Happy Birthday Mom

Although she left us for heaven in 2002, Mom's legacy lives on in our hearts. My brother Terry and I were brought to the Lord with Mom's help in 1973. Mom also prayed for our sister Julie to come to the Lord. Julie now lives and serves our Savior. I miss her very much. Sometimes I don't say much as it gets to me emotionally. However, my Lord knows that my heart misses her with each passing day. Well, there will be a coronation day. Someday when the Lord returns, we will all be reunited. I can only imagine what glories my mother is seeing in heaven. Although there are times I wish she could come back to me here, I know she is better off in heaven and wouldn't want to come back to this forsaken earth. I know she misses us too. So, even though you aren't physically here Mom, Happy Birthday! "I love you. I'll see you again." Those were the last words I spoke to her. I intend to keep my word on what I said. In will be a great day when we all will stand before our Lord, home for good! Amen.

PS- Sorry for the bad scan of her pic. My scanner has developed a mind of its own and is behaving like a rotten child at the moment. The spanking is on the way.

    I'm just catching up on your blog. Sorry that it's been so long since I've been here. Since I have a lot of time off for Christmas, I thought I'd read and comment on some of my favorite blogs. Now that I'm done with that, I'm going to read yours. Heh heh. That was a joke. Sorry.

    Anyway, it's touching to read about your mom. My parents are still alive and well, but they do not know Christ as Savior. My youngest prays for them every day. It's very sweet and convicting for me.
