In Memory of my Mom

Today's blog is dedicated to the memory of my Mom..............

My Precious Mom, It was one year ago today, Dec. 1, 2008, that you went to be with the Lord. While I knew that your health was failing, I was in no way prepared for your untimely death. I will never forget being at your side and holding your hand, as you walked through Heaven's gates. I felt as though, Dad, Joel and I literally handed you over to the Lord and that has brought such comfort to me this past year. I would not have wanted it any other way except to be at your side as you departed this earthly life.


It took me some time to be thankful that the Lord took you so quickly, but you had always said that you never wanted to be in a nursing home or to be totally dependent on anyone. The stroke had left you in such a state that you would have never recovered from it and the Lord knew best. He saw fit to spare you from such a life as you would have had and He spared us from having to see you in such a state.

I cannot tell you how I've missed you! My life will always have a void that no one else can fill but the Lord is slowly but surely filling that void with His peace and comfort. I miss sharing my day with you. I miss the encouragement that you always had to offer. I miss the prayers that you always prayed for me. I miss your sweet, sweet spirit. I just simply miss you.

I will forever be grateful for the example you set before me and it still inspires me in my day to day life. I pray that I, too, will leave such a legacy for my children.

I find comfort in knowing that you are in a place far greater than here and I know that you are living life abundantly. And, I bet you have a big crown of jewels adorning your head.

Yes, it's been a tough, tough year, but it has been a time that I have enjoyed sweet fellowship with my Lord and He's constantly reminding me of His ever constant presence. I have grown through my grief and I'm coming through it a stronger person than I was before. I have no doubt that He ordained this season and I praise Him for giving me one of the most wonderful Mom's in the world for 56 years. I rest in the assurance of being reunited with you one day.

I will always love you and cherish your memory in my heart.
