Mother's Day

Hey sweet friends. It's Mother's Day weekend and for those who are mom's let me say that I pray you have a blessed and happy day!! For those whose arms are still waiting let me say that I love you and I pray that the Father will fill those arms SOON! For those whose arms were full but are now empty let me say that my prayers are with you and for the Father to wrap you in His own arms in a MIGHTY way this weekend. And for those whose arms are full of grandkids let me say thank you. Thank you for all you did, for the sacrifices, for the troubled times, for all of it and for all you continue to do!!

Given all I went thru with my own mom this past Jan. I must say that it stings quite a bit to not be at her side this Mother's Day but I'll be seeing her in a couple of weeks. I love you mom. I know the chances that you'll see this are slim, but know that I'm thinking of you and praying that the Lord will give you a wonderful weekend. He's obviously not finished with you mom, so I'm anxious to see what He has planned because it's apparent your work here isn't quite done. I love you and I can't thank you enough for all you've done for me. I miss you.

To my children let me say that it is the greatest joy of my life being your mom. I never knew how full my heart could be and I never dreamed the Lord would be so gracious as to bless me with the 3 most AMAZING kids on the planet! One that is so compassionate and funny, one that is so loving and kind and one that brings joy and sunshine wherever she goes. I pray that one day (though I know at times it seems it will NEVER happen - haha) you will rise up and call me blessed. I pray that you will grow to serve the Jesus that your mommy loves with her whole heart!! He is all you need. Not me, not your daddy, but Him!! I love you guys!!
Have a happy Mother's Day!!

I hope you have a great Mother's Day! Mine and your prayer for our kids is the same. If they can just come to a place where there is nothing they want more than Jesus, I will be incredibly, incredibly thrilled! It doesn't matter to me what they do for a living, what they accomplish, who they marry or anything long as they chase after Jesus above all else, the other "stuff" will fall into place. I do hope that one day they will rise up and call me blessed. Right now they just rise up and call me crazy : )

Love you, girl!!!

I miss you! It has been so crazy since we went out of town and came back to testing at school and teacher's meetings, etc. I hope you had a great day with your family and that they were good to you! I am sure you had some sweet gifts. They are always so sweet. Love you! Happy Mother's Day!
