Sacred moments on Mother's Day

For the second year in a row, I took some time out of this Mother's Day to visit my mother's grave and plant a flower there. Since shortly after she passed away, this place has been special to me. I don't visit often enough, but truly experience the promise of resurrection as I place myself there. It has a gorgeous view and I always sing at the top of my lungs the words found in
Job 19: 25-26

"For I know my Redeemer lives and in the end He will stand on the Earth,
though my flesh, it be destroyed, yet with my eyes I will see God!"

You probably can't see it, but on the headstone is the verse from
Revelation 2:10
"Be faithful until death and I will give you the crown of life."

It was so special to have JJ there. I so look forward to being able to make his Mor Mor real to him as I share stories with him as he gets older.

I am also thankful for the remembrance of my mother on this Mother's Day. Never far from my heart whose faithful words spoken in love instruct me as a mother. I consider myself so blessed to have had 28 years of such a mother...

A Blessed Mother's Day to you all!
