A Mothers Love Never Dies

A week ago today, I celebrated my 57th birthday.  My husband took off work to spend the day with me, which was a complete surprise since he never really takes off work!  We were just hanging out talking, riding along , enjoying conversation when in a moment when nothing was really on my mind, my moms face flashed before me, and a warmth came over me that I haven’t felt since the last hug she gave me, I  felt her and I heard her say “Happy birthday baby, I love you”.  My eyes welled up with tears and my heart, although it was happy to be with my “Boo” (husband), was overwhelmed with the love and the memory of my dear sweet mother and her the adoration I always felt from her.  You must understand that she’s been dead for 10 years, and I’ve longed to feel her, to know that she was okay, and I knew in that moment!   Just before that encounter I asked the Lord to let the rain which had clouded my heart stop because It was my special day (Everyone who knows me well knows that I am lover of the sun!)  Then the sweetest thing happened again, the sun shined on me, it literally came out, and I was so thankful again to know Gods love and to feel that “He is particularly fond of me” (The Shack movies). ☺️

I’ve learned in life that we will deal with loss, pain, and deep sadness, but no matter the pain or struggle, it makes it all the more bearable when we have hope, and joy in knowing there is someone who watches over us, who orders our steps simply because we love Him enough to be faithful, and to honor His sons sacrifice with our lives by living in obedience to His word.

I’m so sure that my experience with my mom on the celebration of my birthday was a gift that I had to share it with you in hopes of encouraging someone who’s feeling down because your mom is no longer with you.  I pray that you celebrate her this Mother’s Day with joyful memories, be happy for the time you were blessed to have her in your life.  God bless you

I felt her love and it was the best gift ever!!   

Psalm 147:3. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 103:13. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

A Love That Never Dies

Mothers day is this Sunday.  Don’t forget to honor your mother!  When my mom was alive, I loved showering her with gifts and love on her special days.  Mothers Day and her birthday were very special times.  She meant the world to me, and every Mother’s Day it hurts just a little that I don’t have her physical presence anymore, that I don’t get to spoil her, and that I don’t get to see her light up when she opens her gifts.  My joy came from seeing her smile, from hearing her laugh, and oh how infectious her laugh was!  She had a way of making anyone feel special and very loved.

Listen!   Even if you don’t have the best relationship with your mom, she gave you life and she deserves honor for that alone.  Moms are going to be who they are, just as you are who you are, and no one can change you, right!  The bible tells us that life is a vapor, (a breath) which today is and tomorrow is gone.  It also tells us to, “Honor your father and mother (first commandment with a promise from God),  that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth” (Ephesians 6:3).   Take each and every opportunity that God gives you, to make your mom feel special.  Tell her that you love her, hug her as often as you can, kiss her, laugh with her, enjoy what makes her special to you.  Take it from me, it will mean so much to you, when all you have left of her is a beautiful memory.
