HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
Today is Mother's Day; a day that we thank our Mothers for the so many sacrifices, caring, and unconditional love that they have given us from their womb throughout our lives. Sadly, my Mother went home several years ago to be with the Lord. Though she no longer walks this earth, I am here to tell you that she is with me. I have a photograph of my Mother in every room of my home. She has become like the "footprint in the sand," as her spirit emotionally carries me when I'm weak and her words encourages me daily. It's amazing how much and how often I feel her spiritual presence. It's further amazing how often I speak and write about her. Her teachings guide me still! Her wisdom and her words have become immortalized in the fiber of my very soul. There isn't a day that I don't feel her presence or influence. A couple of weeks ago, I dealt with a challenge that seemed for a moment insurmountable. When my Mother was alive, she was always my first "go to" person to seek advice as I asked, "Momma, guess what happened? What should I do?" As I reflected, suddenly her words, guidance, and admonition appeared in my mind out of nowhere saying, "Baby, pray about it. Turn it over to the Lord. If you gonna pray, don't worry. If you gonna worry, don't pray." From the Heavens, my incredible loving Mother still guides me...and I listen! She was for sure the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31. She was/is the Queen of my heart! Thank you Momma for everything! Words can never express how much I love you and how much I miss you - as you gave your all … unconditionally! Rest in Peace.
