{my compass}

I have so many things to be thankful for this mother's day,
but the most important one is you.
I thank God each and every day for my blessings
and one of the most important blessings is you, Mom!

You have been a rock, a guide, a compass throughout the years...
always there, always praying, always listening, always encouraging, always loving, always lighting up the path that leads to Christ.
Thank you for each and every act of love you have lived out on my behalf.
Especially for the hours and hours of prayers you have lifted up over the years...
I have felt each and every one.

By your example, you lead me to my greatest possession,
Jesus Christ.

I have seen you serve on countless occasions by cooking food, sending a hand written card, visiting the sick, making phone calls, driving women to doctor appointments, forgiving, and by being inclusive instead of exclusive!
Thank you for being a shining example of what a servant should be.
The hands and feet of Christ.

I pray that I may develop the same priceless qualities that you possess.

That's the one thing about a compass,
no matter what the weather
it always points in the same direction.

My cup runneth over

“Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the
she shall be praised.”
Proverbs 31: 28-30

Be strong & courageous. So not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9

I lift up my eyes to the hills-
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip-
he who watches over you will not slumber;
Indeed, he who watches over Israel will
neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you-
the Lord is your shade at your right
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm-
He will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
-Psalm 121

Love always,
