Today I have no new cards to post, haven't had time the last few days! Today I will give a memorial to my mother, who passed from this world to the arms of Jesus on June 14, 2003.
My mother was born in 1916, raised by a twice widowed mother who came from a strict German background, graduated from high school at 16 and worked in a 5&10 where she met my dad whom she married in 1936. Together they began a relationship that spanned decades of caring, dedication to Christ and raising a family. Always active in church work, my dad studied for the ministry when I was in high school. When he was ordained, he and my mother embarked on a new phase in their lives, serving the Lord together. When my dad passed away my mother continued to witness, pray for others and lend a listening ear to many. Her example of being a Christian was known by all who knew her. To us, her family, she gave advice, love, forgiveness, strength and her never ending faith. To her many friends who called her "MOM", she offered her generous spirit! Her greatest legacy to me was her wonderful relationship with God which saw her through many difficult times and poor health in her last years. So today as we honor and remember our mothers and all the women who make a difference in our lives, may I wish you all a wonderful day of celebration! Hugs and blessing!
