I noticed on Blessed 1 that she was asking others to post their blessings on Faithful Friday. Here is my post.
Today is a very special day - it is the first day of year 44 for mama and papa. The bride above is just as pretty today as she was 43 years ago. See - I told you if you have trouble finding my blog just use the search term - "Tom Cruise look-alike"! Just click on it and it will take you right there!
Mama is very special - she has had Christ at the center of her life continuously since childhood and was always making her decisions based on what she thought Christ wanted her to do - somehow, I was fortunate to be a part of than decision process.
Mama - always has a smile - except if she has been hurt by papa w/unkind words. papa has done that in the past and has asked Christ to forgive me and also mama. Mama carries a burden for others. Yesterday was no exception - yesterday, on our anniversary - mama and papa both shed tears for our friends. Sherry laid her husband to rest yesterday, we wept at Sherry's lost, but rejoiced at Alan's gain. Rene still struggles with cancer and mama talked to her husband Don yesterday - he said; "I don't like God's process, but I am trusting him." Rene is in hospice care - mama came home in tears.
Mama prays for each of you - by name. We both consider this "'our" ministry. Some of you are real bio family, others of you have been adopted as our children, (Ed is too old to adopt as our child so he is my "older brother - lol) Some of you get extra prayer, like Brandy & Jake for being in new circumstances that life has put you in. Consider yourself blessed when mama prays. Just like E.F. Hutton - all of heaven listens when mama prays.
Mama - I love you! Thank you for our wonderful family and being my best friend!
Jesus - thank you for mama - I am very humbled that you blessed me of all people with this wonderful woman of God.
