I plan to honor my Mom in a Mother's Day Post, but also want to take a moment to thank God for her and some other special Moms today, as well.
♥ I thank God for my precious “Momma.” A preacher’s daughter and one of 11 children, she is one of the sweetest women who ever lived. She and I always celebrate Mother’s Day a day early. We’ll be having breakfast together on Saturday morning and will then spend much of the day together. It’s always a special time.
♥ I thank God for Millie, the Mom I inherited when I married Tom. In her mid-to-late 80’s (no one knows for sure because she won’t tell!), she is such a character! She and I have always gotten along beautifully and I love her dearly.
♥ I thank God for the biological Mom who carried my husband Tom, and then selflessly gave him up for adoption as an infant back in 1957. I doubt a Mother’s Day goes by that she doesn’t think of him.
♥ I thank God that Tom and I still have our Moms in this life to celebrate. What a blessing.
♥ I thank God for “Aunt Helen.” Though never able to have children of her own, she adored and practically helped raise my husband Tom and his two sisters. When I came along, she was one of the first to embrace me and make me feel a part of the family. We love her like another Mom.
♥ I thank God for the privilege of being a Mom, specifically of being Brennan’s Mom. The blessings God has granted me through him are immeasurable. My heart overflows with joy.
And now, a few additional praises we’ve been celebrating recently in our house…
♥ The birth of a beautiful, healthy baby girl to my dear cousin, Beth. She’ll make a wonderful Mom and I’m so happy for her! It makes me smile to think of her celebrating her own first Mother’s Day!
♥ The engagement of two very precious and Godly friends, Noah and Nicole. Noah just left earlier this week for a six month missions trip to Australia. Nicole will be planning their November wedding while he’s away. It is such a joy to see a couple so very much in love! Can’t wait to see how God uses them as husband and wife!
♥ With the completion of one last exam this morning, my son will be officially finished with his freshman year of college!
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever. ~Psalms 136:1 (NLT)
May this Thursday find you thankful...
P.S. Thanks Sweetie! God spoke to me through your words this morning.
