While she was alive, she never rammed the bible down my throat or preached at me. All mama did was pray, love her family, serve her community and was actively involved in her local church.
Mama was known as the peacemaker. She settled disputes in my family without taking sides. Mama’s mission was for people to know Christ, dwell in peace and love. She was a mother to everyone that needed one, to both men and women alike.
Faith enjoys grocery shopping with me. She think its cool that we can “hang-out” together especially for grocery shopping. Faith is 4yrs going on 10!
I enjoy grocery shopping by myself; it’s a like a mini holiday by myself. It’s my alone time to think and just clear my head. I don’t get many opportunities to spend alone time by myself. So I look forward to my time alone shopping. I am not a fan of malls so you will hardly catch me there.
Wishing you a happy mother’s day. I hope this prayer blesses you as much as I was blessed on receiving it.
Below is a collection of prayers sent to me on Mother’s day and I am passing it forward to you all.
Beloved O daughter of Zion, you are like a nursing mother who cares for her own children. You will be joyful mothers and your children will be joyful children. You are blessed forever.
No one could ever take your place. You will live to enjoy the fruit of your labor. The joy of motherhood will never depart from you.
You are the nation’s greatest treasure, the Lord’s best helpers and the most blessed among women. You divide your time among your children but multiply your love for all of them. You add the care of the home by subtracting many extras in order to do these awesome tasks; with long life God will satisfy you.
Mothers, you’re wonderful women, so gentle and strong. You make the world beautiful. You can do five things at the same time. God has endowed you with good things in life. As you celebrate this special day, may the Lord bless you with a good gift that only He can give you.
May God continue to uphold you in your position? May God continue to grant you the grace to support, care and love your children. God will grant you wisdom to teach your child in the way of the Lord. May you enjoy the fruit of your labor.
Happy Mother’s Day to every woman; may your peace flow like a river and your righteousness like the sea waves.
Our little bundle of joy arrived 24th March 2011 weighing 7lb.01. We are grateful to God for this addition to our family. Our words are nothing compared to the joy we feel.
There are no words Lord, to say thank you. You are truly the covenant keeping God. You keep your words above your name; you are not a God that changes His mind. Your mercy and love overwhelms me. How can we ever thank you for all you have done.
Lately my daughter has started asking about her grandparents. Each time, she has taken me by surprise and I haven’t figured what to tell her yet.
I try my very best to always tell her the truth, I realized that we need to established a relationship based on honesty even at such tender age of 4yrs. Children may be young but they are not stupid.
So why am I hesitant regarding my reply to her? We only have one living grandmother and she does not reside in America but most importantly hasn’t played an active role in our children’s lives.
Up till now it’s been ok and we do get by, our lives are busy with various other grannies from our church that genuinely love them. There is a part a grandparent plays in the lives of their children and I must admit that it is lacking in our children lives.
My father died in 1986 and my world as I knew it changed forever. Growing up and having my father around was great. I took it for granted that he would always be around. I was only 13yrs old when he died and I never wanted anyone else to take his place. There was a void in my life with his passing away that I never knew would happen.
Since his passing on, I have had very few male role models in my life; I have not looked for any. I didn’t think I needed one either.
It is exactly 5 years ago that you took me to be your bride. These past 5 years have been a blessing with you and our children. There is not one day have I ever regretted marrying you.
Adey means “ The Crown”, you have been my joy and crown. (Phil4:1)
You have been to me, what Abraham was to Sarah, my lord (Gen18:12). You are gentle, kind, considerate, loving and have no bad words to say about anybody.
You are still the man that I fell in love with 5 years ago, and baby you get better and more handsome by the day. You are like a bottle of wine, the older you are the sweeter you get.
A week before we were schedule to get married. We had some major setback. Somebody gave a very damaging report about me of which you and the officiating minister for our wedding were informed of. The information was so damaging, honestly I won’t have gone ahead and marry me too.
Growing up together we were never close. She and I were like night and day. She was the straight A student and I was not. She was the perfect daughter who would always abide by our parents’ rules and regulations. I did not.
She never rebelled. I did. I almost never heard her curse while we were growing up. I did curse her out a lot and she gave me some of the best beatings of my life!!! Ouch! She didn’t talk much back then. She used one-liners, like “Stop it or I will whoop you.” Of course I didn’t listen. So she bashed me over the head. I just thought she was jealous and miserable. True, there was a lot to be jealous of. I was a spoiled little brat, I had a big mouth on me, I was rude and disrespectful, and I was doing badly at school. Yeah, I can see why she was so envious. NOT
