My Sacred Sunday Joyful Contribution

My mother and I

I must feature my mother here. And to all the mothers of the world, thank you for giving life.

God gives strict instructions in Exodus 20:12.
"Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy GOD giveth thee."
Note: There is no claus saying, If they give you all you want!
          If they are perfect only.
          If they don't abuse you.
No, the instruction is clear. HONOUR. (respect and give credit)
Unfortunately some parents are so bad, that one may wonder.......
However, without them, we wouldn't be.

My own mother is now 92yrs old and legally blind.
She lives alone in a Retirement village by choice.
A few months back I went to care for her, the poor darling had shingles.
Putting her onto Muti-B vitamins has assisted her quick recovery.
Mum used to play the church organ....and piano at home.

Following the breakdown of my first marriage I'd go and spend much healing time with mum.
She felt, a good soak in her deep bath was the answer. So in I'd pop and lay while she played beautiful old hymns. Listening to her sing the words, caused tears of release to flow. ....

"What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear. 
What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer."

Thank you Mum for the faith in HIM... that you bestowed.

  19. Wow. So many comparisons between your mom and mine (who passed away last December). My mom turned 92 in October. She was also legally blind the last few years of her life, and when I was in high school, she was our church's organist and choir director. Please give your mom a hug and a kiss for me, and when she asks who I am, just tell her I'm "an admiring younger man!" ;-)

  20. How lovely Silver Fox...she will delight in that. Thank you and may God bless your day.


Please take the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading your replies. Often you encourage or teach me something I need to know. Life is full of wonderful surprises, so go ahead and AMAZE me today.

Dio ti ama così siamo connessi.
