In Memory

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Today marks two years since my mom died. She was a godly woman and a wonderful example to her children and grandchildren. She left a legacy of love and servanthood. I love her and miss her greatly. I look forward to seeing her again in heaven!

    I am glad we do not grieve as the unbelievers do, without hope; and yet grieve we do.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mom, mine has been gone for 7 years and it seems like yesterday. We both have to hold on to the wonderful memories. I bet both our Mom's have met in heaven and are discussing the two of us!!!!! emoticon

    Sending hugs your way, Carrie! I'm really missing my Dad lately; Mom, too -- though she's been gone so much longer, the ache isn't as strong there. We do have the blessed hope of being reunited in heaven, and I count on that! I have to focus sometimes on Bible passages that talk about our inheritance in Christ -- that is far more important than the 'things' left behind by our parents. Dealing with those 'things' can be tough (as you are experiencing). God bless you with wonderful memories and strength to deal with your father's needs as well!

    I am so sorry Carrie! I know that these "anniversaries" can be difficult. Praising God w/you that she is with her Savior and that you have such wonderful memories of her...what a godly example! And am praying for His continued comfort for you and your family. emoticon

    The hope and joy of seeing our loved ones in Heaven is the connection we have as believers in Jesus Christ as Savior. Thanking God for the beautiful woman of God your Mom was and the legacy she left. Interesting enough, I was just looking at the folder of all of my Dad's things from his funeral service and memories just yesterday too, and thanking the Lord for my Dad's faith!

    These wonderful relationships between a parent and child are such a blessing. I can sympathize with the void of not having a parent to call on the phone or set down with. It took me a wrap Then I remembered that everything is in God's plan. I was blessed to have parents that were Spiritual leaders. I know I will see them when I meet the Lord fact-to-face. That has been a comfort to me when I longed to see them. It sounds like it is for you as well. My hope is that I will be able to set a good example for my children and grandchildren that my parents set for me.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful mother. My mom passed away this past July so I can identify with how you feel. We really miss them when they are gone. May the Lord comfort you. Hugs, Shirley

    How nice of you to honor your Mother's memory today! It is so difficult when they are called home and away from us. But as you said, we'll see them again. In the meantime they will watch over us.....blessings and peace to you....
