Thankful for God's Precious Word

 "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding."
"He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength."
"Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:"
"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
                                                                                 Isaiah 40:28-31 

Yesterday afternoon I was burdened with more than I thought my heart could carry.  Dear hubby reminded me that I needed to give my burden over to God and let Him carry it.  So quietly I had to ask God to forgive me for trying to carry something that actually belonged to Him.  This was brought "home" a second time during church last night.  Our text was in Genesis where Abraham and Isaac were going to Mt. Moriah to sacrifice.  Abraham's faith in God was so strong that he was willing to do exactly what God had asked.  You can read the account of his faith in Genesis chapter twenty- two.  
It was brought to mind that when we are following God, He sometimes asks us to do things that some would think "you are out of your mind".  But I know that no matter what He asks me to do, it will be for His honor and His glory.  So, as hard as it is to wait, I know that my strength will be renewed.  I will grow in faith as I wait on Him, knowing that "when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold." (Job 23:10b)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
