Monday through Friday at 6:15 am, my hubby and I roll out of bed to see Son #5 off to work.  He is 20, but as a mother I still like to see my offspring off in the morning. :-)  This morning was no different than any other except our front gate was opened.  Both, Husband and Son, shrugged their shoulders, took a quick look on the porch and did not see anything disturbed.  I on the other hand ask them to check for footprints in the snow on the sides of the house.  The both look at me as if I ask them to run in a Polar Bear run!  

"Of course there are foot prints!  We  have children who have been out in the snow!!!!"  :-)

Son is off to work and we go back to bed.  It is Christmas break, you know! But, I can't sleep!  My mind has to think about the gate that was opened!  Husband of course, is back to sleep within seconds!  Then I had to stop and think, God has not given us the spirit of fear.  What is that verse in the Psalm 56?  "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."  So I had to leave my fear with God and turn my thoughts to thanking Him.  No one was waiting in the shadows, no one took our snow shovel, no one broke in. 

By this time I am wide awake and decide to go ahead and get up and have my devotions.  After I have my devotions, I notice the clutter!  Where in the world did that come from?  I would assume daily living with 13 people in a home!  But, IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS!   I have things I want to do...bake bread, stamp, stamp, laundry, stamp, stamp...

Clutter drives me nuts!  Not any one's clutter, just the clutter in my home!  I am glad we don't take the newspaper!  Grrrr!  That is the most annoying clutter of all!  I guess I need to get this self in gear and get the clutter distributed to the proper owner!!!!

Wishing you all, whoever you are, a most wonderful Christmas!  I trust that you have received the most precious gift of all...salvation through Jesus Christ.

 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
 Act 4:12

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!
