Thankful Day 24

I thankful for godly parents.  I am thankful that someone took the time to invite them to church.  I can say, as a second grader, I was less than thrilled in going since I would not know anyone there.  But it soon became a part of my life--three times a week.  I am thankful that serving and worshipping God were an important part of their lives and they lived at home what they lived at church! 

I am thankful that in their old age, even with Mother bed-ridden and Daddy moving slower, they have been faithful to God.  They have been prayer warriors for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mother and Daddy, I am so very thankful for you!!!!!  Thank you for leaving us a godly heritage to follow!!

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!
