Proverbs 31:28-29 English Standard Version (ESV)
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
YOU WERE BORN FOR PURPOSE ~
Maybe you didn't have the best mom and this weekend brings sad memories. You can purpose to give thanks to God for your life. Let us show others love and be kind.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
I love going into this weekend knowing I was born on purpose and for purpose. God is the only one who creates live and made my birthday March 12, 1955. I thank my mom for going through the pain of having me and doing her best to raise me. I choose to focus on the good, the positive and happy that she is not in a care home anymore. She has freedom with Jesus and that makes my heart happy.
The year was 1980 and I became a mom. I had my daughter (Tracy) and I knew then, my heart felt something I couldn't explain. The joy that filled my soul and it continues as I watch her with her daughter (Averie). My son (Chad) was born in 1983 and he has two beautiful daughters too. Their mom (Ashley) went through so much during her first pregnancy and now has other children. I am so blessed to have children and grandchildren. This weekend brings so many memories and new beginnings. I do my best for my family and I pray daily for them. I believe a praying mom and grandma makes a difference. I thank God for Tracy and Ashley who gave me grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is 11 now and I see how quickly time goes by. Purpose time with those you love.
MOTHERS DAY WEEKEND ~
Make this a beautiful weekend. Remember the good times and the special times of life. Remember kindness and living in today. Let the past go and the things you can not change. I live in Napa County and the weather is beautiful this weekend. Not only beautiful outside, but beautiful inside my heart. Knowing that I could have not seen another mothers day because of a heart attack last year. I choose to value this weekend far more than anything. I am blessed beyond words. I hope you purpose this a good weekend too. God has created you for such a time as this!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
