Flashback Friday 9

Our boys are grown and on their own now. It’s been too many years since I’ve held them in my arms as little babies. Yet, it seems like just yesterday. How we used to sing so many songs together and then I would tell them stories from the Bible, or read them Dr. Seus’ many books…Here’s one of my favorites:

One of the quotes in the book is,

                “I’ll love you forever

                I’ll like you for always,

                As long as I’m living

                my baby you’ll be.”

 

Though they are my babies, I am ever so proud of the fine young men they are turning out to be. They are so charming, polite and they love education. 

 

This Sunday is Mother’s day and it will be a beautiful one because I am so honored that my children have spread their wings and can fly ❤

Flashback Friday 5

ImageHere we are with a bunch of most amazing friends having church in the park on a very hot day!  The view was captivating as the music was incredible while we were carried away from all of our cares that try to weigh us down.  I share this photo because when I was a child I used to pick these white flowers up and say my prayer and blow every one of them away…and if there were any left, well I would grab it off and toss it into the air and watch it fly, trusting in those little white helicopters.  Since those delicate moments, I’ve had some harsh realities that crush those soft flowers. But God is so much stronger, for the Bible says in Galatians “1:3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen”  So, as trials arrive, which they will…I can stand confident that I am never alone ❤
