Mount up with wings

Today has been a different day. It is a day full of thoughts and memories. Every year I try not to allow this day to get me down, but something inside of me just won't let it go.

Thirty five years ago today my sweet Mom left her place here on earth and walked the streets of gold. She left suddenly and quickly. Which does not make it easy on family.

"Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted."

I know thirty five years seems like a very long time, but when you are young and you lose your Mom, there is a hole left in your heart. It really does not heal, but it becomes like a wound that has a scar over it. You always know it is there.

With time the pain does subside, but the memories are still there. And I am so thankful that our loving Lord has come along side of me to lift me up on the days when the memories bring back pangs of pain.

"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."

Spread your wings............

I can relate, it has been 34 years since my own Mother went to be with the Lord, one day we'll be together again.Praise God for His faithfulness! Have a good day and be blessed.

It really does leave a hole in your heart, doesn't it? My mom got to meet my children, but my younger sister had not had children yet when she passed. There's just nothing like a mother's love, and it's sorely missed. Thank God we know we'll be reunited someday!
