I posted about my mother for Mother’s Day since doing this blog. She is still going strong at 89 years of age. If you go through my Mother’s Day May posts in this blog’s archive, you will find out that my mother made fabulous suites, dresses, and hats. She was the kind of parent teachers loved because she would not stand for me and my siblings cutting up in school. We had to behave and respect the teachers. My mother loves the Lord Jesus Christ as her savior. You will also read of her health issues and realize that the good Lord blessed her to still be here with a sharp mind. Thank you, Lord.
The photo of my mother and me is from early April of 2013. She still looks the same. I always post a music selection that she especially enjoys. For this year, it is Every Praise by Hezekiah Walker.
This is the Memorial Holiday Day weekend. I give honor to all who died in military service to United States of America.
My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
Her children arise and call her blessed…
I am blessed to have my mother still with me. She is 88 years young and despite her health challenges, my mother is a strong woman of God. This photo of my mother with me is from April 2013. The Lord continues to bless her 3 daughters, son-in-law, three granddaughters, a few cousins and a host of nieces and nephews with her wonderful presence. I wish her a happy and blessed Mother’s Day.
A Favorite of My Mother
I am cross posting. I started a blog of purely Christian posts. Due to this being the Resurrection holiday weekend, I am sharing my post from my Christian blog.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him
The Lord Jesus Christ took the punishment for our sins. And yes, we all sin, because we are not perfect and do wrong in our lives against God. Whether we sin knowingly and unknowingly, it is still sin. The Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins. None of us can atone for our sins on our own merits.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Oh gracious loving heavenly Father, I cannot thank you enough for your precious Son, Jesus Christ. You gave Him to take the punishment for what I do wrong against you. I pray that other people will come to see that they need your Son in the pardoning of their sins. In the name of your Son, my precious Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray, Amen.
Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes. Psalm 119 in its entirety
2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
