Everyday our lives are so busy with so many obligations. For example, those of us that are married, need time with our spouses to cultivate a relationship that will last. Then there are the needs of our children, the pets, the household chores, other relationships (family and friends), work, church activities, social functions, and school work, etc. How do we manage all these demands and still find the time to pray and read God's word so that our spiritual man can be fed and grow stronger. This is one of the questions that I always ask myself. I hope this blog will help make it easier to balance our busy lives so that we can make the time needed to be the person that God desires us to be. May I be a blessing to you.

The Sand Dollar Legend

The Sand Dollar Legend
Upon this odd-shaped seashell a legend grand is told, about the life of Jesus, that wondrous tale of old. At its center you will see, there seems to be a star, like the one that led the shepherds and wise men from afar. Around its surface are the marks of nails and thorns and spear, suffered by Christ upon the cross; the wounds show plainly here. But there is also an Easter lily, clear for us to see, the symbol of Christ's resurrection for all eternity.

Mother's Day Memories

With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I am reminded of all the things my children have done throughout the years that let me know they appreciate me as their mother.

One year, Mikki and Toni wrote me a book and drew pictures to coincide with the story they wrote. I still have those books and when I ran across them two weeks ago, my eyes began to mist. I remembered their small faces filled with joy when I opened their books and read them out loud. They smiled from ear to ear and hugged me close.

One year Jake detailed my car and it shined and looked brand new. Another time, he turned the dirt in my garden over so his mother could grow the flowers and vegetables she likes so much.

This year Daniel my oldest sent me a beautiful bonsai pink azalea plant to my workplace. I was so touched.

My children are the reasons, I strive to be the best mom ever. Sometimes, I do alright by them. Other times, I can only pray for God's grace to help me out. Nonetheless, if I had to do it over again, I would still be their mom.

Do you have any special memories of being a mother or of your own mother that you would like to share? If you do, share them and be a blessing to others.
