life is funny but sometimes it works

I'm 62 today and I thank my sweet mom for my life, all she taught me to be and all she sacrificed for me. I love you Mom!

been working on this a couple days
guess it's as good a time as any to share
I walked through raining leaves of rust and gold.
Memories ran down my face.
                                                                   I hummed an old hymn.                                                                     
The melody danced around my heart.
I felt God’s grace in my broken soul.
Psalms restored me.
I finally felt whole in my life.
God’s faithfulness put me back together.

thoughts of never again

never again will I get bad news about my parents
never again will I cringe at a certain phone number
never again will I worry over my parents' health
never again will I doubt they are happy
never again will I wonder what they need
never again will I wonder if I'm doing enough for them
never again will I feel life is unfair to them
never again will I be sad for their limited life
never again will I ask why they had to age

some never-agains are good

release and receive

releasing your mom is necessary to receive her as you angel mom

Life weary

I am tired but

God holds me and I rest in his embrace if only to the end of this sentence


Lost and broken

I need repair but

God glues the pieces of my life together again with his super glue of divine love


Hurt and questioning

I still feel confused but

God has the balm and the answers to both


Dark and scared

I tremble but

God is my light and protection
