Mom's Advice for Me

We always long and miss our loved ones who have gone to their Heavenly home. But the Christmas season seems to make us think of them more. 
How much they enjoyed the season...how excited they were to see the gifts opened...that special food item that they loved the most...the love they shared every day.
I miss my Mom who has been gone almost 2 years now. I often wonder what her advice would be or how she would handle a certain situation. As I look through one of her many Bibles I find my answers through the pages she wrote on. 
 "Listen to His Spirit. We should take time to listen to what God may be saying to us! Prayer time is more important than talking!"
"God sometimes speaks to us in the quiet time of our soul."

 "The more we grow in grace, the more we will think of others." "Our character is measured by what we do when no one is looking." "Father, help me to use each day that you give me in a fruitful way that benefits others and myself."

"Praise God for: 
all your trials
all your victories
all your tears
all your times of laughter."
"For every moment you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness."
"Call to me and I will answer you and tell great and unsearchable things you do not know" Jer. 33:3 




Thank you Lord for a Mom and Dad who knew You, talked of You, and showed us the Way. Thank you Mom and Dad for teaching me these truths.

  3. Yes, and I do love it!! Mama has two devotional type books I kept and she had underlined in them, and to me, it's as if she is still speaking, and giving me comfort and advice when I read what she underlined, or any words she wrote!! Thanks Brenda (and Lisa) for sharing !! Written words matter!!!
