For those of you whose mother has passed from this world, may your fond memories comfort you in her absence. It is also a blessing to know you will see your mother again when reunited in heaven.
We can thank Jesus for the hope of being reunited. It was his sacrifice on the cross for the sins of the world that made it possible for all who have believed and received him, to be included in the resurrection.
The picture of my mother’s magnolia was taken the year after she died. She would have loved to see the spectacular show of blooms. A close-up reveals how delicate its flower is. Many associate the magnolia as a symbol of gentleness, nobility, strength, beauty and dignity.
I think my mother’s character reflected these virtues as well. She was an amazing woman to raise 9 children. She was comforter, teacher, nurse, mediator, encourager, chauffeur, domestic engineer, and the many other roles she fulfilled in her lifetime.
Thank you Lord, for blessing me with a wonderful mother.
