My son and I literally celebrate our lives, relationship and roles that we each hold on a daily basis.
Today is mother’s day and he wanted to spend money on me and I told him to make it limited when he asked me what I wanted.
Explained to him that as he gets older, he shall see that it really isn’t about what you buy or how much you spend for your loved ones….
In the end, we just would like to enjoy the fact knowing that YOU REMEMBERED!!! YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGE our hearts, desires etc….
He “got it” …smiled and giggled and simply said, Happy Mother’s Day Mom! …..then kissed me!
Although I am grateful that today is recognized on all legislative calendars that TODAY……. Has been honored to be The National Day of Prayer….
Nonetheless, I wonder why America has this on the calendar when they chose to take PRAYER out of schools!!!
Does that make ANY SENSE? For the families that do not desire to participate in prayer, that’s fine but to totally take it out of schools when we have God / Christ like wordings and saying on our money, court houses, legal papers etc..etc..etc…
Well, where were the church leaders to protest WAAAAAY BACK THEN?
No amount of gold could ever compare to the gift of love that my son shares. I’ve been blind and I couldn’t see that all the love I’ve wanted is right here in front of me. He gives me reason to get through another day.
Maybe it’s how he loves me in his special little way. And when it gets hard for me to sleep at night….
He wraps his little arms around me and says God will make things right! From sweet gentle touches to his bear hugs and a kiss… He make some of my hard days on earth seem more like a peaceful bliss.
That great big kool-aid smile and the twinkle in his eyes…. Every time I look at him it makes me want to cry.
But they’re not tears of sorrow; they’re tears of pride and joy…. To know that all the love in heaven is wrapped around my little boy is shown towards me everyday!
These videos had me almost in tears at 630 a.m. and it made me think of my OWN mother as well as my son Jared. When you have a relationship with your child and it is bond that makes you feel BLESSED to have not only gone through the weight gain of pregnancy ( LOL ) – but to enjoy all of the NON – STOP ripping and running that we do for them.
Mother’s ARE AMAZINGLY STRONG individuals that God created! I am so blessed to be one of them –
Not too many people know that I love country music but even for the people who may find it hard to listen to try this – It is a baptism song and it is a country gospel song! LOL However, I added the first video so you could see / read the words and its amazing meaning –
The word “baptism” is in Greek “baptisma” while “to baptise” is in Greek “baptizo”. It is obvious that this word has not really been translated but simply copied into the English language. In Greek “baptizo” means “to immerse, cause to be dipped, to submerge, to overwhelm”. To baptise something in water means to put it under the water. Therefore in the Biblical sense, to baptise a person in water literally means to put that person wholly under the water.
Water baptism for the Christian symbolises and appropriates our death, burial and resurrection with Christ. It means identification with Christ.
“Therefore we were buried with him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4).
Oh, how the years go by, Oh, how time can certainly fly.
From once just a thought in far away dreams, now into my arms and in my eyes gleam the presence of you.
Your laughter and smiles which go on for miles, warm my heart and soul.
You’re growing up so fast, as I wish each moment with you to last forever. My little boy will someday be a man and right by your side I will forever stand. I will pick up the pieces when you fall, I will hold your hand and help you stand tall.
We will always have a BALANCED BOND that keeps you as a man without being too dependable on me. You have been taught to understand loyalty, respect and honor and for this you are blessed because of it.
And when the day comes when you are on your own, never feel that you are alone. As you know now, God is always with you and shall continue to lead and guide you if YOU let Christ do just that.
No matter how near or far apart I am always right there in your heart. Always remember whatever you go through that no matter what, I will always love you.
