Mother's Day

I was completely blessed this Mother's Day with pampering at a spa, gifts, beautiful home made cards, and delicious breakfasts.  My husband and kids went above and beyond and actually turned Mother's Day into a Mother's Weekend!!  I loved the gifts and time at the spa but my favorite moment of the weekend happened at church.  Pastor Robert had all the Moms stand up so he could pray over us.  As I bowed my head, I look down to see my husband's strong, faithful hand rest on me and then 5 pairs of little hands that followed. This was the gift of all gifts. I pray it will be etched in my memory forever.  It was the most precious "picture" of God's love for me and the grace He has poured out upon my life.  I was so overwhelmed with thankfulness. I am the least deserving of all He has blessed me with. Yet even when I was unfaithful to Him, He was faithful and had a plan for my life.  A plan so precious and full. So unbelievably rich and fulfilling.  When I think of the mercy that He has shown me, I am truly overwhelmed.  I am a sinner saved by His amazing grace.  Thank you Lord for a wonderful family and for an unforgettable Mother's Day.

1 Cor 2:9  However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"

My gift table: a plastic squirrel, a frog, a frame, a silver bracelet with an anchor charm, a candle  some nail files and ribbon, a gift certificate and a beautiful soap dish and memo thingy!
