Ain't it good.....

.....to be alive?!?

I didn't go to church yesterday.
I felt God speaking to my heart to spend the morning with my Mom.
I didn't sleep much Saturday night 'cause I couldn't get her off my mind.
Pappy got dressed for church and dropped me off at Mom's on his way.
As soon as we pulled into the driveway,
I spotted a cardinal sitting underneath her hydrangea bush in the front yard.....
and immediately knew I had made the right decision to spend time with Mom
I was there for about three wonderful hours with her and my brother!!!
At one point, I took a walk down into the field toward the woods.
It brought back such sweet memories of when I was a kid and would play in the woods all day long with my cousins who lived next door.  

Yesterday was an awesome, beautiful day.....
in more ways than just the weather!!!
Mom told me how much she enjoyed me spending the morning with her!

It's wonderful to be alive....
and to know that God has EVERYTHING under control!!!


Breathing in Jesus,

Deb

  1. Hi Deb! I am sure that you reaped the grace of being such a comfort to your Mom (and brother). Just as she always was for you. I bet that walk was so peaceful and inspiring.
    Have a good week,
