"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in the truth"
3 john 1.4
I pray my girls choose to follow Christ not only because of how we raised them , but because they themselves desire a relationship with Jesus, a personal relationship.
This week I was honored to attend the funeral of a godly woman. A matriarch whose children have walked with the Lord. Whose grandchildren walk with the Lord.
She was 96 when she passed away.
She loved Jesus & she loved others.
Isn't that the greatest comandment?
I'm sure the angels greated her with a hug & called her "Suga" as she called her loved ones in the manner only a gracious southern woman can speak.
Her son is a tender man. He took care of my Savannah when she was a baby, in our church nursery. Every week, I mean every week we would come to pick her up & she would be safe in his sweet lap.
He is the husband to one of my most favorite sweet friends on the planet. My friend Katie has told me so many sweet precious stories of Gam...that's what they called her by the way. Her name was Mary Frances...isn't that gorgeous?!
Anyway, Katie is also one of those women who raised her daughter to walk with the Lord.
I pray I can be 1/2 , just 1/2 of what these women are.
Days like today, I feel I have already fallen so short.
Days like today I wish I could have a do-over.
Days like today I wonder what will they say about me...
Sweet Katie & Bob, I know you miss Gam. I wish I could have sat at her feet & learned from her. But I have you Katie..& I treasure every minute I get learning to walk with the Lord from YOU>
Yes, something about this pose I just love. Took this one at this last vacation....
& took this one , last year.
