"Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, it there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy meditate on these things." Phil 4:8

Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is special to me, and is a time for me to remember the faithfulness of God!  I am so grateful to the Lord for giving me the desire of my heart, to be a Mom.  I didn't become a Mother in an easy or traditional way.  I waited, cried, doubted, prayed, waited and waited some more.  And after almost 10 years, the Lord fulfilled His promise to me and gave us a son.  I was now a Mom, what an amazing feeling! 

Our son was all that I had prayed for; a boy, a blood relative on the paternal side of my husbands family, and sensitive to the things of the Lord.  While the first two were obvious at the beginning, we have seen the last quality show itself at a young age and is continuing to grow. 

It is absolutely an amazing and overwhelming feeling to become a Mother, and such an awesome privilege.  He blessed us 6 1/2 years later with another boy who is also a true miracle of God. 

While being a Mother is challenging at times, it is such a blessing.  To have my little one smile from ear to ear and say "Happy Mother's Day" is such a sweet feeling, and a reminder that God is faithful to all His promises.

My first Mother's day was shortly after we brought our oldest son home.  This was the "Family Circus" cartoon in the newspaper on the morning of my first Mother's Day .

God is FAITHFUL!!! 
Psalm 37
