Seasons of life.......


A little over a week ago, we got a call that my mother, Mary, was having some serious health issues. She has been in the Care Center since falling and breaking her hip almost three years ago. She did fine for awhile but these last few months she grew more and more frail. On Wednesday, February 3, 2016, she passed peacefully. Her season of life on earth ended and she has gone home. Some of her last words to me were "please take me home". One never knows.........did she mean take me home to the home we knew as children? or take me home, Lord? She was tired, lonely for my dad and her family that has gone before her. She is at peace and all is well. Her funeral will be later this week and we will celebrate her life. She lived 87 years and that is a gift.

I really will get back to blogging regularly one of these days.......there is a time for everything. Just not time right now.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers, Sandi. I would like to imagine that she was asking to be taken to her forever home, surrounded by her Lord, family and those gone before her. Bless her long life.

God bless you, Sandi. It will be different now and always, since you can't just call her on the phone. But she will always be near to you, and will always love you and live in your memory. May she rest in peace.

Sad news and I am sorry for your loss. I don't know how many times over the years since my mother passed away that I wished I had asked her more questions about her life before I was born or when I was too young to be aware of.
