Last week Precious husband’s mother left her worldly body and went to be with her Lord Jesus. She had lived a long, full life. The last several years had been physically and mentally challenging for her. So even though there is sorrow there is also joy.
Grandmother K. was always a thoughtful, giving person. She remembered everyone’s birthday – you could count on receiving a card in the mail. She would sit and read books to the children. She lived in our home for a while and no matter how hard I tried I could not get her to stop cleaning. She understood how difficult it could be keeping a home full of six children clean – she raised six herself.
I always admired her raising those six by herself. She worked tirelessly, sometimes two and three jobs to provide for them. Her oldest son pointed out the fact that for many years she slept on the couch in order to give them beds to sleep on. So today…
Father – I am grateful for the gift of an admirable mother-in-law. Truly as my brother-in-law says – we hit the jackpot of mother-in-laws. I am grateful for…
her birthing Precious husband
her provision for those six
she sought to instill a love for the Lord in her children
she took time to send birthday cards
her reading to my children giving me a moment of peace
Counting the treasures the Lord provides…this week #1101-1110.
