Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for my Mom's wisdom. She always knows the right words to say to me to keep me focused. She gave me some great advice today and opened my eyes. It was one of those "aha" moments and I am just thankful that God can use my Mom in such a way when it comes to giving me the words I need to encourage me.

I feel like my relationship with my Mom, which was strong to begin with, has strengthened even more now that we are sisters in Christ. I am so thankful that in this season of my life I can have my Mom walking in faith with me. Our bond is so much more spiritual and just knowing that we are both keeping each other in prayer is amazing.

In two weeks she becomes an official member of the church we have been attending. I am so proud of her and can't wait to see her grow even more in her relationship with Christ. It is going to be so cool to be at the prayer service when they announce her membership!!!! 

Here we are a few pictures of me and my Mom! The first one is at her surprise 50th birthday party a few years ago, the second picture was at her vow renewal ceremony to mark her and my Dad's 30th wedding anniversary and the last picture is at my wedding (December 2000). Her and my dad will be married 36 years on November 25th! This is the same day she is going to be officially named as a member of our church :)

Wow.....I miss that with my mom. It is a very special feeling and a spiritual bond that only God can make between the two of you. I am so proud of both of you and very happy Titi is taking this very important step in her life. The rest will follow suit in God's perfect timing. He will reward her faithfulness and yours. I miss you guys!! I love you!!! Btw, thanks for hooking me up with the blogging thing, I think it helps me more than those reading. :) God bless you!!!
