Pilgrimage of Love.

Pilgrimage of Love

I continue to count God’s immeasurable Grace…

the gifts He continues to lavish upon me…

My mother turned 87 yrs. young…

and we gave her a surprise party….

Oh and did we surprise her…this is a miracle in itself…

But more than delight her with surprise...

My prayer was for her to be blessed knowing she is….

Honored…celebrated…and treasured…

So we gathered her closest friends...

Most everyone there was at least 20yrs younger than her…

Most are the ladies she plays golf with 3 times a week….

I know…that statement itself is amazing…

My mom is not one to express much emotion…

But joy was written all over her face…

She drank deep the love poured out upon her…

my mom is still more pepper than salt...my sister more salt than pepper...me...hoping to take after my mom:)

I sat quietly worshiping God…

He has done great things…

He has taken me on a pilgrimage of Love…

And love leads to the Land of Grace…

Where forgiveness and acceptance flow…

And I too drink deeply of His love that is poured out upon me…

The love that He desires to pour out on all His children….

I pray for each one the Lord brings here today…that you will receive all the Love He desires to pour out on you today…                     
May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing[through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing(bubbling over) with hope. Romans 15:13(amp)

  1. Your mom. Kind of reminds me of my mom – my mom's in heaven now. Family – so important – so important. I smiled as I read this – and smiles are important – so thank you – and God bless and keep you and all of yours.

  2. Craig...so thankful this brought you a smile...Blessings to you and yours as well...

    It made me a little weepy though. My 80 year old mom is my best friend and I love her so, but she lives 750 miles away. I am so thankful for cell phones and the internet! I hope to have her here with us for good some day.
    Happy Birthday to your sweet momma:)
