Happy Mother's Day

My daughter with her sweet baby son. He's now almost 5 years old and will start kindergarten in July. I just can't believe how fast he's grown!

My son as a baby....

and as a grown man.

Angel of God, my Guardian dear, to whom god's love entrusts me here.

Ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide.


This is a picture of Mama's hands and her "birthday cake and candle" three years ago.

The following is written in the margin of one of my Women's Devotional Bibles.

"Hope uncovers new possibilities and shows us what can be done. It wrestles with angels, looks impossibilities in the eye and winks. Hope springs eternal. Hope supersedes all good intentions.

Positive thinking, on the other hand, can get you only so far. When that train of thought won't get you further, jump track and keep going by the power of God's grace. After all, you know Immanuel, God who is with us.

Dare to believe that he has planned greater things right around the corner for the ones you love. Hold your loved ones before the throne and count on God's answer in their lives. Don't let your ability or inability to think your way around circumstances hold you back. Pray and rest. Then pray some more.

---Barbara Johnson"

Have a great Sunday!
