Her Son.....Our Saviour

This is a post I wrote 4 years ago  (4/8/12) on "Shakin' the Foundation" blog site. I share it every Easter. I pray it ministers to your hearts. 
****************************************************************************


As Easter approaches, I have been thinking alot about Jesus' time here on earth. We have all heard of his birth,his teachings,his signs,wonders and miracles. For the most part, we have been taught his life story from those who had the honor of walking daily with him, from those who witnessed every aspect of his life here.

However today I am seeing his life through a mother's eyes.......

Mary's eyes.....

 As a mom myself, I can feel her joy when she looked into the eyes of her precious son. The miracle that she had been chosen to give birth to.



That sweet precious baby boy that sometimes would fall down while playing, the one that cried out to her to pick him up.....

Can you imagine looking into those beautiful eyes knowing what his true purpose …

My WORD is Real, saith the Lord

The last several weeks I have been reminding myself of all the promises my daddy God has made to me over the past few years.
Reality..........I have been struggling in this part of my season. I have yet to see the full manifestation of His words spoken to me over the last four years......   And  I  am ,sadly, struggling to see them come to pass.
Me,  in the flesh, have so many "whys" and "how comes"...... The " how much longer's?" and "come on already's"..... They scream from my every pore ready for this part to be ohhhh so over!!!
The lack of my understanding of this time frame has my mind spinning with question after question..................
I want to shout at the top of my lungs, COME ON ALL READY DADDY!!! (God) A few answers would be appreciated, just a few Lord, please?
I want to drop to my knees,face to the floor and whisper, enough is enough Lord.............. At this point I feel as though He will need buckets to store my tears instead o…

I am so tired Lord

Recently my days having been ending with me looking something like this.......
When I walk through the door at the end of my day, I have no energy to accomplish anything more.

My mind feels as though it's warped from all the over drive......
My emotions are scattered all over the place....
My feet can not take another step, and I can not think another thought.

My weariness is over taking my daily life's steps......
My mood and attitude are ones of crankiness.....
My lack of sleep has over taken my face and the dark circles under my eyes are now canyons.....

My alarm clock has become enemy number one and my desire to get up and go has now got up and went.......

Crushed but Not Destroyed

* Photo from Wizard of Oz*
Hard pressed on every side would be an understatement for me over the last several weeks. I feel like this picture minus the ruby slippers.........  ~sigh~

I feel like I have a huge house sitting on me, crushing me, unable to move and no ability to breathe......

This house ,that sits on me, is reminding me of all my past failures and mistakes in life.....
Taunting..... Pressing.... Squeezing me from all sides...... Showing me my child is stepping on to that same road I walked so many years ago.

When I show the enemy he can not get to me personally, He goes after the next best thing....
My loved ones. He will remind me of my past choices in life, my hardships and mistakes and whisper I am to blame for my child's choices......

The last few days my emotions have been all over the place...... Happy, sad, angry, fear and frustration.

Happy comes from a new season that is opening in my families life.... Sad for the ending of one..... Anger from  choices that are being made...…

Turning Pages~

Turning a page in a book can be exciting....... The words written leave you wanting more of the story...... You hang on to every word and then......
You turn the page.
 Over the last 23 years, my pages have all been written as the story of a mom .....  My words describe my girls.... All their accomplishments..... Their steps into new seasons of life...... Their lessons learned..... Tears cried..... Smiles of joy.....
My title, "Mom"........... plain and simple.
I have found myself starring at this page I am to turn..... My last child is getting ready to leave the nest. And when I say leave the nest, I mean her bags are already packed, her decisions are made and there is no turning back..... ( in her mind anyways)
Eighteen-itis has set it and set in hard.....
I am having a hard time enjoying her last few weeks of high school..... I do not want to turn this page..... I see my baby throwing herself into the world without thinking her choices out....
I fear when I turn the page I may have my own …

Blooming into a new Creation~

2 Corinthians 5:17 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!




Spring is fast approaching us and I must admit, I am very much ready for it!!
 The new blades of grass are sprouting through the dead brown blades.......
And the dandeions are bursting through the once cold, hard ground.
I am done with the cold dreary days..... The overcast cloudy ones..... The damp chilly air that lingers in my bones at the end of the day...... And the darkness that closes in around me early each evening.
I have had times in my life when it just wasn't the season of winter that loomed in around me..... My season was one of dark,cloudy, stormy days that instilled a chill to the depth of my soul.... A season where I was dying to myself and my selfish ways.....
A season of correction and redemption.
When I surrendered my complete being to Christ I had to die to my fleshy desires.... No more could I do things my way.......
Dying to our flesh is a daily task…

Discourage by Brenda Yoder

{Dis}courage Does it feel like sometimes there's a big, thick wall surrounding you,isolating you from all that is good on the other side?
I call this walldiscouragement. I don't like it.
Are you discouraged?  What are the bricks in the wall surrounding you today?

In discouraging moments, it seems like God is far, far away. Far away on the other side of the wall. No matter how you cry, scream or wail, it's though He doesn't hear. There's silence.
That's where the discouragement lies - in the silence. I've been surrounded by a silence lately in the midst of noise.  Can you relate?  The world is SO noisy yet what I long to hear most from is my heavenly Father. I need encouragement.  Do you need encouragement?
I was blessed by a blogging friend as I read her post of discouragement (read it here)today.   I've been blessed by the faith of friends who are fighting for the life of their child.  People who refuse to stand, look at the wall, and give up. I looked into the ey…
