Many of you know I lost my Mom to gastric cancer in 2009. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of her. I write this blog because Mom introduced me to blogging.
This past Friday, we placed a Christmas wreath on her grave. We picked a wreath with a plaid bow because Mom loved plaid.
This time of the year I especially think of Mom and all the things we would be planning. We would be going to Christmas open houses at some of our favorite stores. She would tell me all the things she’d like us to do before Christmas Day. Mom made the holidays special.
One thing for sure, all of our activities and family get togethers would be centered around Christ. Mom was passionate about her relationship with Christ and if you were around her for very long, you would know that.
This is a snapshot of Mom’s devotional book. (Mom was a writer at heart and we have lots of journals that Mom has written in. She also wrote for Home Life Magazine and in our local newspaper.)
I love that she wrote out, “I’m taking a definite stand.” It makes me smile because she didn’t have to write that for me to know she was taking a stand for the Lord. Her life showed it.
Joshua 24:15 says, Then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.
Let me ask you, as you prepare for the all the festivities over the next month will it be evident to those around you, whom you serve?
As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
