Happy Mother's Day to all of you! As I reflect back on this day I naturally think of my two mothers. One that gave me life and one that taught me about the Lord and this life. Both loved me and did what they thought was best for me and for that I am eternally grateful. My biological mother has been gone for 34 years and my adopted mother for 32 years.

I've now been a mother myself for over 38 years and a Nana for 10 years. I realize I am so blessed and thank the Lord I have my loved ones in my life. I'm glad we have a day to celebrate mothers, but at times it makes me very misty-eyed for those of us that have lost our mothers to death, or lack of love. Unfortunately, I know many and I truly believe their loss must hurt more and deeper than mine. I know my mother is in heaven rejoicing with our Savior, but others suffer knowing their relationship just isn't what it should be. For those of you, I pray God will give you a special peace today and know that others care about you, especially our LORD.

Post 275 and still counting.....

This is one of my favorite scriptures and today after all the drama with the stock market I found myself saying it in my head a thousand times: "The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and they are safe." Proverbs 18:10 (NIV) I believe so deeply that He is watching over me and I just need to call His name to run into the tower. I can see why the tower was such a symbol of strength. It's huge and solid and is immovable. In my own strength I'm weak, but He is so strong!

My security is not in my 401K. I've already taken a wild ride with it last year. Whatever we will face, I believe, we can have trust in our Savior. I may be up and down, but He is steady and solid.

Updates on the Past Week

I thought I would catch you up on a few updates from the past week. I had a fast, but safe trip to Tampa and it was extremely relaxing riding along listening to Joyce Meyer tapes. I had attended the Beth Moore presentation on So Long, Insecurity the Saturday before so I had lots to ponder. I feel like I'm in a much better place than I've been in a long while.

Mark will be having a stress test tomorrow and his cholesterol tests came back high. I pray he will do fine and it will only be something very minor. I have a feeling they'll put him on some cholesterol meds with those numbers. Please keep him in your prayers.

Avery and I went to a Garden Party yesterday morning at church. We had a nice luncheon and a great speaker. We had our pictures made and I will try to get some on here. You know I'm somewhat challenged when it comes to the scanning deal.

She only has about 3 weeks of school left and then she'll be in 5th grade. Time goes so fast! It's time to get my stuff packed to head back to Atlanta until Friday. I pray you guys all have a wonderful week and try to find some adventures.
