I Thank God... Day 1

I thank God for my Mom, Barbara. She helped me to be creative, loving, and kind. Although I was not raised in a Christian home, she did teach me to "be good". I grew up with a strong sense of right and wrong. She did send me to Bible classes after school when I was in first grade. That's where I asked Jesus into my heart. She also sent me to VBS a few times. It was enough to plant the seed in me. In 1980, I gave my life to Jesus, thanks to her sowing those seeds in me. She did the best she could raising me and my brothers. I'm so thankful that in her last years, as she battled cancer, she fully gave her life to Jesus and pursued Him with passion. Thank you Jesus! Jesus, please tell Momma, that I miss her, I love her and I'm thankful for her love, protection, care and just who she was and is in Christ Jesus. Thank you Lord!

Who are you thankful for in your life?

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
