Happy Mother’s Day~

To all the mothers……Happy Mother’s Day.

You may have to cook your own meal…clean up your own kitchen…or you may be treated to a day out! Whatever, and wherever you are…may your day be filled with the presence of the Holy God in heaven.

On Saturday, we celebrated our “mother” with lunch at her house. After lunch we began something that may very well become a tradition in our homes. Mark had purchased balloons for each family member (and we had one special guest, April’s mother-in-law! Welcome Cindy!) to write a note to my sister Wanda and let it loose to the blue sky above. We each wrote notes on the brightly colored balloons and then went outside, and on the count of 1…2…3, we let them soar! (Pictures are below–a few are missing and I am “behind the camera lense”)

She would have celebrated her 5th blessed year as a mom. She is celebrating today with the King who gave her that precious life 5 years ago. Thank you Mark, for the gift of Saturday. It meant more to us than you will ever know.

Just a few hung around in the tall oak tree nearest us, but they soon decided the open sky was the place to be as the wind shifted their course upward. Our course is shifting as well. We are headed in a firm direction. Heavenward.

I missed each of you this past week….but can I tell you I enjoyed the break? I will blog some events of my trip…(spa day girls…need I say more?) I will share pictures and things I talked over with the Lord. Some of the things anyway. I will also catch up on some e-mails at night in between other house chores which you all know too well about!

Have a blessed day ladies. I missed you!
