Good morning........to the most precious ladies ever!
Dixie Lee Reid Leach
When I was young our family had a fire in our home. We lost almost everything...a lot of pictures included. My niece had this picture of our Momma. It is a favorite one that we have now.
What a last few weeks. Ups and downs........yes.......but one thing I have known for sure.... my Heavenly Father has known from the beginning of time what my days would consist of. He is sufficient for every thing He puts and takes out of my life. He is my Rock for all the days of my life. Loosing my precious Momma I knew one day, would probably be one of those times I would need my Jesus. I have leaned on Him and He has not failed me.
One of the gifts to myself and my sister Shannon was that she was going to be with today to help bury our Momma. Due to the fact that she was diagnosed a few months with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and had an appointment set in stone for last Tuesday we had to wait for the funeral. The tests were run and the Doctor said that she in no way could come. Our hearts were broken to say the least, but we still knew the Lord had not left us. We would continue to put our trust back in His care. We waited thinking that she could still come after the tests. More tests.......more tests and the answer was still no.
It is still well with our souls. Hard...... another one of those "hardest things in life"!!!! We all have them, disappointments that hurt to the core, but my Jesus said it was okay, that our refuge is in Him alone. I put up on facebook that Momma would want Shanny to take care of herself and we always "minded" our Momma.
Today is a new chapter in our lives....may the Lord help me to take the baton... in hand from my Mom's, run the race and be an example of CHRIST to those who come into my life. Woman have a huge role that the Lord wants them to fill in sharing to the next generation the Truth of His Word. It is one that we can not take lightly. Our Momma would find great joy this verse.
"I have no greater Joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4
Thank you for your prayers and support during this time. It has been such a sweet blessing to myself and my family. Today at 10:30 this morning we will say our goodbyes. My great Joy is that one day I will without a doubt say "hello" again. Having my Momma in Heaven forever! What a precious gift from our Heavenly Father! God is so merciful to His children and we can take great comfort that He will never leave us or forsake us!
If you do not know Jesus personally and have not accepted His free gift of salvation.......do not let today go by without doing so.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His Name (Jesus). John 1:12
