My Momma

Hello sweet ladies,

I thought I had better put up a little post. Yesterday morning I got a call from the nursing home that I needed to get in there fast. They thought my Momma was soon to be entering the gates of Heaven. Long story short it did not happen until 7:14 last night. Almost all of her family was by her side. I was very very thankful for the Lord detail in that. I kept ladies posted on my fb, but those of you who follow I wanted to let you know. This morning I have a meeting to get her burial in place. Please pray for me, if you wouldn't mind. It will be probably my hardest time in my life walking this out. Momma's are pretty special! The fact that she is not there physically now will be something I will have to get used to. Even though she couldn't talk with me.......her eyes always let me know I was hers. Even yesterday morning when I got there and we saw each other. She let me know. Wonderful memory! Can't imagine my life without her, but I will learn like so many of you have had to learn. Thankful she knew Jesus as her personal SAVIOR! Makes life tolerable! 
Heart you ladies, very much!

Hugs to your day!

Linda

    1. Hello Peg, it is a comfort knowing that. I am so delighted she is rejoicing and enjoying her reunion with others in our family who have gone before her. Plus getting to see the two babies she lost when she was young. That took a toll on her life. They were full term. That is a sweet thing, as a Momma it must be so precious for her. Thank you so for your kindness! Hugs, me

    1. Thank you Susannah, how sweet of you. I so needed the guidance yesterday making funeral arrangements. The Lord was faithful. It is so expensive to bury someone. Please pray for us that He would meet our needs in that matter. He has never failed in taking care of myself and my family.......I am His....precious gift! Hugs, me

    1. Hello Beth, that is amazing. I have some memories that we have been talking about with my sis these last few days. My sweet man also found a pic of my Momma, my sis, myself and brother. It was nice to think of the times she gave us as children... when we were growing up. He is leading the way.....thank you for the prayers.....I even feel the supernatural strength and last night for the first time I slept all night long. You were used! Hugs, me

  12. I am so sorry for your loss, Linda, but so happy for your momma that she is now with her Lord and free from all illness and confusion. I remember what my 17-year-old daughter said through her tears when her best friend was killed: "It would be selfish to wish her back." And I am sure you feel the same.

    God is so good. He will uphold you and walk through this with you. He will never leave or forsake you. I'm sure as you walk this journey that you will sense the prayers of your friends upholding you.

    In His Love,
    Mrs.T

  14. I know that the fact that she is in glory now is a great comfort to you, Linda. But it is never easy to lose a mama. I still miss mine after 9 years, and Mother always said that she missed my grandmother, who had died 30 years earlier. But God is so gracious to give us joy in the midst of sorrow. What a blessed Father we have! You are in my prayers.

  15. I haven't had to go through this situation yet but I did lose my dad a few years ago, so I empathize with your sadness. I'm so glad you have the joy of knowing your mom is with Jesus! Just think of the joy she's having--it puts our Christmas happiness in the pale. I will be keeping you in prayer.

  29. Hi Linda,
    So sorry to hear about your Mom. We will be praying for you. My Mom couldn't talk her last couple of years but I knew she still knew me by her eyes. We have the hope of seeing our moms in heaven some day. Thank you, Jesus, for coming to earth as a baby and then dying on the cross for our sins. May God bless you and your family.

  30. I'm all choked up, LInda... remembering my mother's own passing and the look in her eyes earlier on the night she went to be with the Lord. I'll never forget it. Ever.

    Praying that all those sweet memories bring you much comfort along with the knowledge that our Lord and Savior has her safely in His arms and that she'll be spending Christmas with HIM!!! And praying that all the details of the service to honor her life goes smoothly.
    Blessings and peace,

  39. Linda, I am so very sorry but so thankful that you can celebrate your mother's life knowing that she is in our Lord's presence right now. Yes, mommas are very special. Mine went home at a young age, 25 years ago. There are many days that I miss her terribly. Praying for God's comfort for you and your family especially now during the holiday season.

  40. So sorry to hear of your loss. My mother died seven years ago and the feelings of grief still come back at times. I think they always will, because as you so wonderfully put it, Mamas are special. Like you, I know mine is spending Christmas with the Lord and that does help. I know that this is an especially difficult time of year to adjust and I will be praying for you.

  42. So sorry, dear sweet Linda.

    Dear heavenly Father, Thank You that Linda's momma is now with You for eternity, and while Linda continues to walk the journey Home to meet up with her again....please, envelope her with Your presence, power and provision ~ especially for these next days and weeks ahead.
    Praise You and thank You that You are her constant companion and ever-present Help, and Your love is an ever-flowing fountain of grace, mercy, goodness, strength, and compassion. May she drink from it abundantly, especially when deep thirst arises. In Jesus' matchless name I pray. Amen and amen.

  45. Oh Linda, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I know the grief you are feeling. My mother went to be with our Lord in the spring of 2006 and my dad just before Christmas in 2010. But we do not grieve as those who have no hope. Our hope is in the Lord who made Heaven and Earth! Many blessings on you and your family, especially during the upcoming days without your mom here in the flesh. With love.
