Forever I Am Changed By Your Love

Where were you when Christ first met you? Where were you when He came to you in your brokenness? Did you expect the warm welcome you received? Or were you expecting what Mephibosheth, grandson of Saul, did from King David? I had a guy working for me that shared a story about shame and heartbreak thru a tough time. The story was spurred from a note being passed around the warehouse that read "I SO WE TODD DID"...
God gives us a beautiful picture of kindness or "grace" being extended is in 2 Sam 9.

I received some old photos of my mom today from my uncle Mark. Thank you Uncle Mark for this gift to have as a memory of my mom. I cannot even begin to tell you the wave of emotions that came over me as I looked into this young version of my mom some 41 years ago. I was 9 months old in these photos and mom was pretty young herself. My first reaction was wow, I miss her so much. I miss her laugh, her smile, her unique sense of humor that had us rolling in laughter so often.
She is dearly missed and there are days I still cry, missing her so much since her death on Mother’s Day weekend of May, 2009. Wow, where have the years gone? Looking into the eyes of such a young woman, it hit me how short our time on earth is here. It really is a just a temporary home. We are here, we live a time and then we leave. I would bet that if I could talk to my mom today, she would say it feels like that picture was taken just yesterday and yet so long ago. Where does the time go?
This got me to thinking…
