.........spent alot of time in contemplation, reflection, etc.
Losing my Mom as a horrible hit. Earlier in the year, my Grandmother also went to her heavenly home. We went from 5 generations to 3 generations in less than a year.
I felt a HUGE hole, loss, in my life. I spent most waking hours of my days crying.
At times the pain seemed unbearable and I felt alone.
My Mother was more to me than my Mom, she was my best friend, my confidant, my prayer partner, my ROCK. Together, we upheld every member or this big family in prayer.
I prayed to God for days asking for the comfort and peace I so desparately needed.
The purpose of this post is not to bring us down again, but to share.
After days and days of pleading with God, I finally got my peace. I came to the realization that I now would carry on the prayer for my family, I sure can do that.
God let me know that he is here and I could "feel" his loving arms around me in comfort.
The week of Christmas, everyone in my home came down with a flu. It was bad as all of us were down sick at the same time and pretty much on our own. By Christmas Eve, however, we could finally stand on shaky legs and felt like eating a bit again. So, Christmas Eve day, we quickly brought in the Christmas tree and hastily decorated it. Then we prepared food and gathered together and we had a very nice time.
Christmas day, more of the same.
You see, the Lord brought this to my attention, my Mother was whole and in the company of the very one who's birthday we were celebrating here on earth!! Our saviour Jesus!
I would not call her back here ever.
I just want to let you all know, no matter how badly you feel, you need only to call upon the Lord, he loves us all. ALL OF US.
I'll be glad when this year ends, looking forward to new beginnings. For me, sewing is therapy and I'm really itching to get back into it again.
Have a safe and healthy New Year, I'm sure you'll hear from me again before then!!
