I am very thankful for Christ’s saving grace in my life.
The phone rang late this morning.
It was the hospital emergency room notifying me that my mother had been unable to be awakened by her daily caregiver, and had been transported to the ER.
That she was not responsive.
Did I want heroic measures.. no .. she did not want that ever.
Mother and I had discussed this ad nauseam when Kat was dying.
NONONONO lifesaving measures.
No she did not want that.
Was I sure.
I thought that I was emotionally ready to accept my mothers death, I find I was wrong.
My mother is a theist.
I am a Christian, at her direct request I quit talking about the grace and love of God, The Gospel she simply would not hear. I have prayed for her daily since I became a Christian many years ago.
I know that God is always faithful, and I know that God loves us immeasurably.
Today is a day I simply have to rest in the Word, because I am quite unable to do anything else.

The New Blog Carnival Showcase is pretty exciting, it’s a good way to get exposure for your blog, beside’s being a great opportunity
to check out the newest competition to read new bloggers.
If your wondering..I do actually check to see if the blogs submitting happen to be less than three months old. And I did post a warning that if you continue to submit blogs that are older than that
for instance from April of 2004 I will not be listing you.
This week proves the euphemism : A closed mouth gathers no feet.
raising4boys.comis a family blog, with great and insightful parenting helps..Sounds like with 4 boys they have plenty of experience..
In potty-problems they have some super advise about rewards versus punishments..
That wraps up this weeks Carnival! Look for next weeks Carnival at
Dave’s Not Here.

I had a letter from one of adopted soldiers family over the weekend.
She was thanking us for our support of her husband , who is on his second deployment in Iraq. It was tremendously humbling…I wrote this to show a bit of how I feel about our hero’s
and the price they and their families pay for us.
I live in freedom, here at home
But my freedom it wasnâ€™t free
Your life and heart, your mind and blood,
Pay freedoms price for me.
I send my little boxes,
Packed with love and wrapped with prayer
Hoping that when they reach you
Smiles and laughter will light your life
While you read these odds and ends from one
Whoâ€™s safe at home.
I read the lists,I check them out
When I do not hear
that youâ€™re alive and fighting still
My heroes over there.
I write your families of the pride I feel in you
My unsung heroes who live and die,
protecting those under the shield
of freedom being bought.
I tell them just how much their love; it helps you to be strong
Their fears, their tears I pack away, and send them up to God.
Until our freedom is secured
I will write and I will pray.
That our nation will stand as one.
Offering you honor as you pay
The price that freedom costs.
