The Power

Sometimes we just need a little reminder.
Psalm 118:vs24

Any of you who has had the honor of knowing my parents, already know that, no matter what, some time during their day together, they would recite this verse. One of them would, out of the blue, start the verse, ending wherever they wished, and the other would finish it.
They believed it. They never missed a day.
Then four yrs. ago, Dad passed away, he rested.

This would have been his birthday week. As my sis in TX says, "I wonder if they celebrate birthdays in heaven?" I wonder.
His birthday, his and Mom's anniversary, holidays, important events to him or them, of which there are so, so many, all of these days, some are so heart-wrenching that we fall to our knees missing him.

Have a grateful day., no matter how difficult.
God is always with us, only He knows His plan for our lives on this earth. Only He governs our time here. He is a most wonderful, kind and compassionate God, even when we are reminded that we are not meant to fully understand His plan.
Keep faith, for it is the one thing, the one gift, that keeps us strong. Pray for the healing through tough times. He is there.

Yes, even when the most healthy, kind, beloved person in your life gets sick, God is always there to carry them through. Big prayers, little prayers, all answered, tho sometimes not the way we wish.

You see, I'm from a large family of love and support which comes from our faith in God, but there is always room for more prayers.

Prayers from you and you and you and you, will be greatly appreciated as our Mom recovers. She is going to be fine but needs even those who do not know her, to pull for her as she heals. She is a very private person, my reason for not going into detail, but she does understand the power of prayer. She and Dad taught us well.

I thank you in advance, for your help. God be with each and every one of you and

Our prayers for a saintly woman. She made an impact on our lives in just the few minutes we had with her. Her hardy personality and lifestyle has been a part of our conversations as the pictures pop up on our Screen saver.

Yes it is a beautiful verse, the one they built a life around. I will never forget her words about your dad. "I was looking for a good father for my children, He was the best!"

Love you girl. Happy Birthday to Daddy, tomorrow my dad would be 108.

Love you all, great post!
Sherry & Jack.

What a great thing, to have parents share such a strong faith with each other. I will pray for your mom. And I'm thankful for the fine example she gave you and then the rest of us through your blog.

Dar, you and your siblings have so much to be thankful for - and it is obvious that you are aware of it. Your parents sound like "my kind of people". May I ask what church or denomination you were raised in? I think you are aware by now that I am from a Classical Pentecostal background. Not ashamed of it. Hope there is no sinful pride here either. Let your Mom know that we're praying for her.

Great post. The only 'real' power is prayer. You really need to get the book Heaven is for Real... it's about a little boy who dies for three minutes.... based on a true story...try to google it.

My prayers for your Mom no matter what she is going through and prayers for all your family.

Hello..thank you so much for kind and generous comment about my dad and Happy Birthday to yours... we can still celebrate even though they are not physically with us...that is what I hope to do. Best wishes to your mom...it is just so hard for the ones left behind but we take it one day at a time. I learned so much from my dad and hope to honor his memory with the way I live my life...take care..

Thank You all for your prayers for Mom. She will be home again tomorrow and well cared for by her Lord and family.
