"God has planted eternity in the
human heart." (Eccl. 3:11 NLT)
We love her Father, she's like Mary, the
mother of your son, a twinkle in her eye
yet knowing how much her son would
suffer for us. Our mother is so much
like her, caring, worrying, and knowing
she does her best even though we
do not appreciate her the way we should.
"One day when you are a parent," she
said, "You will understand the love
I have for you, my child." And this
knowledge is almost overwhelming.
Protect her, Father, as our love grows.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: email@example.com re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
