Who will pray for me when Mama's gone?


Happy Mothers Day, dear friends...

The picture above is of my Mom many years ago standing in front of her grandparents old homestead...
I am much older now than my mother was in that picture.  And my daughter is older now than my mother was in that picture..
Time has surely passed by and now I am a grandmother...
My mother is a great grandmother.
My daughter is a mother..
What is our legacy? 
What will our children miss when we are gone...
Time moves on dear ones whether we want it to or not... And if the Lord tarries we will go Home...
One day a few years ago one of my grandsons was with me when something surprised me... I said... ohhhh lord....
He looked at me shocked and said..."Grandma... and you a praying woman!!"  smile... The dear boy did not think I should say that but I am glad he thought that his grandmother was a praying woman...
That is the legacy I want to leave my children...
Mama prayed...  
Prayer touches the Throne of God.. When we mothers are gone to our heavenly homes we know that our prayers are still incense around the Throne of Grace...
They are not in vain....
We not only need to pray but we need to teach our children to pray.. We need to show them how to go before the Throne of God and receive blessing and strength...
They need to be taught that prayer changes things... 

I am so thankful for my Mom today... Whenever I am burdened with something I can call her and know that she will join me in prayer...I know that every morning she mentions my name and my children's names... 
I am also thankful to have not only a praying mother but also a praying daughter and daughter-in-law...
My grandchildren are blessed today..

I pray that God will bless all you sweet mamas out there today with his gracious blessings... That your legacy to your children will be prayer...

Have a wonderful Mothers Day... 
I am hugging you all in my mind.. 
And remembering you all in my prayers.. 

God bless...

  5. Oh Faye...this post was wonderful! All I could do is think of my own loving Mother who has gone to be with the Lord. I am so thankful that my own Mother and both of my Grandmothers were praying women. They all taught me how to pray....and pray I do. My son and daughter pray and have faithful hearts, too.

    Thanks, Faye, for such a delightful heart rendering post. Happy Mother's Day to you, too. You deserve to have a nice day.
