You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

This Memorial Day is special to me in more ways than one. It marks the 70th anniversary of my baptism. I was 11 years old and was baptized in a little church in Norwalk, California. It was shortly after this, in the month of June that I first met my future husband. I had no idea I would one day marry him, but that did happen almost exactly ten years later in 1958. I spent the summer of 1948 in Oklahoma visiting relatives there and Clif happened to be the little brother of Charles who had married my aunt Vivian. They lived in Lawton, Oklahoma. I would later move to Lawton and go to high school there before moving back to California. I'm always amazed at how God works things out.

People will be busy this weekend doing special family things but many will take the time to share with us here on Spiritual Sundays.

Thank You

Thanks for all the nice comments last week. Mother's Day was wonderful. Memorial Day will be here in a few days followed by Father's Day. I'm telling you, it won't be long before we will be putting up the Christmas trees. I really don't mind though. I love Christmas. 😀

So for now let's keep the inspiration going. Time to link again.

Mothers are special. God gave mothers a unique "function" to fill. Of course not all women are mothers but all women have/had mothers. My wish for all children is to have a mom as special as mine was. No, she wasn't perfect. Nobody is, but she came pretty close. She went to be with God in 1999. It has been over 18 years and I still miss her, especially on Mother's Day. I remember back in the 1960s women wore corsages to church on Mother's Day. I have special memories of my hubby buying me and my mom corsages as she always visited us on Mother's Day. One year I made her and me dresses that were similar. Hers was yellow, mine was blue. Our corsages matched our dresses. This was just a couple of years after women stopped wearing hats and gloves to church.

Here's a picture of us.

So this Mother's Day, we are all blessed to be able to share our inspirational thoughts. Thank you again for your faithful participation.

This linky list is now closed.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free. nd masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him. - Ephesians 6:5-9 (NIV)

Welcome Back

Here we are now into the month of May. Mother's Day is coming up next week. Many times I am blessed with early Mother's Day gifts. This year has been one of them. My iPad was getting really old and slow so now I have a brand new model. I got the first one for Mother's Day years ago and have enjoyed it more than I ever thought I would. Then I "hinted" to my daughter I would like to have a keyboard case for it so she ordered one online. It came really quick so she went ahead and gave it to me early. So is Mother's Day basically over for me? Nope. I'm looking forward to being taken to the restaurant of my choice and spending the day with my hubby and children.

So now it's time to begin linking again. Thank you for being here and for participating.
