My Roses

I thought I would share a picture of the roses given to me by oldest for Mothers Day. He gave me three roses. He didn't say but I am sure that the three roses represented my three sons. (Do any of you remember the old tv show "My Three Sons"?)

I have given birth to three sons. Most people know about two of them but most don't know about the third. I have two sons living on earth. Then I have one who lives in heaven with Our Heavenly Father. The 29th of this month is his birthday. He would be 23. He was born 11 weeks early and lived for only 11 hours.

I always think of him every day. But I think of him more so at this time of year. Time has made this easier. Time does help to heal things. Now I just look forward to the time when I shall see him in heaven.

Thank the Lord for your children because they are a gift from God. But I learned very early that God just loans those children for awhile. He has given us such a huge responsabilty as mothers. To teach our children about Him and His ways.

"You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up." Deut. 6:8

I pray that you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I did. My sons came with their families and we had wonderful time together.

Your comments are so welcome. Just make sure your comments are ones that you wouldn't mind that Mother read. I do promise not to invite her to read them though.
