It’s Monday morning, and I am sitting with my mom in the hospital.
My sister and dad brought her to the hospital in the middle of the night because she was experiencing extreme pain in her abdomen.
They have given her morphine for the pain, and we are waiting for results from an x-ray.
She is very much out of it, but will sometimes speak out of her head. The words she has said the most are, “I love you, Lord.” and “You all are wonderful.”
It reminds me of the scripture,
“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.”
My mom’s heart is overflowing with love for her Lord!
Here is a picture of my family that we took on Dad’s birthday, September 4th.
That’s my brother, Blake, in the middle.
He is Mom’s pride and joy.
He recently wrote down some words that had been laid on his heart. I think he did a great job describing our mom.
He said I could share them with you…
There is None Better!
I hear people brag about their moms, but if they ever met mine they would know. There is none better.
You think you know a Christian that talks the talk and walks the walk? Well let me introduce you to my mom. There is none better.
I always thought the best way to describe a Christian is “Servant.” You should meet my mom. There is none better.
Do you know someone who is unselfish? Puts everyone above themselves? Would give you anything they had? I call her Wanda Faye, she's my mom, and trust me, There is none better.
I've known her 37 years. I've seen her faithfulness. I've gotten up at 5 in the morning and found her reading her bible. I've watched her prepare to teach bible studies. This isn't just a bias. I'm telling you. There is none better.
She's fighting cancer now. She even does that selflessly and gracefully. I can't tell you how many cards she has received. What does my mom do? She uses all the energy she has to try and write everyone back. Do I really need to do any more convincing? There is none better.
If you've been fortunate enough to meet my mom you know what I mean. If she's touched your hand, smiled that sweet smile, told you she loved you, told you she was praying for you, well consider yourself blessed…she meant every word. There is none better.
If the Lord does decide to take her home before we are ready. I can't say I blame him. He knows what I do. There is none better.
Please pray that Mom would be healed. Pray that the doctors would have wisdom and discernment in caring for my mom.
Pray for my dad, his heart is breaking.
God bless each and everyone person reading these words right now…
