Happy 93rd Birthday to our dear mother!

Today is a special day for our family. When most of you read this I will be on my way to visit mom and dad over in Louisiana. Dad was released from the hospital yesterday with some pretty grim findings regarding his deteriorating back situation. Mom is supposed to be released this morning. Jimmy and I are getting ready to drive over there for this special occasion. It is Wednesday, May 3, 2017. It is mom's 93rd birthday.

In a prayer attributed to Moses, he had this to say about aging, "The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years, Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away." (Psalm 90:10) This means we are unbelievably blessed from above to be able to honor our dear mother, on this, the 93rd anniversary of her birth. As many have said, her life story is book worthy with all that she has dealt with and endured. However, she, by the grace of God is still hanging in there and we as a family rise to recognize our mom and to thank God for her and all she has done for us all throughout her 93-year sojourn. Happy Birthday to our dear mother and may God provide. Amen.
