Lift Her Up

One of my favorite songs is, You Raise Me Up by Celtic Woman, and when I hear it, I think of the wonderful mother God blessed me with. She raised me up with her prayers—all my life—and placed me on God’s shoulders.  She may not be perfect, but to me and God, she’s awesome and beautiful, and all her life she has shared a song of love and joy with the world around her. His spirit is within her, and she has produced much fruit, and so, I pray:

Mom's cloud quote

But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

Her Life Is A Song

My mom sang to me—she still does—and my desire is to share her songs with others. Funny thing is, Mom doesn’t think she can carry a tune. What she doesn’t seem to understand is the song she sings is her life. No, she’s not perfect, but she is the awesome and beautiful person God made her to be, and throughout her life she has shared her song with the world around her.

One of my favorite songs is, You Raise Me Up as sung by Celtic Woman, and each time I hear it I think of the wonderful mother God blessed me with. I think of the song her life is and in my heart I thank her for raising me. For you see, she didn’t just train me in the way I should go and help me to be who I am, she raised me up with her prayers—all my life—and placed me on God’s shoulders. There is no higher place and no place I’d rather be.

Thank you, Mom!zinnias-11-10-2016-quote

She Sings to Me

I was riding my exercise bike this morning, listening to one of my favorite CDs, and just looking around the room. My eyes fell upon a copy of my book, Be Still, and I gazed at it, thinking what a wonderful picture of Mom it is that adorns the cover of the book. As the song, You Raise Me Up (Celtic Woman), began to play, all sorts of thoughts rushed through my mind, and the following poem was written shortly thereafter. Read the rest of this entry »

She Raised Me Up

Christmas 2010, Ray and Mom came down to spend a few days with us—they almost always do—and it was, as usual, a wonderful time. It was made even more awesome by the fact I was able to give Mom a very special gift that year; Read the rest of this entry »
