A Beautiful Mother's Day
But I'll share my Mother's Day with you :-) We got up and went to church and received a message that I wasn't expecting. The pastor didn't speak, but it was a woman he invited to do the Mother's Day message. She spoke about identity in Christ, being free of your past, and what your purpose in God is. I was blessed, as I'm sure some other people were. When she spoke, I was moved because I know that the enemy is always attacking my identity and my past is brought up a lot. But thank God because in Him, I know I'm truly not who I used to be. God has brought me so far in my walk with Him, but I know He wants more from me and for me.
So, after church, my husband bought me a potted flower. It's a Marigold. We went home and cleaned up from the night before, 'cause we were up late, and my husband started up the grill. My god mom and her two teenagers (I love them!) came over and ate and spent time with us... I don't know, it may sound simple, but it was such a beautiful day to me because of time with family and because the joy and peace and fellowship of the Lord was all over it. Here are some more pics:
