Today Tuesday June 22 2010 is...

My Mother's Birthday!

I often say,

explaining why I am so easily Canadian,

"I was born of a Canadian Mother"

but really there is something much greater to be said than this!

"I was born of a Christian Mother"

and I am so blessed.

My Mother still loves me today

and we talk on a very regular basis on the phone.

She still reminds me often of God

and of God's faithfulness,

challenging me to trust God

to not worry

to do things in God's strength,

not my own.

To seek God first...

My Mother is a beautiful flower in the garden that God

has created and founded me in.


My Mother's example of seeking God;
of patience
(she had me you know!)
and constant steadfastness in her love for all of her kids
of my Dad,
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
is something I hope to grow towards
and be worthy of.
So Many Years to My Mom!
