A Tough Day

It's Mother's Day today...a tough day for me.  I lost my Mother unexpectedly almost 2 years ago.  It still hurts.  I remember all of the Mother's Days past, when I was younger...typically she'd get some flowers from us, maybe a hand-made really didn't matter though.  Anything we would give her was huge.  She was an amazing woman, and someone I still miss.  I have a part of my website devoted to her life (which you can see here ).

All of this rambling to simply say, it's a tough day today.  I shared a little about this in our church services this morning; and then, for special music, we sang this song called "Still."  If you're like me and having a tough day today for whatever reason, let the words to this song soothe your soul a little bit...but also, don't shy away from the pain, embrace it.  Let the memories flow and if tears come too, so be it.

"Still" (by Reuben Morgan) - You can hear/see this song by clicking here .

Hide me now
Under your wings
Cover me
within your mighty hand

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with you above the storm
Father you are king over the flood
I will be still and know you are God

Find rest my soul
In Christ alone
Know his power
In quietness and trust

I am blessed to have my mother to celebrate with this mothers day, but together we still grieve the sudden loss of my grandmother. We know she is in a better place and that some day we will see her again, but we grieve the sudden loss of her loving touches and faith and knowledge.You're never too old to want your mother, especial if she was such a strong example of Christs love for the family as my grandmother was.
