Today is the anniversary of my Mom's death. I miss her so much! Maybe it wouldn't be so hard if one of the comic strips wasn't running the story of the Grandpa going through the same thing right now. The comic strip is, of course, “For Better or For Worse”. The link is on the right hand side.My Mom loved music and loved to sing. My sister tells a story (after my Mom lost her speech from the first stroke) about going to church with Mom and the tears in my Mom's eyes because she wasn't able to sing along. My Mom's favorite hymn was “Victory in Jesus”. That is a wonderful song, we sang it at her funeral. The last verse and the chorus go like this:
I heard about a mansion he has built for me in glory, And I heard about the street of gold beyond the crystal sea; About the angels singing, And the old redemption story, And some sweet day I'll sing up there The song of victory
chorus:O victory in Jesus, My Savior forever, He sought me and bo't me with His redeeming blood; He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him, He plunged me to victory, beneath the cleansing flood.
My Mom obeyed the Gospel a couple years after my Dad passed away. There is a lot of significance to that, because, you see, my Mom was afraid of water and she rose above that fear to be baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of her sins (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38). I am proud of my Mom. I know her “some sweet day” came 2 years ago today.
