Remember When

Life takes us through many changes like the seasons of each year,
Some so unforgettable we sometimes shed a tear.
I remember when I was a little girl, it seem not long ago,
My mother would shelter me in her arms,
A feeling I thought I’d never outgrow.
Maybe I really haven’t because hidden inside of me,
There’s still that need to hold her,
Though our chances are few and far between.
We live our lives looking back on memories of the past,
Ones we often cherish, for time moves along so fast.
I remember my teenage years, rebellious as they were,
Though I’d made many mistakes I could always count on her.
Oh the times I’d hurt her with the hateful things I’d say,
I hope she knows how sorry I am and how much I love her today.
As children we don’t realize how words can break a heart,
Leave scars that last a lifetime and tear two lives apart.
Though forgiveness isn’t easy, we’ve found it through the years,
My mother and I are closer than ever,
Our love has washed away the tears.
So let me tell you that I love you mom, in this message that I send,
Though time is ever changing, I’ll always remember when.

Prayer Request & Scripture

SCRIPTURES OF THE WEEK  
Matthew 6: 25-27, 34
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much valuable then they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? … Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
