I’ve recently mentioned to you all about how I’m missing my Mom a little more than usual lately. I know partly it has to do with the upcoming holidays.
I think it also has to do with all the changes. This past year has been one of the most difficult for our family. I shared last year about God’s Faithfulness in our Struggles. The consequences of sin and mistakes still linger. I’ve needed her guidance. Mom always knew what to say and of course she’d be praying.
I also wish she could see her grandkids. They have all grown up so much! She would be so proud of each one of them.
She also has a great grandchild. Goodness gracious, how did that happen?? That makes me a grandmother. What??? Not possible!
Anyway, one of Mom’s prayers that she wrote over and over in prayer journals and in her Bibles was about Jonathan. Jonathan is my sister’s oldest son. She has 4 boys. Yep, that’s right 4 and they’re precious.
Jonathan has moderate hearing loss in both ears and wears hearing aids in both ears. I think it’s moderate to severe hearing loss. Oh how Mom worried over Jonathan. She begged God to heal him.
I know it’s not the worst thing in the world but Mom was afraid he wouldn’t talk. She worried he’d be made fun of and the list goes on.
Jonathan is able to talk and more than that, he has a beautiful singing voice and most importantly a heart for Jesus.
Mom knew before she passed away that Jonathan had a gift for singing, which we all feel is a miracle. Every time he sang anywhere Mom and Dad were there.
Jonathan even sang at Mom’s funeral. He was 10 and it was beautiful.
Today, I wanted to share this video that Jonathan recently did all by himself. Traci tried to tell me how he did it. Basically, he recorded himself singing outside four different times. He recorded himself singing on the computer and he downloaded the music.
Let’s just say it was A LOT of work. It’s really good for a 15 year old doing it all by himself. He’s singing Chris Tomlin’s song, Jesus, He loves me.
Let me end by saying what Mom would want me to say. Jesus loves us and he wants us to know Him!
Have a blessed Sunday friends!Pin It
