Sunday Inspiration

Most of you know, I lost my Mom in 2009 to gastric cancer. I miss her terribly but I was telling my Dad that spring is especially hard.

Mom loved spring and she would have a million projects planned around the house for her and Dad to accomplish. She loved planting flowers and watching everything bloom around their yard.

I think I miss her this time of the year because of Easter and Mother’s day. Mother’s day is still hard for me.

I was looking at some of my books recently and I noticed I had a book on George Muller. I think I’ve quoted him several times on my blog, but I didn’t know I had a book about him.

Of course, it was Mom’s book. I know this because when I opened it up, there was a sticker on the inside cover. I had to smile, Mom is still reminding me to cultivate my relationship with Jesus.

I also smiled because of Mom having those stickers, she always had cute things like that, but I hadn’t seen these before.

I’m so thankful Mom is still reminding me to cultivate my relationship with Jesus. It’s the perfect message to begin Holy Week.

I heard this song this week, and I can’t get it out of my head so I thought I’d share it with you. In this crazy world we live in this is what matters, Just Give Me Jesus!


Have a blessed Sunday!

  1. Good morning!
    I lost my mom to cancer a few years ago too. Time does heal, but I related to your post this morning. We had always celebrated Mother’s Day @ our house w/ the whole family. But after she passed away, I told my husband I just couldn’t do it anymore b/c that day was just too difficult. I’m glad your mom had a strong faith. Our God is so good. Thank you for all that you share on this blog.

  2. My mom also passed from cancer (ovarian) in 2002, and my whole family misses her so much. We also take comfort in knowing she waits for us in heaven. My mom loved books as well, so your post today provided a happy memory for me…thank you! Especially at this time of the year, it is good to acknowledge how much God loves us. Happy Palm Sunday! 🙂

  3. Your mother must have been a wonderful person; I can tell it by the things you share about her. Like those book stickers–how clever are those?! 🙂 How blessed are WE that we get to benefit from one of her greatest accomplishments: YOU! Have a blessed Holy week.

  4. My mom is my best friend too Cyndi. Mother’s Day must be difficult for you. We have a party here for Mother’s Day. If you lived closer, we would have your family over for an afternoon of fellowship(: Susan

  5. just finished watching my pastor’s message on live streaming and then came on over to see your message and hear the beautiful spiritual song. thank you. I too lost my mother to cancer. she was a 17 yr breast cancer survivor and developed multiple myeloma for which there is no cure yet. developing an entirely different form of the dreaded cancer took her a bit surprise but she retained her faith and humor. Thank you for your daily encouragements.

  6. What a nice surprise for you to find this book with the special note from your Mom! Mine is gone as well. Mother’s day and Christmas as the two worst times for me.

  7. Cyndi,
    Thanks so much for your words today. They were just what I needed. We said goodbye yesterday to a dear church friend that had served The Lord for a grand 94 years and then woke this morning to another call Home for my husband’s uncle. Both of these men we strong Christains, that set an example for Greg and I as we grew in our faith and shared that faith with our children. They both will be missed, but they are with Jesus now and rejoicing in Heaven.

  8. Cyndi, thank you for sharing. We just laid my 92 year old grandmother to rest on Friday and I know Mothers Day will be especially hard on my dad. We know she was welcomed into heaven with open arms by Dad’s three brothers and what a joyous reunion they are having! It’s still difficult for those left behind. We just have to keep reminding ourselves of the wonderful memories we have and how happy our loved ones are in their heavenly home! Bless you this day and those going forward as you cherish the sweet memories of your mom.

  9. I love this! What a beautiful reminder of your mother. Now I want to leave something inside of my favorite books for my children to find some day.

  10. Jodi I’m so sorry for your loss, I certainly understand the pain you feel.

  11. Susan I’m sorry for your loss, but I agree, I’m so thankful they’re waiting for us in heaven. It will be a glorious reunion!
