Christmas without Mom

Twelve years ago my Mom died in Aug.,that  first Christmas season I was sick of  heart and in pain.One day alone in the house I was crying out to God concerning my Mommy,half praying half wailing.My eyes and hands lifted upwards.Somehow with out me knowing ,it turned into worship.There where my eyes landed  was one huge white wing.The feathers are hard to describe,large,layered and very white.I began crying with joy stunned that God did that for me.When it was gone I felt  at peace . In my spirit I heard Christ say"under my wings you shall take refuge".If this is your first christmas without a dear loved one.God cares and knows your pain.Your memories will stay the pain will fade. LOVE Denise

Hello new friend! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I love your faith and the teapot ornaments are just delightful. God will fill spots in your heart where there is deep pain, I know! God will also transform us into beautiful lights that shine his love into the darkness. I pray that peace washes over you in that special spot you have for your mom. Also, let your heart show in your decorating, I am sure the hubby will be happy if you are happy!
Squishy hugs,

Oh Denise, I'm sorry for your loss. I understand, since losing my Dad almost three years ago, and my mother the year before that.
Your vision is inspiring! God is truly awesome!

My mom was precious and sweet and a real mother goose for sure. She passed on April 1st. She would have taken joy in that! That was 18 years ago and it still stirs my heart missing her so much.
My friend said to me when mom passed...don't worry Jacqueline, she has just traveled through an open door and she is always with you.

my mom's passing not even two weeks, I feel like an emotional wreck. She lived with us for the past 9 1/2 years. YOur post is very comforting...thank you so much for posting this Denise.

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
