Best of Friends
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Me and my mom were best of friends where you found one you were sure to find the other. She would always buy something for her self and then buy me the same thing. If she was going to do some canning she would buy me a pot just like hers so that we could do it together. We would some times show up at places wearing identical clothes. (she dressed young for her age or at least that is what I tell my self) The point is when it came time for her to pass on to heaven my heart was very heavy, I had not just lost my mother but my best friend. I could not ever begin to think of how I was going to do this life without her. I was tired and weak from the past months of being at her side while she fought cancer. I did not think that I would make it. Time has passed and as I look back I know through it all it was not my strength that got me where I am today. I could have only been the strength of the Lord. I can now reflect on it and see God's presence in every situation. Weather we were crying together or I was just holding her hand waiting on the Lord to take her home. I know he was with me. I still miss my mom and always will. The Lord has blessed me in a way that I can carry on and know this is not the end. I will see her one day soon. In the mean time I will cook using both pots while remembering our good times together.
Father, your blessings are more than I could ever imagine. You are always there to pick me up and I thank you for that. Please continue to work in my life giving me strength and power when I need it. In Jesus name, Amen
