Seventeen years ago this week my life was completely shaken! At 11 years of age, my mother went to meet her Savior face to face. So many memories from that week still flood my mind.
I still often wonder why… I know what Romans 8:28 says, and I completely trust in God’s plan. He gives, and He takes away. Theologically, my head comprehends it, but my heart still struggles to grasp it. I guess some things we won’t understand until we’re in heaven.
Although her time humanly speaking was brief, I am so thankful that God gave me such an incredible mother during those formidable years. Her love and her faith have without doubt shaped the person who I am today.
If your mother is still alive today, love her and appreciate the time God gives you with her.
