Happy Mothers Day

NOTE: Please keep our dear Pilgrim Pal Susan Bunts in your prayers today. As we celebrate Mothers Day please keep in mind that Susan's mom passed away on April 29th and Susan will be sensing her loss to an even greater extent today. THANKS, PALS!

56 years ago my mother led me to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. She is still going strong, loving the Lord, praying for others and writing letters of encouragement as she has done for years.

Last Monday (May 5th) would have been dad's 86th birthday. Tomorrow (May 12th) would have been mom & dad's 64th wedding anniversary. It will be 16 years on May 21st since dad was called "home" after battling cancer.

So...May is quite a month for mom. We pause today to thank her for her life and testimony and pray that God will give her many more years of fruitful service for Him.


"Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate." - Proverbs 31:28-31 (NIV)

Pilgrim, Thank you for mentioning to keep Miss Bunts in prayer...I prayed especially for her and Arlene's daughter Amber this morning, and I was hoping someone would post a reminder on Pals!

Okay, now I turned up the volume and hear the same song on Pals...what is this song? I just hope you don't eat up my bandwidth with it ;) We are having a hard time staying below the 2gb that our basic Sympatico plan gives us, without going over it and paying 7.50 extra! We've eliminated almost all youtube watching, no streaming music/radio, hardly any downloading (just my HP lessons), and we still managed to use 2.02gb last month...thank God they skipped the fee since we barely went over.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms on Pals! We had a great day today with my grandma and our Mommy.

Love and Prayers,

Happy Mother's Day to all.

David, this month of May is truly a month of precious memories for her (and for you). Hope her day was blessed in every way.

Praying for Susan and also a dear close friend of mine whose mother was buried just yesterday.

Thanks LPP for leaving the sweet note at my blog earlier. My prayers continue for your dad and family.

Praying for Susan, especially this week as she deals with memories.
