One very valuable thing my Mother taught me and reinforced, was to honor yourself, speak your truth and always be good to yourself. When I was overloaded with burdens, tasks and the happenstances of life, she would remind me that ONLY I could edit, amend and manage my ‘to do’ list. She always felt that my ambitions overextended most any ones capacity, LOL I have truly learned to slow down and take it easier on myself, and life has surely thrown things at me that demanded it.
Yesterday was a very difficult day, acknowledging Mothers day and not being able to spoil her, talk with her or hug her. A day doesn’t go by where I don’t think of her, miss her and honor her many gifts of love and sacrifice.
Taking a cue from how I am feeling, I am allowing myself a day to recuperate. The Lord tells us that we are to be glad and rejoice in the day. Today I will do exactly that. Every moment is a gift. Joy comes in the morning and I cant help but try to apply that to the “mourning” as well. For me its a quest to remain thankful, happy and fulfilled.
Be back next week, God willing, with more messages of encouragement from our Lord!
Have a Blessed week!
Psalm 30:5 For his anger endures but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
