It has been 7 years since my Mom went home to Heaven following a 2 1/2 year battle with leukemia.
"When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again."
I do wish she'd been around longer to see her grandchildren grow. She would've been so pleased that we are on the mission field and adopting two boys.
But God in His providence has a reason for each event in our lives.
I'm thankful for the Mom God gave me.
"Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above."
