The Gift of My Mother Is of Heavenly Value

The mother in you is just the mother God knew I would need in life.

From the beginning things were not always perfect between us,

But God held grace for the young girl according to the word of God.

With all of the difficulties between us,

God allowed you to be the one to bring me to the first altar at which I knelt

From simply following my mom where she went.

Because of your desire to follow Christ,

At 8 years old my desire to follow my mother led me to hear of Jesus.

While God was meeting you and your needs at the altar,

He allowed a lady of the church we were visiting to meet me and mine for Him.

I gave my life to the greatest love I have ever known

Because you gave your life to the greatest love you had ever known.

I praise God that He had enough love to send us the greatest love

We all have ever known, who gave His life for us all.

Thank you for the greatest gift you have ever given me.

No money or materials in this world can ever be as valuable

As that piece of treasure I inherited from you.

Now I can pass it on to my children.

Praise God for your witness

My God Given Sister!

Some pray for a sister who will love them and help the through anything and everything.

Some pray for a sister who is strong enough to bear their burdens and willing to carry the load.

Some pray for a sister to laugh with and share all the joy in life.

Some pray for a sister who cries with them and holds them when all they can do is cry.

Some pray for a sister who is like a friend and feels God gave them one of His best.

Some pray for a sister who reminds them there will be no giving up because there is no reason to.

Some pray for a sister who will share the love of God with them because she has a love for God of her own.

Some pray for a sister to fight with or to fight over guys with.

Some pray for a sister just to be able to love and be loved by.

Twenty nine years ago God gave me life.

But before I could even conceive a prayer, God granted blessings He knew I would always need, love, and cherish all in the wonderful sister He gave me in you.

When He heard my unspoken prayers, He answered with His loving heart and granted His best.

I am so thankful Jesus died for you too.

I praise God for His gifts.

He gave me a great one in you, My God Given Sister!
