Two Things

Two Things

First today is our National Day of Prayer. In Byrdstown we will gather on the high school lawn beneath the flag pole watch as our Honor Guard presents the Colors, give our allegiance to our flag and nation and be directed in prayer by a number of our citizens.

This takes place at 9:30 with the students who wish to attend sharing with us. A second service will be held on the Court House steps at 12:00 noon, our community will pray, we love our country and believe in our Heavenly Father.

We know that the answer to our future is held in the hands of God for His people who ask.

Second: Today marks the 39 anniversary of my mother’s death. It was a Thursday then just as today, we had enjoyed lunch together in Jackson, purchased a weed-eater for dad and some strawberries for mom along with a beautiful dress.

At a few minutes before six that afternoon she slipped out of the house at 246 South Lindsey Street to the home prepared for her by our Lord.

The house never smelled the same, the rooms never felt the same, the celebrations with the family were never the same, mom was not there.

I am now older than she was at her death all the family of 246 South Lindsey Street are gone except me they share the glory of Heaven now and in time I will join them.

Life has been good, better than I deserve, I am grateful.

Ivan
