Today finds me completely overwhelmed with the most inexplicable happiness. What it’s from exactly, I couldn’t say—life is just so sweet right now. I am so blessed above and beyond what I ever expected.
I looked at my momma today...such an incandescent knowledge and love rests in her being. What did I do to deserve her? How did I end up being the daughter of someone so incredibly good? How did God know that everything I need in a mother lay in that beautiful, spunky, courageous, faithful, loving, and Godly woman who birthed me?
My aspirations are born from my momma’s giant cheesy grins. My inspiration is revived every time she encourages me…every time she teaches me…every time she tells me she loves me. My passions are reborn in every reoccurring conversation we share. My heart is enriched when I look into her eyes. Those eyes are so special—They’ve looked at me sympathetically when I was sick, they’ve held the tears that spilled for me, they’ve witnessed a thousand sunrises and sunsets with me, they’ve read God’s words countless times...why did God give those eyes such a love for me?
I’m on my knees, humbled before you today, Lord. You’ve given me so much, and yet You receive almost nothing in return. Give me the ability to give You your heart’s desire…a soul yearning for your touch…a breath breathed for your glory…a heart ready to rest in Your hands…Lord, help me never to take for granted the amazing blessings You’ve given to me. I surrender myself to You Lord. Take me and make me what you will. I love you.
