Hopefully the Best Birthday Ever!

I tried to post this picture the other day but it wouldn't post. This is the last picture taken of my mother. She has her trusty ratty ole backpack with her and is out in the sagebrush by a lake.

The day she passed away was her 81st birthday. I sat down that morning and wrote her this card.

Happy Birthday! We love you - get well - we miss your pacing, political rants, telling Bruce how to cook bacon, telling me you already watered the plants, and your cat wants you home. Love Candy and Bruce

My prayer for you on your birthday.

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places far above all principality and power and might and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

And He put all things under His feet.....

But God who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved) and raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus Eph. 1:16-22 2:4-7

I am compelled to share this with you. You are coming toward the end of your journey. I have prayed for 30 years that you enter salvation and the revelation of God's great kindness and love.

Her memorial service is Thursday so please continue to pray. I've got a hardhearted family when it comes to God. Thanks for all your prayers and kind words the last few days.

Through tears: Candy! You have a beautiful heart! God give you peace, strength, love, comfort and every good thing from above!

You wrote a beautiful card to your mother! I'm sure it touched her heart. I pray it did. The verses are beautiful. They are some of my favourites.

Continuing to pray and send love!
