Welcome to the merry month of May, my very favorite month of the year! Why, you ask? Well I suppose because I was born in May. Of course,May brings Mother’s day when we honor our mothers, grandmothers, our daughters who are mothers, and mothers everywhere! Sadly some of our mothers have been called home by God, so we no longer can celebrate the day with them; however we still can honor them in our hearts.
For those of us who live up north, May really shows us that Spring is here! The weather is warmer (usually) and the trees are budding, the flowers are starting to bloom. We begin to catch up with our neighbors in the southern states who are already enjoying the blessings of Spring.
We, of course, cannot forget that May is the month in which we honor our fallen soldiers who gave the ultimate gift for our freedom and our veterans of many wars who survived the wars but have now been called home to be with our Lord. May we never forget them! May we honor them every day of our lives, not just on Memorial Day!
So, in short, welcome to the beautiful month of May! Enjoy all the gifts and blessings God shows us in this beautiful month and in all the other days as well!
Nicely said OM! Probably why I don’t write much any more though—I fracture too many words or more likely the words will not come to me very much.
wonderful words! Thank you Melissa, for sharing your thoughts.
Beautiful poem to share on this Easter weekend! Thank you for sharing it Andy.
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,. Deuteronomy 7:9 ESV
I found this verse in my email this morning; the verse of the day from Bible Gateway, which I receive every morning to begin my day. What a wonderful verse to start my day with a smile, being reminded of God’s never ending love for all of us. It is the best love ever! To know that no matter what happens in my life and the lives of all of us who believe in Him is so very comforting. We are never alone!
Today, as I look out my window, I see beautiful sunshine, warmer weather, clear skies; another great gift from God! I hope and pray that all of you see the love of God pouring out on you today!
