I do visit the list of blogs I ‘follow’ on Blogger. Every once in a while I have to make a change to the list. The change this week as the loss of “Morning Cuppa With Glenys” for her site is no longer reachable. That concerns me, because of her health, so I’ve put out feelers to see how Glenys may be.
I have not removed my sister-in-law’s listing, The Groves and Their Branches. She posted a dozen times this summer before her heart surgery and the story of her miracles will reach others. She wrote, “This is my life and I am opening it up to you,” and she did. When she went home to be with our Lord this last October, I decided to leave the link, for what she wrote may be the most important thing someone reads. She lived her life knowing her Lord provided for her in the past, and that He always will provide for her.
Without knowing Pascal's Wager, she lived it and wrote it for her obituary: “I would rather live my life believing there is a God and die to find out there isn’t. Than to live my life believing there isn’t a God and die to find out there is.”
I’ve also added a blog to the list, The Act of Jochebed, pictured above (don’t you just love those eyes!!) and written by a real Mum in Nairobi, Kenya. I enjoyed the first of her blogs that I read, My Boss. Children never cease to amaze us, do they?
This Mum loves our Lord, as I do. “My experiences, my ups and downs, but most of all, share the love of Christ to Mums and Mums to be! I love the Lord dearly!” It warms my heart to find our Lord actively sought by mothers around our world, teaching as commanded:
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (Deuteronomy 6:4-7 KJV)
Christ summed this when He was asked which is the great commandment:
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22:37-40 KJV)
If we can live those two commandments, the remainder will fall in place.
It is a blessing to me, though I lose loved ones along the way, to meet younger generations, scattered around this beautiful world, teaching their children our Lord’s love and commandments. Their living the words today provide a continuous path of examples to continue the journey as the older generation goes home.
May God bless the mothers who teach their children.
