Easy to Honour


Today I simply want to honour my parents. They are a gift and I am so thankful for who they are and mostly for the Godly heritage they have instilled in me. They raised me to know and fear the Lord. To love God and serve Him and in that serve others and put them first. They did that while raising four children and along the way inspiring countless family members and friends to do the same, not for their glory but to the glory of God.
Psalm 37:28 says so beautifully, "The Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever."
Mom and Dad, you are faithful, He will not forsake you and you will be protected forever. Thank you for allowing me to see what life is really all about. A life of serving God and serving others (James 1:27). Now it is my turn to live life as you did for my children, your grandchildren. I will do it to the best of my abilities that God has given me. Thank goodness God gave me Duncan, maybe I can actually accomplish the great task of parenting!!
Tonight, I want you to know how much I love you both. You are an example of Christ's love. I have always seen that. Thank you for walking with me in my life (all the up and down valleys and mountains) and praying me through it. Without your prayers, where would I be? God hears them all!
Thank you....
love,
Number three - Sandee Glo
