Thankful Thursday – Mom & Pop   9 comments

I wanted to participate today in Thankful Thursday to honor my mother and father.  I am so thankful for the joy and love they displayed in our home growing up.  I had the privilege of being brought up in a Christian home with parents who loved the Lord and wanted their children, grandchildren and generations forward to do the same. 

It was not an easy road for my parents. There were plenty of bumps and hazards along the way, yet they trusted and continue to trust the Lord of their highway.  They are in their mid eighties and are still serving and obeying the Lord with every breath they take.  I know when they reach the end of the road, Jesus will welcome them saying, “Well done, my good and faithful servants.” 

I want to be just like them…
