The font in the image above is called Windsong – seemed appropriate because that was my mom’s favorite perfume. The yellow rose is symbolic of her eternal home in heaven…and mine. If you don’t know the yellow rose story, please email me and I’ll be glad to share.
The scripture, Psalm 16.5-6, is a combination of the NKJV and the NLV, because I liked one part of each. Perhaps we can call this translation NKJVNLVSS. Because, well you know.
Last week’s Quietude post was centered on legacy. This week it is being referred to as inheritance.
When I hear the word inheritance, I think of money and wills and being left $omething. Our mother didn’t have anything to leave us! A few pieces of costume jewelry and less than a thousand dollars in her checking account. NO worldly goods. She stored up her treasures in heavenly places where moths and robbers can’t get it!
Terry M Chamberlain has been within the gates almost five years – there are days her memory doesn’t even cast a shadow over me and there are other days I want to pick up the phone just.one.more.time.
I don’t want to glamorize my mother – she was a catbird and at times a booger of a stubborn woman. She excelled in prayer.
Prayer is her Legacy.
Jesus Christ is our Inheritance.
I’d say we’re blessed!
The quiet hour of prayer is one of the most favorable opportunities He has in which to speak to us seriously. In quietude and solitude before the face of God our souls can hear better than at any other time. O.Hallesby
When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble? Job 34.29
