I must say, I did not expect to feel the conviction that I have felt in writing this to share with you. I have been a Christian I long time, and I know (and have taught) that it is a continual, growing process. But I didn't realize how I have drifted and have not been listening to God's voice. I now must spend some time in confession, reading all these scriptures, prayer and allowing God to help me get back on His path. I look forward to any of your comments and sharing's.

It was such a blessing that you added that personal comment at the end. I was actually wondering what your personal thoughts were pertaining to those entries. Good stuff, Mom. Know I pray for you every day and that I thank the Lord every day you are my Mom.
