Happy Birthday!

I am so thankful to have my Mother in my life! Our family spent a weekend at the beach on the Oregon Pacific Coast honoring Mom's special day. There were 51 of us who attended...the youngest was three weeks old!

My Mom has had such a godly influence in my life. She was dedicated to instilling the things of God in all her children's lives. I am so very grateful to have been blessed with my Mother's love for God!

Her Love for Family
Her Love for Christian Values
Her Love for God's Word
Her Love of Laughter
Her Love for the Ocean
Her Love of Hymns
Her Love of Reading
Her Love of History
Her Love of Oregon
Her Love for Her Country
Her Love of Flowers
Her love of the Color Pink

Not a day passes that I don't thank God for my Mom!

  With those who keep His covenant...

Happy Birthday to your Mam and I am glad you all had such a lovely celebration. It is so special to see all the generations in a family together. It shows us the true meaning of life. I love the idea of a large extended family but alas our family isn't really up for it, Lily. xxx

Darling Caryolnn, Your mother sounds so wonderful! I read more about her in your comment on sweet Heather's blog. She truly is an a amazing lady and has lived a very God-honoring life! What a beautiful, godly inspiration she is! I am happy that so many of you were able to meet for her 90th birthday to celebrate her life! Please wish her a very Happy Birthday from me and give her my love! Dearest, you are so much like your mother! You are loving, kind, giving and a very godly woman. I am so blessed to have you in my life. It is wonderful how your mother's example and love for the Lord has touched so many within her own family and outside of it! Thank you for sharing this and the sweet photos of her too! Love you, Paula xo
