Mom has been retired from government service for years; now she volunteers as an administrator at “Showers” the church, working diligently on her own ministry efforts, and writing books. Yes, she likes to write too J, it’s no surprise that I enjoy writing now.
A few of her books can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble:
Master the WORD of the MASTER
Good News Daily
The TEXT Book (A-Z Salvation)
Biblical Texting - A Word From God – AS IS
Usually when I come to visit Mom, she knows that I am coming, so she will have a little “To-Do” list waiting for me on the refrigerator. Since this visit was a surprise, there was no list, so I spent most of the day helping her with whatever she needed. I did take the opportunity to go and visit my Pops’ gravesite; he went to be with the Lord in September of 1996.

Later in the afternoon, we took a trip over to Olive Garden for a late lunch; we ran into one of the church members from “Showers” that works there welcoming and seating the patrons.

Mom thought of a couple other things that I could help her with around the house, so I made a trip over to Lowe’s to pick up a few supplies. I was wearing my “God’s Got This” T-shirt, which often spawns a conversation with people. I had the opportunity to share of God’s goodness in Lowe’s, affirming that God has it all in control; then headed back to finish my tasks at Mom’s house.
It was starting to get a little late for Mom, so I checked to see what time we needed to be ready in the morning. She was heading back to work, and we were continuing our travels (8 a.m. it was). Mom went to bed; we stayed up a while longer, relaxing, and watching TV until the pillow started calling our name …
