I had lost parents, a brother, my husband and step-father by the time I was 29 years of age. When I tell you; that things do not have to be as well as they are in your life; just take my word. I wrote this on Mother’s Day 2007.Thank you Mama!Mother’s are about Love. He chose you!We can’t think of Mother’s without thibking of Mary the Mother of Jesus and all she had to go through; she pondered the things about Jesus in her heart, as so many of us Mother’s do.The heart of a Mother Ahhhh!The Love of Jesus combined with a Mother’s Love-Matchless.He chose you to be my Mother. Thank you Mama.I truly thank God for you mama.God chose you to be my mama; from the foundation of the World. He knew you did not want another child.Thank you mama. He knew you were tired.Thank you Mama. I was your 6th and last child. Thank you Mama. You had just had a son, 11 months before I was born.Thank you Mama. God chose you to be my Mother. He is Alpha and Omega.He knew the end before the beginning. He chose you to be my Mother. Thank you Mama.He knew what you were going through. Thank you Mama. He knew; you couldn’t tell me you loved me.Thank you Mama. And because you didn’t; He knew that I would choose to tell mine; that I loved them.That is why; I readily give sincere hugs.Thank you Mama. He knew you didn’t want to encourage me.That is why I seek to to hold and encourage those that are hurting and may be suffering fron low-self esteem. Thank you Mama. He knew yiu would take me to church. Thank you Mama. He knew; that you would not believe That I would even finish High school.

Thank you Mama. Though you went on to be with the Lord, I say that because you evidently knew the Lord was getting ready to take you home. You thanked me and told me you appreciated me two days before you died and 2 days before my 29th Birthday. I truly Love you Mama. I know that you truly loved me; because when we found the Bible that you carried with you alk the time.The only picture you had in there was a picture of my family and I.I understand the words you could not speak, the hugs you could not give, the comfort that I never experienced from my Mother. Because you took me to church and the church got in me and then I fell in LOVE with the Lord.For the first time in my life; at the age of 49 from my heart.Mama I thank God for you.Love Barbara. I am pleading; with you.Regardless; of how you may feel you were raised; let it go; give it to JesusBarbara’s philosophy; get Better; not bitter.My Mother, was tired; I am Thankful; she did not abort me. I learned things; in this environment; that I would make otherwised learned. My Mother; was an Usher as long as I can remember. I have always been told that people remember her smile. Incidently; people say ” I look just like her! I am honoured. Thank you Mama.I am so proud of my Sons and Daughters. My Grandchildren; are my delight. All 15 of them.
Speak A Blessing
Numbers 6:22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Numbers 6:23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
Numbers 6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Numbers 6:25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Numbers 6:26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Numbers 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.
I was looking into; the Word of God; to see how the people; were Blessed?
He spoke the Blessings; into the people’s lives.
I am not Jesus; He did leave me with a voice and a word.
BE A BLESSING SOMEHOW.
to everyone I meet; God has been so wonderful to me.
I am not rich. I tell my Testimony; where ever I go.
We All have a Testimony.
Stop and think of what God has done; just for you.
I have some expired Missionary license.
I am so happy; God has kept me,
He has kept my mind, He has kept the desire in my Heart to serve Him.
He did not let; my love and desire to please Him; expire.
LORD; I love YOU more NOW; than in the beginning.
Lord; I humbly; bow at your feet.
Thank you; Lord, for loving me and keeping me♡
Lord; lead guide and direct me; how to leave a blessing; in the lives, you allow me to touch.
Let them remember; the YOU in ME.
LORD; I ask that YOU BLESS every one that reads this.
I ask that you would touch and heal; sick bodies, sick minds and sin-sick souls.
I ask that YOU; would mend the broken hearts and families.
Heal as only you can.
Lord; please open our Spiritually-Blinded eyes, please soften Harden hearts.
Help us to forgive ourselves; as well as one another.
I ask; in Jesus Christ; precious Name.
Take the time; to get it right!
1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Get it right, with whomever you need to get it right with. Forgive whether someone ask for it or not. This is your Soul. Take responsibility. Matthew 6:12: And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:14: For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: Matthew 6:15: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Don’t wait on somebody else. I endeavor to keep the lines of communication open with God. Even when we have done what we need to do to be in right standing with God; someone will get offended. I can’t live for God; and not consider His people! Whether; I take the time. And acknowledge my Sister’s and Brother’s or not. It does not give me the right to ignore them. Does this mean that I beg and plead with you to accept me? No.Romans 12:18: If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. I do not intentionally hurt or offend anyone. Usually; I know when we have offended someone. Even if I “Think” that I’ve offended someone. I ask for their forgiveness. After; that there is no more that I can or should do in that circumstance. I let it go and let God handle it. Barbara; will not take matters in her own hands. God knows best. If they don’t want to talk to me, it is between them and God. Please don’t ever get outside of the Will of God to express to someone your apology. Please don’t allow someone to place a guilt trip on you. We each our responsible for what we receive. Have the right motive; repent from your heart. Let go and let God have the situation. Always, always, Pray about a situation before you go to someone. Do as the Lord instructs you to do. One of the most difficult things to do is nothing. Be obedient! Move when God says move. Isaiah 55:8: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. Isaiah 55:9: For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. We will be held accountable for our own actions. Just realize; when someone has been offended: Matthew 18:21: Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Matthew 18:21: Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Matthew 18:22: Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. That is our responsibility, no more!
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are; yet without sin.
Jesus knows; what we are going through.
I woke up this morning; singing: “I to be touched by Jesus”
It gave me an idea!
You know; I believe: we should be a blessing to every one we meet.
We should touch one another’s life with the Love of Jesus.
The White Rose.
I need to work out the rest of it.
I will; with the Lord’s help!
Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
I can’t explain; God’s goodness; to me.
I just receive it.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
I am satisfied; with whatever the LORD wants to do: in me; through me.
I use to be painfully shy.
Now; I count it a privilege and a Blessing to Be able to Thank God and to tell of His goodness me.
For ne: whether; it be age; illness; whatever.
Has worked miracles in and through me.
Just an example; I would sing in the choir; I was so nervous; I would be shaking so bad; you could see the micrphone shaking.
Sister Palmer; felt; if you have the ability to do it.
I STILL REMEMBER; THOSE SONGS!
Even in the midst of all that has happened to me.
Like I say; “But God”
Who wouln’t serve a God like mine.
I have attempted; to type this post 3 times.
I will tell it anyway.
I have had a stroke first.
3 Heart Attacks; the most recent in July of this year.
I can’t explain it.
God is good.
I Thank GOD.
I THANK GOD
I THANK GOD!
Psalms 23:1 The LORD ia my shepherd: I shall not want.
1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
1:Peter 5:11 To him be glory and dominion for ever. Amen.
When I think; of how Chist suffered and died for me.
I have no complaints.
Tear Stained Glasses
I began; writing in my teenage years.
Below; is one of my first poems!
I look at the world through; tear stained glasses.
Stained with the pain of a broken heart.
Stained with despair; because my children feel I am unfair.
Stained with depression, a feeling of worthlessness, of being on a road going no where.
Feeling; that there is not a one that would care! No there isn’t any one anywhere.
These glasses, that I wear, I sometimes try to take them off and try on a new pair, however; I can never seem to totally break or lose them.
This is depressing. I thank God; for delivering me.
Have you Received?
I believe; that most of us; are living, beneath our privileges.
Jesus; died for You and I.
So, that we can have these things: Salvation, abundant life, a prosperous life!
Salvation John 3:16 (Red) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:18 (Red) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 10:10 (Red) The theif cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abuntly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Zechariah 8:13 and it shall come to pass, as you were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing; fear not, but let your hands be strong.
As many years; as I heard that. I just took the time to read it!
How often; have we only heard a portion of a scripture?
This is why; I get my Bible before I print any scripture.
Now; I realize; I make mistakes.
I have tried; to get OVER my persectionism.
I am still; living in this earthly body.
I am yet capable of being Human.
In my; humaness; I make mistakes.
As Christians; we/I need to encourage one another.
We/I must walk in love; it is time out for judging and condemning, one another.
Being real, it was never a time for that.
Christ; disciples; must exercise Christ Discipline.
I had gone to the store yesterday. I was sharing my Testimony; the young lady; said ” You are a walking Testimony; yes I am. I thank God constantly. That alone stops me from doing some things. GOD HAS BEEN TOO GOOD TO ME.I DO MY BEST NOT TO WASTE TIME ON TRIVIAL MATTERS.
After; all these years; I am remembering what was said to me. When my Husband passed away.
Someone; was prophesying to me
I was at a church service; I remember; the gentleman, saying to me.
It as though; your Heart is missing a beat or skipping a beat.
Because; my Husband had died.
While in the hospital; recently. I was told my heart was skipping a beat.
My mind automatically went back to that moment.
After all these years and after every thing that has happened.
Why that moment.
It is interesting; what I remember.
It is interesting what I forget!
To Clarence Fisher Sr.
You are not forgotten.
We began; when I was 12 years of age.
It ceased; at his death in October 9, 1988.
Or did it?
We have 5 children together.
He did not; live to see any of our Grandchildren.
One of the Grandsons; stutter the way he did.
I think he would be amazed at our family. Now!
