Happy Birthday Mom

by sandihester

For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.  Psalm 139:13-16

My Mom’s birthday was last Saturday, but I didn’t give her her present until last night, so I couldn’t post it until now.  I painted one of her favorite things – her grandson Aidan.  She was a little disappointed that I didn’t have a painting of her other favorite thing – her granddaughter Hannah… I’ll have to work on that :).  I almost didn’t give this painting to her because I wasn’t pleased at all with how it turned out, but my sister (the mother of Aidan and Hannah) loved the painting and thought I should give it to her. 

My Mom is very special to me and a GREAT mother!  She is so special to all of us.  She has a servant’s heart like Christ – she will out serve you any day and I mean that!  I wish I had more of that servanthood (is that a word?) in me.  I love you Mom – you are beautiful inside and out!
