My nest is blessed…Saturday evening, I had the privilege to speak at and attend a Mother Daughter banquet at Grace Baptist Church in Anderson, Indiana, with a very special person. From the time that I can start remembering, this person has loved me, influenced me, trained me, and disciplined me.
I remember watching her as I grew up and seeing her trust God when circumstances were not pleasant. There was a point in this person’s life that she lost her father and her sister, and her brother, and even now is sacrificially caring for her elderly mother who has had a severe stroke.
She was uprooted many times to follow her husband as they served their Savior together. At one count, she and her husband moved 6 times in one year, with 5 little children in tow, just to follow the Lord’s path. She made a home out of anywhere we lived. God was always first.
She trusted her husband. Taught me to trust God, love my Savior, and love being a mom. I learned to cook, clean, work hard, organize, and save money through this very special lady.
She made my bed when I did not. She cleaned my clothes, fed and played with me, cried over my sorrows, and laughed with my joys.
This is the Godly women that I want to be like. This is the woman I call and talk to almost every day. This is the woman that is my very best girlfriend…
God reached down in love and rescued Cassandra from her sin at the age of 21: changing her life, purpose, and focus forever.
