Happy Birthday Momma










75 years ago today, God blessed the world with a beautiful baby girl named Opal. Thirty years later, God blessed me, by making Opal my momma. She was a precious gift in my life for 42 years. Happy Birthday Momma, I love you so very much. I know heaven is having a big party for you today, enjoy your day. I miss you more every day that passes, but we will be back together one day. Sending you great big Birthday hugs and kisses, and all of my love forever. I love you momma, I love you.

I'm going to pray for you right now! I still have my mom on this earth, although she lives overseas. I miss her so much most days, but I can't imagine how much you must miss your mom. I hope this day goes by smoothly for you.

Denise,

Oh how I know how much you love and miss your sweet mom. I remember you mentioning she was your best friend. I know she is celebrating in heaven. And today she is celebrated and remembered here on earth too. I'm sending you my hugs and prayers. Thank you, God, for blessing Denise with a such a precious mom.

Denise, May the God of all comfort fill you with his love this day as you remember your mom's birthday.

Love you, sister in the Lord!

Tears here. So beautiful. You just fulfilled Proverbs 31 in rising up to call your mother blessed and blessed us all in the process.

I will keep you in my prayers as you miss your Momma tonight! I lost my dad and my oldest sister and I know how hard it is. We miss them everyday, especially on their birthday! This was such a sweet post!
