|Not enough Words, can express the Love and Appreciation I feel for my dear parents.
However, I will take time to express how much I Love them both. My dear Dad, and
My dear Mom have given me the wonderful gift of life. And with that gift, I've strived
To do things right. Although sometimes, I may need to say a prayer or two, for my
imperfections… I rest assured by the teachings that have been proven true, that God will
Definitely carry me through. My parents have been a warmth kind of love to me, and
real comforters for me the duration of my entire life. I owe them so much, and it just
seems I can’t do ‘enough’ to express just how much I love them.
My dear Dad has shown me how important it is to keep ourselves in God’s Love… He’s
shown me how to carry myself and how I do this can be a reflection on ‘how’ well I was
raised… and for that, I’ve shrived to be very cautious on how I carry myself, in public
places, and how I speak to individuals… (And this has been a task just about my entire
life, because I am very opinionated ‘smile’) My Daddy… He’s given me that sense of
protection from my Youth to my Teen years, and as an Adult, he’s shown me that he
can also be a protector right now, when I need him. He’s been there in my time of
need, and for that, I love him beyond words… Thank you Daddy, for being ‘everything’
that a true (Father/Husband/Brother & Spiritual Brother/Uncle/Cousin/--N-Law), should
be… to all seven of your Children, and the Family/Spiritual Family. Our Mother has
surely been blessed with you in her life as her Husband and ‘all’ Seven of us, your
Children, your 23 Grand-Children, and 13 Great-Grand children. I love you Daddy!
My dear Mom has shown me how to be a ‘Girl’, ‘a Lady’, and a ‘Woman’. She’s been
here for me since my beginning. Her Love has shaped my heart in many ways…
however I will express the deepest expressions for the way she’s loves me! She's been
with me through all my up’s and my downs. With my health as a baby, into adulthood,
my mother has always accompanied me in ‘important’ matters… to the doctor… just
because. My memories and my future she will be… always!!!! I love her for teaching
‘me’ how to be a 'good' Wife and a 'good' Mother. She’s a caring person for not only
myself, but she gives unquestionable love to all three of my children. She was there for
me when I lost my first, second, and third child… and helped me thoroughly with my
4th, 5th, and 6th child, and I give major credit for them surviving… To first, Jehovah
God, and my dear Mother, for making sure that I had ‘no’ stress, and I was able to carry
the life within’ me to the duration of a healthy birth. I thank you Ma, more than you
could ever imagine. You have been a loving asset to not only me, but all your 7
Children, and I love you endlessly.
My dear parents have known one another for 72 years… and have been married
faithfully for 57 years. They both played with toys and worked together since they met
at the age of 5 years old. Through this longevity of friendship and marriage, it truly has
inspired me to seek to have this same longevity in my marriage. What wonderful gems
they have been in inspiration, motivation, and encouragement for me, and others within
our Unity Congregation, in holding faithful to there Marriage Vows! I would like to share
these scriptures that my dear parents hold dear to there hearts, and have been a
protection for them since they both dedicated there life to Jehovah in baptism in the
early 60’s. Thank you Ma and Daddy for giving me the gift of life… twice, meaning, I
have the chance to live ‘forever’ on a Paradise Earth because of you teaching me the
Truth about our future, and giving me a Hope… through Jehovah’s Kingdom! I love you
|Shared Scriptures inspires my Parents to have a
22 And Jehovah God proceeded to build the rib that he had taken from the man into a
woman and to bring her to the man.
23 Then the man said: “This is at last bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh. This one will be called Woman, Because from man this one was
taken.”24 That is why a man will leave his father and his mother and he must stick to his
wife and they must become one flesh.
28 In this way husbands ought to be loving their wives as their own bodies. He who
loves his wife loves himself, 29 for no man ever hated his own flesh; but he feeds and
cherishes it, as the Christ also does the congregation, 30 because we are members of
33 Nevertheless, also, let each one of YOU individually so love his wife as he does
himself; on the other hand, the wife should have deep respect for her husband.
4 Let marriage be honorable among all, and the marriage bed be without defilement, for
God will judge fornicators and adulterers.
And this last scripture is a reflection on my parents giving me the time and attention as a
child… teaching me the right principles that carry me through ‘today’.
6 Train up a boy (also can refer to girl) according to the way for him; even when he
grows old he will not turn aside from it.
