the ponderings of a mother

These are the ponderings of a mother in love with her children, both in my arms and in the grave. Some of these ponderings are quite emotional, some are funny, others contemplative and spiritual. All are sincere. May these writings bless you in many ways and bring you closer to the one, true God and Redeemer of all things.

I found this sermon on the internet yesterday. I had never heard it before, preached by the pastor of Church of the Resurrection out in D.C., not the one we attend. He heard of Jonan's story last year and asked us if he could use his story in his sermon on suffering. We were in between period of Jonan's life...and his New Life quickly approaching. We said sure, though we had never met, and still have not. I found the sermon, over a year later and listened. He is a great teacher and parses out faith in challenging times very well using the Gospel of Luke. He tells Jonan's story. It is about 37 minutes long, so listen when you have the time to enjoy and be transformed by all of it.   Listen Here

Also, by Elsa in this video. I had put her in her crib under the mobile while I was scrubbing the bathroom the other day. I heard all sorts of noise coming from the room so I grabbed the camera and snuck on in...She was enjoying the company of the frog when I tried to start up the mobile...
