It’s unbelievable to me that 2 years ago today my mom went to heaven to live with Jesus for eternity. On one hand it seems like just yesterday and on the other is seems like 50 years have passed! Reflecting back on that time, I realize just how VERY IMPORTANT my church family is to me. I know that God has given me strength and comfort in my sorrow and for that I am so thankful. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to go through a loss of a family member or friend and not have the support of a church family. The staff at COTHA was like brothers and sisters to me offering love, friendship and a much needed shoulder to cry on! We are like family here…. Doing life and loving on one another. Currently the sermon series is about “Parenting.”
As I listen to Darrel sharing the various types of parenting, I think back on how my parents raised my brother and me. I am SO thankful for all their love, support and guidance. I suppose it’s easy to think of them as angels now that they are gone. But truly, I think they were angels.
