third year since
Jesus called Mom home
of baby’s breath
Published in TIME OF SINGING (Winter 2006/2007). Enola M. Borgh, my mother, lived on earth from 1917 – 2004. How she would love to know how much I am writing now–but I feel she does know. When I was helping to care for her, she always asked if I was writing. This was not pressure but rather reflected her concern for my time. There is a mystery, I feel, about God’s time for things, and I trust Him more and more. Mom died when I was 50 and now I am almost 59. I told her about some projects during her last illness, and she said, “That’s worthy.” This was an old-fashioned Biblical blessing, which I cherish.
My gratitude journal this morning is easy: a winter storm and we have not lost power.
