As I grow in wisdom, I look back on the teachings my granny raised me with. I learned to live the life I speak about in front of you and when not in your presence. Because my granny always said “God” sees and hears everything you say or do. A few days ago while reading during my devotional time I read this by Brenda Gittens: “FAITH LIKE MAMA’S,” It made me think of my granny and how she raised me. She started out like this: As I reflect on my life, memories come of growing up in a family that imparted behavior and values that helped me greatly as I grew into a young woman. But I do admit I also messed up, yes the church girl! I was raised up around scriptures, song, prayer, ministry, and corporate gatherings of God’s people. At home my mother’s “life-light” Jesus Christ, shined brightly. In spite of her tears, disappointments, hurt and pain, the “life–light continued to shine through. I would wonder, “How does she do this?” Her faith was so profound and strong. One example was when she prayed, trusted, believed, and waited on God for thirty years for my father’s salvation. I actually saw this process happen. I did not know her faith was being passed down to me and I was being prepared for my faith as a young woman. One of my prayers was that God would save my daddy before I got married, and He did. It wasn’t my Mama but it was my granny, “HALLELUJAH.” Read (2 Timothy 1:5 NLT). HELLO MORENO VALLEY

We are speeding into the month of June and it is gardening time. I was reading about gardening, and the topic was “WHAT YOU LOVE THIS MONTH.” Since I grew up on a farm most of my life by June we were harvesting some of our plantings. Even though the weather has been a little different, I still manage to eat fresh food from my garden. I love being in my yard watering and watching the things I have planted, grow. It is nothing like washing a tomato and tasting the sweetness of it. Let us ask God to help us this year to have a great garden to share with our friends and neighbors. Remember you are your brother’s keeper, remember to pray for one another and do not forget to VOTE. For those that have a mother or someone that you look to as a MOTHER pray and call her often. BE BLESSED J.B.
