In Memory of Mama

Today is my Mama's birthday. She would have been 83. I could say so much about her, but today I'll share this previous post:

Little Reminders ~ Simple Joys

This is a little bookmark my Mama had made quite some time ago from the looks of it. She was an avid reader of the Bible, Guidepost, Grace Livingston Hill books, and many, many other inspirational books. Once in a while she'd need a bookmark and make her own, just a simple piece of paper or ribbon, but always with a Bible verse or a wonderful quote. This is one that I found yesterday while looking through some of her things. I love little reminders like this, reminders of my Mama, and reminders of God's love.

Thanks for visiting today.

Take Care & God Bless,



p.s. Please check back later this evening for a wonderful Guest Blogger post. :)


  1. What a beautiful tribute - I love the bookmark your Mama used. It is a very clear reminder of Who we belong to.

  2. I'm so sorry your Mama is no longer here. That reminder is definitely one to cherish.

  3. how precious is that! she must have been a wonderful
    mother! i bet you can think of something amazing to
    do with that sacred piece of paper. :)

    thank you for your prayers for the missing young man.


  4. I love this post about your Mama! Mine has been gone for several years, and this past August I lost the Grandma who raised me. They both left bits of paper in books and in their Bibles with little notes, so I understand how precious that bookmark is to you. Thank you for sharing it!

  5. How blessed to have had such a mama. Mine was cut from the same cloth as yours. Even now, years later there are times when I'll think "I've got to call mom, she would love ... Oh. Right."

    A good mother truly follows her children all of their days:)
