Today was an interesting first Mother’s Day without Jeseca. I recall that Everen gave his heart to Jesus on Mother’s Day three years ago. It was a moment Jeseca treasured in her heart for the rest of her life. She would have treasured today, as well, as Christian got up in front of his Sunday School classmates and led a worship song with his guitar. Alright, that’s a stretch. . . he was supposed to lead worship and sing “Awesome God” but experienced a bit of stage fright. The result was a slow acoustic ballad without words. So funny.
Later we visited the grave site and left a couple of carnations we got from Souplantation’s breakfast buffet. We were there just long enough to note that this was the first Mother’s Day without Mom, and then said a prayer together. There must be a reason for it all. Maybe the boys will form a band and tell the world how God drastically changed their lives one crazy day in the summer of 2007……the day He required them to eat their Dad’s cooking for the next several years.
