I only have a few minutes so this will have to be short, and I am not sure I know how to be, haha.  But I am sitting here beside my sweet mama as she takes a quick nap in her recliner.  We enjoyed a nice lunch out together and some sweet conversation as well.  How grateful I am that she continues to improve, though things that never stressed her in the past stress her so now.  It made me think that as the older we grow the less tolerence we seem to have for some things, and the quicker we tire.   I remember my precious grandma being the way my mom has now become and I've no doubt that will one day be me as well if I grow that old Lord willing.  To everything there is a season. 

This morning as I was browsing on Facebook I came across my daughter's page and she had wrote this quote...

Christianity, if false, is of no importance and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” (CS Lewis).

I need to repeat this to myself when I start thinking and living like it is moderately important... so pretty much every day.

I thought that was a pretty good thought for the day....Don't you?


  1. Hi Debbie,
    I have been a stranger to blogging lately and I couldn't come back at a better time. So, so true.

    I have my mom living with me now and I see in her what I did in my grandma years ago, and as you say where we will be someday (God willing).
    Patience is what I need, and to remind myself to count me blessings, since I have so many in my life. Enjoy your day and your mom.
    Love Maryrose

  2. Very good thoughts. Have a lovely time with your dear Mom.

  3. So lovely to think beautiful things while you're looking after your mother. I hope her health improves!

    Thanks for your comments on my daughter's health!

  4. What a precious time you had with your mom...I love the way you reflect on things as they come across your path. Thought provoking! I love CS Lewis' quotes/writings. That's awesome that your daughter posted that in her account. I pray that it will minister to others who still don't know what true Christianity is.

    God bless you sister and have a great rest of the week.

  5. Great quote, Mel. I have never read a lot of CS Lewis (like an entire book) but I always love his quotes. Maybe a book is in order??!:)

    I hope your day was sweet with your mom - and you are looking forward to a great (thankful) Thursday!!

    Hugs friend, Jennifer

  6. Glad to hear that your Mom just keeps improving!!

    Very good thought for the day! Very exciting too that your daughter is trying for her first baby! Hope you have a great weekend Debbie!

  7. Oh and yes, still on for the 5th! I'm excited!

  8. Yes a wonderful thought. Enjoy your time with your mom...I guess aging changes us all and we all need to remember that...thanks for the reminder since my mother-in-law, age 95, will be here with us next week.
    Thanks for the encouraging words you gave me brought me to tears, and was a confirmation of what I know in my heart!!

  9. Debbie,
    Your sweet words about your dear Mama are so God-honoring. How blessed you are to enjoy these sweet times with her. My Mom is miles away, and I would love to enjoy a lunch date with her and watch her snooze in a chair. :)

  10. Loved reading your thoughts tonight, Debbie, I can just see you sitting beside your mother as she naps, a beautiful mother- daughter picture. I am so glad she is doing well.
    The quote is so true! and much to think about too.

    I read your woman's daybook, and just savored every word, I relate so much to the things you write about.
    Much love,

  11. No middle road with God. He can't be moderately important. He either is the lover of your soul or He isn't and other things/people are. Love this quote. Thank you for sharing it!

  12. Hi Debbie, thanks for visiting my blog and joining. I returned the favor. I'm sitting here drinking my coffee, reading all the things you're thankful for, looking at the darling pictures of your grandbabies. I am so glad to meet you. I can tell from your writing that you're a friend of God. That really blesses my heart! I'm looking forward to getting to know you...


  13. beautiful quote...thanks for sharing with us... Blessings,


I am so glad that you would take the time to comment on my thoughts and feelings, it is such a blessing to me!
