    Sometimes when we pray we don't always get an
    answer right away

    we humble ourselves before out Father in heaven
    confess and repent for our sins

    and pray for healing of torn and broken relationships

    for some time I prayed for God to lay His hands on
    my mother and to heal her from any past/present bondages
    I also prayed the same for myself

    I didn't think that HE would

    time passed and the spirit of doubt
    entered my house

    But on my mom's day of birth
    March 25th, 2002
    I again made another attempt at

    New Beginnings and Second Chances

    and HE did just what HE said...

    God brought us together on her 53rd birthday!! I made her candles (pink to match her decorum) decorated a box with afrikan fabric and raffia and took it to her job with a card.

    For those close to me...you may recall my last visit to her job...
    she told me to stay out of her business and stay out of her life

    When I walked into the office, she was in the middle of a call
    I waited patiently but nervously. She was her happy bubbly self
    talking to a client on the phone.

    When she hung up, she got up out of her seat and embraced me in a loving hug. While equally returning the love I told her I missed her.

    Her rebuddle: "No you didn't cause if you did you would've called"
    Then she laughed and I smiled!!

    We left together and went to her new place, picked up my 5 year old nephew whom I haven't seen in months and we had dinner together.

    I helped her straighten her place and she took me home.
    After seeing my new place she told me I was doing well and she gave me her phone number.

    She also wants me to make her some pillows!!!!!

    So, for all those non believers...God does answer prayers. He may not answer when WE WANT but HE's ALWAYS on time!!!

    I love you MOM
    I love you Father in Heaven

    truth be told... when we ask God to take control ~ we need to hold on tight; there'll be many bumps along the way for the perfecting of our characters....

    Count it all joy!

    Thank you

    now this is a beautiful testimony...
    He is right on time
    He loves us more than we can ever know
    and no matter what
    nothing can sever a mother's love for her child...
    keep prayin!
