My Beautiful Mother


I was able to visit my mother this past Tuesday in Fresno, California. We were eating a little Mexican food and my handsome father snapped this photograph. I don't get to see my mom much because she is so active in HER church that she rarely visits MY church. I LOVE that about my mother. She has always set the perfect example for me. As a young man I remember her sitting in church EVERY WEEKEND with a BIBLE in her lap, taking notes as dad preached. That visual has directed my life to keep the word of God a priority and to soak it in as much as possible. I'm sure she heard dad preach thousands of times, and each time she was like a sponge, carefully listening to the voice of God being taught by the Holy Spirit in truth and wisdom. I hope and pray that I have been that example to my children and to the Shepherd of the Hills Church. May we all continue to study, learn, memorize and apply the word of God. Thank you, mother, for being the "World's Greatest Mom". I love you!!! Dudley

Mom's are awesome, aren't they! It was great to have you back at the westside this week too, Dudley.
