Cast Up A Highway




Posted on May 10, 2020 at 5:35 AM



Dear Mother, you were an awesome Mom. Collecting memories from those long ago days makes me smile. I can picture the house we grew up in, and we kids always came and went thru the back door. From the landing we entered the choice was to go up to the kitchen or down to the laundry room. Mom was often found in one of these two places. We were greeted with hugs as we returned from school.


Memories ~



  • Mom would wrap our hair in rag curls and as she worked she would sing to us. She had a marvelous voice and once sang in an operetta. She would sing songs to us as she formed our long curls. Those were precious moments.

  • Every evening Mom would get ready for Dad to come home. She would get out of her housedress she’d worked in all day and put on prettier clothes to greet Dad.

  • When she and Dad went out for the evening, sometimes her nails were still wet and she’d hold them up in the air as she kissed us goodbye. She always smelled especially nice when they went out.

  • Mom always loved the Lord. She would go out once a week to teach about Jesus to kids in the public school. She also volunteered to work in a nursing home helping teach different crafts like painting and also pottery making to bring joy to those who stayed there.

  • Mom lived her love of God. She was a good disciplinarian with us kids, holding us to truth and obedience and always with love. We were free to play with the neighborhood kids and it was almost like a family. We even went to the ‘block rosary’ on Tuesday nights.

  • During Lent we would get up early and walk to church, receive communion, walk home, Mom made breakfast, and we walked to school. She taught us reverence for the Lord.

  • On Good Friday we would pick up Ginny ( the lady who helped Mom with laundry) and “make the steps”. It is a tradition where there is a long flight of stairs going from a lower street and climbing to the top street. We would pray on each step. When we got to the top we would go to the church there and they passed out ‘holy water' from Lourdes. Then we went to where they had breakfast.

  • I think our relationship grew even closer in preparing for my wedding. There are so many decisions to be made and plans to set in place. She made it “all about me’. It can be a time of stress, and there were some of those, but she was always present to smoothe situations out and make it a joyous occasion.

  • Seems there were many things Mom taught us as we grew up. These are just a few memories I treasure.

NOW  I lift up all Moms. . . No matter Your age nor your generation, the jobs of moms is not easy. God has gifted us with children, and that is a blessing and a challenge. From the time they arrive as wonderful miracles of God, our lives are full.

Psalm 139:13-16

13 You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside 
and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb.[a]  (”God places an eternal spirit inside the conceived child within the womb of a mother and covers that life, sends the child a guardian angel, and watches over him or her.)

14 I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! 
Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking.
It simply amazes me to think about it!
 How thoroughly you know me, Lord!

15 You even formed every bone in my body
 when You created me in the secret place,
carefully, skillfully shaping me[c] from nothing to something.

16 You saw who you created me to be before I became me!

Before I’d ever seen the light of day,
the number of days you planned for me 
were already recorded in your book.[e]

God's Word shows His love for our babies and alao for us. God ctreated us for a purpose, and part of that was to raise our kids to know Him. When we follow His plan, the  challenges are easier. WE have God within us to guide us. Do You know the Lord God? If not, I invite you today to choose to make Jesus the King of your heart. He will come and forgive all your mistakes (sins) and send Holy Spirit to indwell you. Then you have God Himself as your Mentor and your Guide. Those things you cannot accomplish, He can. You can rely on Him. Hey Moms, we all need help, and He is the supreme helper!

            Thank You Lord for blessing all our Mothers!

                                        AWESOME GOD


Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
