Happy Heaven Day, Mama

mom-i-miss-you1[1]

What do I look forward to the most when it’s time to go to heaven?

Meeting Jesus and seeing His glorious face…
Basking in His presence and love forever…
Getting to live with Him for all eternity and know my family is there too…
And being reuinted with my mama.

My mama will always be my mama, even though she is no longer here physically. But more importantly, she is HIS child. Sometimes I forget to remember that. Sometimes I just miss her so badly that I feel like the little girl in the image above.

But then I remember to stop forgetting – I remember that I’m so glad that I can still celebrate the times I had with my mama while she was here with me on this earth.

I remember – I can do this in my mind – I can do this in my memories – I can do it with my heart, my soul, and every time I see her in the faces, gestures, and behaviors, laughter, and love shown through my own children…her grand babies.

And then I’m astounded, elated, comforted, and inspired that I can remember that every day now is Happy Heaven Day for my mama.

She’s my mama….and yes, I miss her…

And she’s HIS child.

He is the Father to whom both of us belongs.

One is with Him in heaven right now, while the other is living day by day drawing as near to Him as she possibly can until it’s time to join them.

I hope He’s giving her a flower for me today…

I hope He’s showering her in flowers.

I hope they dance and laugh and sing together every single day.

And save a spot for me when it’s my turn to come and join the party.

I know the party there is far more awesome than what I could have for her here.

Happy Heaven Day Mama….

Happy Heaven Day.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a  time to pluck up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time  to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time  to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance Ecclesiastes 3:1-4

  1. I love the picture with the child. I will imagine one of a father and put myself there in my dad’s arms. I lost him 2 years ago, on Mother’s day. Has been tough but then it is tough for all of us who have lost loved ones. I am so glad your mom knew Christ and that you will see her again one day. What a happy day of celebration for us when we see them there! I like the Happy Heaven day phrase, too! Blessings and sorry about your loss.

    • We will continue to miss them, but what a blessing when we get there! Thank you dear friend – I am so glad you look forward to seeing your dad again too!
