Jesus , my wake-up call

ImageThree months ago, while talking with a friend on the phone , the name “Jesus Tellez” showed up on the screen as another call came in. I jokingly told her , “Jesus is calling but I’m not going to answer it.” Jesus continued to call . At last , I realized I had to tell “Jesus” he had the wrong number, When I answered the phone , I was shocked to recognize mom’s caregiver calling from her cell phone. It became a comfort to get a call from Jesus to know how mom was doing. On April 28th , my husband and I reluctantly went to the beach for one night , feeling mom was still well enough to do so . At a thrift store, I purchased a mug, decorated with a vintage black phone and the saying ” Jesus is my wake-up call’.  Three days later, on May 1st, I was awakened by the phone ringing . it was “‘Jesus” (mom’s caregiver) letting me know my mother did not make it through the night . Jesus was indeed my wake-up call ,telling me mom had arrived safely home. When clearing out mom’s room I asked the caregiver why her name showed up like that and she had no idea…

Lord , Thank you for showing up in our times of pain and loss. We praise you that you “got our number ” .. we just simply need to answer your call ..

A Heavenly Home

 Image

It’s been four months since our oldest son moved into his home making him a first time home buyer, as we rejoice in his accomplishment our hearts are thrilled in the fact he is just a hop, skip and a jump away from our house.  Being merely one block away, his home positioned on the very same street that my husband Kevin lived on when we were just friends.

Over thirty years ago I traveled down that very street to drop Kevin and his roommate off after attending my first college career meeting at a new church. Recently divorced, battling an eating disorder, and not sure if I would ever marry again or be blessed with children, my life seemed overwhelming and my future looked bleak. Never in a million years could I have fathomed what God had in store for me and my future family down that very road!

Thank you Father that, “You are able to carry out your purposes and to do super-abundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams. Ephesians 3:20  May we trust in a God that is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, The A to Z and everything in between. Being forever faithful as we depend on you.
