Mildred was one of the children The Lord helped me to raise. She was a wonderful human being, loved Jesus and served Him well She had her degree in nursing and was a dedicated worker. Married to the same man for 33 years., mother of 2 children. God called her home in 1999. She gave me this tribute 3 months before she went home.

Mother, you have opened me to so much love I have not yet found a world to give it all to...

All of the rich and joy-filled moments we have shared together has given me
a deeper understanding of life
and the true meaning of human happiness...

I remember not a day passed in my childhood and youth
that you didn't find someway to give,
even when you were tired
or carried a troubled heart.

From you I learned charity and compassion
and tolerance. From you,
I learned to like myself.

It is because of these things that I am growing .
Your being a part of my life, and believing in me,
gave me the courage to be a person,
to be free.

You will always be with me , then because we have shared not only love, but trust. Trust me, then, to remember and love you forever.

God saw she was getting tired
and a cure was not to be
He put His around her and whispered "Come With Me."

Yes, Miss Mildred I trust you to love me for forever. And I'll be with you one day. Your Mom.

Beware the Winds of Doctrine by Henry Miranda

A Christian should be grounded and rooted in the word of God, if not, he is prone to be dispersed or destroyed by the winds of doctrine..
