Welcome to my first 2017 “Write 31 Days” posts landing page.
My mother lived a life of miracles. Do you wonder if God will heal you? If He will provide? If He will show you your life purpose? Give you a mate? Protect you from harm? My mother’s life is a testimony of these answered prayers.
On October 15, 2016, my mother, Dorothy Lee Richards, passed away.
Those of you who have lost a mother know exactly how that feels. I am praying for you.
I am also praying that you enjoy these posts. Someone once said, “Writer’s write.” I hadn’t thought of my mother as a writer until a friend described her that way. She grew up in the Jim Crow south, was a Christian, mother, wife, Sunday School teacher, medical professional in a state mental hospital…and she was a writer. She wrote to God, loved ones, children, prisoners, ministers, friends and to me. Even though I think she could type a little, she hand wrote these messages of encouragement.
She once said while overcoming a challenge, “I’m too important to God to let one setback destroy my life.” And, she had a few setbacks, but she also had many victories. She lived her life as an offering, a witness, a Christian.
These article posts are to share what she wrote with you. It is my prayer that you are encouraged by her life.
Are you looking for a soulmate? See tomorrow’s post for a message from Mama about how my mother “saw” my father before they ever met.
