A Mother’s Prayer for her Son
© 2013 Syneeda Penland
May my child’s blessed spirit always be felt as we continue to celebrate my Son’s legacy; yesterday, today and always.
When a mother is faced with the unbearable decision to “give back to God”, one of her children, it is one of the most heartfelt decisions she will ever have to face.
Throughout our children’s lives, we are tasked by God to watch over them soon after giving birth. As we watch them grow, God orders our steps, at times to take a step back, as he guides them the rest of the way through life.
Within our children, we pass on all the teachings and blessings bestowed to us by our Heavenly Father. No matter the trials and tribulations we may face during of our Earthly lives, God is always guiding our path. It is when we are faced with passing the final test, the final phase of our earthly journey, is when we will be tested to earn a place in God’s Heavens. If we shall pass this test, we will then earn ourselves a shining Star.
There are not enough words in the English language to describe how my child, unselfishly fulfilled his duties to serving God. All throughout his life, he touched so many hearts with acts of generosity, kindness and unrelenting love. To others, he will truly be missed.
As his birth mother, I too was able to fulfill my duties and responsibilities to God by raising such a remarkable servant to our Heavenly Father.
For he is my Sun, my Rain, my Pain, my Joy and my Salvation; he is now watching over me as one of God’s brightest shining Stars. He is my Heavenly Angel.
