It’s the week of their birthdays.
One turned 15 three days ago.
The other celebrates the anniversary
of her fifteenth birthday today.
I’m blessed to be sandwiched between these two.
The one is my sweet daughter
whose love for Jesus puts this Mama's heart to shame.
She knows her Bible inside and out,
has memorized great passages
and close to a bazillion verses.
She is my walking concordance.
My own mama
who first taught me
Jesus loves me this I know.
She also knows her Bible inside and out
and has taught me much of the art of Bible study.
She is my walking commentary.
As I stand,
representing the generation between
I see my mom's legacy all over my daughter's life.
I reap the blessings of being between
these two women who each love Jesus
for they spur me on
to know Him better
and to love Him more.
I am blessed.
