Mama’s Rocking Chair


I have a good friend who lost their grandmother yesterday. I woke up early praying for her and others who I know are grieving the loss of loved ones today. On such occasions, I generally try to express some of my thoughts in writing. For my friend, and others who are hurting today, I pray that you will experience God’s comfort and His peace.

 

Mama’s Rocking Chair

Every day I have reminders
That she had to say goodbye,
Every keepsake, every picture
Makes me want to cry.
But the best reminder I have,
Sits in the corner over there
And every day I take some time to sit,
In mama’s rocking chair.

And when I’m feeling lonely,
That chair’s my favorite place,
It’s where mama would hold me,
And wipe the tears from my face.
She couldn’t answer every question
But she knew just what to say
She taught me life’s best lessons
Before she went away.

Now she’s in the presence of our Savior,
‘Cause she believed the words He said,
She’s giving thanks with Jesus,
They’ve already broken bread.
And I know someday we’ll hold each other
When we meet again up there,
But until that day comes, I’ll rest
In mama’s rocking chair.

Every day I have reminders
That she had to say goodbye,
Every keepsake, every picture
Makes me want to cry.
But the best reminder I have
Sits in the corner over there
And every day I take some time to sit,
In mama’s rocking chair.

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
