Thanks MOM

My mom turns 70 today and I want to honor her. Mom has poured so much into my life. She gave me confidence with her words. She filled our home with laughter as a kid. She encouraged me to go to Indiana, when it was time to leave my hometown, for ministry. She would slip me an extra $20.00, as a young teen to just have some fun. She prayed for me, and told me that with God all things were possible. She passed on a strong will, that says you can do it. One of my favorite things she did, was to pass on a chant to me, and my siblings, that went like this, Rain, hail, lightning, thunder, the Browns, and the Anderson's, will never go under, never, never, NEVER!

So on this day, I say this to my mom, Beverly Ann Anderson; I love you, I thank you for giving me life, I thank you for always believing in me, and will remain committed to you, the world is a better place because of you, and I will always speak highly of you, you deserve a big crown in heaven, mom!

I know you probably won't read this, because you do not own a personal computer, but I want everyone in the blogging world to know, that you are amazing..

Happy Birthday Mom!

Love jimmy

Jimmy, this is so nice! I hope when my Isaac grows up he will show so much love for me! I think of you at times and appreciate all that you have done for me when I was a teen. Your influence has shown so strong through my life...I know alot of things I have done and are planning to do are things that you have instilled in me, by your example, at a very impressionable time in my life. I know years have gone by and you may have never known this...but I love you for taking the time!!~Jill

I inherited all my ability to make goofy faces from Aunt Bev and Aunt Linda. LOL

Jim, How exciting it is to see you being used so mightily in the kingdom of God.
