Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
As I wander down the paths that are set before me each day have I ever really stopped and thought about what may be waiting at the end of those paths. Will I have done what God asks me to do or will I have thought only of myself each step of the way. Will I have shown kindness and mercy to all I meet or will I just brush off what happens along that particular path as of no consequence. I pray I don't and that I will do what my Momma taught me to do. She always said a stranger is just a friend you haven't met so treat others as you want to be treated and don't say anything about any body unless it is good. My Momma was a sweet southern lady who never met a stranger and would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it more. Momma I sure miss you but I thank you for the sacrifices you made as us kids were growing up. You always put our needs ahead of your own and I pray I can be just like you. Love you Momma...
Father God thank you for the goodness and love you have blessed my life with. Thank you giving me a Godly Mother to instill in me your love and grace... Amen
Surely Goodness and Mercy
by John W. Peterson and Alfred B. Smith
A pilgrim was I, and a wandering,
In the cold night of sin I did roam,
When Jesus the kind Shepherd found me,
And now I am on my way home.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days, all the days of my life.
