  Eileen Becker Loving Mother and Best Friend—My Fabulous Mother-in Law

 

 

 

Recently Jerry Becker was talking to his mom Eileen. During the course of their conversation Eileen mentioned that she was very tired.  Concerned for his mom, Jerry simply asked: why are you so tired mom? Well she replied, I just baked about 12 angel food cakes. Now Eileen is a wonderful baker and fabulous cook. Folks would do most anything to get a hold of one those angel food cakes—Especially the chocolate! (My favorite) She can make anything taste sooo good!! Back to those 12 angel food cakes. “Mom what are doing with all those angel food cakes Jerry asked?” “Oh I am just making them for the old people! “Eileen responded. It just so happens that Eileen just turned 95. Apparently that’s still young!! Wow what a positive attitude and what a ministry!! We just recently celebrated her birthday. It was an awesome spiritual experience to say the least!

Eileen has always ministered to others and loves people!! She is an absolutely awesome person whom I love very much!  Eileen is my precious mother-in law who treats me as though I was her natural born son!

Eileen penned the poem that follows. It certainly reveals the depth of her relationship with Jesus! She loves Jesus and her family with all of her heart!!

Enjoy!!

 

GOD’S CARE

 

I WAS WALKING DOWN THE ROAD OF LIFE

NOT LOOKING EITHER WAY,

NOT GLANCING UP TO SEE THE THINGS

THAT GOD HAD MADE THAT DAY.

I COULDN’T SEE GOD’S FACE,

NOR SEE QUITE CLEARLY AS I WALKED

HOW HE SAVED ME BY HIS GRACE.

I STRUGGLED WITH EACH PASSING DAY

TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET,

WHEN LOW, I HEARD A MELLOW VOICE,

“COME SIT HERE AT MY FEET.”

I PAUSED A MOMENT LOOKING ROUND

TO SEE WHO SPOKE TO ME,

WHEN ON MY PATH A PICTURE CAME OF JESUS FACE I SEE.

IT LOOKED AS THO HE REALLY SPOKE

HIS COUNTENANCE QUITE SERENE,

THOSE LOVELING EYES LOOKED DOWN ON ME,

SENDING MESSAGES OF HOPE SUPREME.

I GAZED UPON THAT LOVELY FACE,

AND SAW THROUGH YEARS OF TIME.

HOW HE DIED ON THE CROSS

TO SAVE US FROM SIN,

AND PREPARE A HOME ABOVE, WHICH IS YOURS AND MINE.

I SAT THERE FOR HOURS, IT SEEMED AT LEAST,

ENJOYING THE CLOSENESS OF CHRIST,

ABSORBING HIS STRENGTH AND CALMNESS WITHIN

AND MOST OF ALL HIS GLORY AND GRACE.

I SAW THINGS DIFFERENTLY AS I WALKED ALONG

EACH DAY IS GOD’S GIVEN TIME,

PRAISE GOD! FOR THE WONDERFUL CARE HE GIVES,

AND THE RICHNESS OF GLORY SUBLIME.

How is your relationship with Jesus? Simply trust and Love Jesus with your whole heart.

I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. John 17:23

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  John 3:16-17

It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Romans 3:26

And always remember that God loves you just like He love His Son Jesus!!

I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. John 17:23

 God Loves You Just Like He Loves His Son Jesus!

The one thing above all others that Christ is desirous that we should know is that The Father has loved us even as He loved Him!
