Recently, on June 29th, 2019, two days after my 35th birthday, my Mum passed on.
Despite the fact that she was sick for a while, her demise was not at all expected. Funnily, after she had gone and I wasn’t yet informed, I put up a post on my family WhatsApp group that “I’m praying” and “It’s well with Mum“. LOL
It is indeed well with her as she had the opportunity to declare the Lordship of Jesus over her life and affirm her forgiveness of everyone who had offended her before she passed on. Glory! (Romans 10:9-10)
So while we do not mourn like those who do not have hope, yet we mourn… because we indeed lost a dearly beloved Mother and a pillar of support.
Storytelling for me has always been an avenue of heartfelt expression and in times of pressure, a form of relief.
At this time, I’m telling the stories as a form of memorial for my Mum and also as a part of my healing journey or coping with her passing.
I’m grateful to the Holy Spirit for his comfort for my entire family and we know that God has caused all things to work together for our good.
This has been a while coming and I’m glad that finally, I’m able to start.
So today, I launch a new category on The Storytela…
