Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

The Lord hath prepared His throne in the heavens and His kingdom ruleth over all..Psalms 103:19

Mother played many years
at funerals and weddings
Some events brought blessings
Of joy to daughters or for sons...
While others shed their tears
For losing dear loved ones...

The memories that still lingers
Are not only how Mom played
The piano and church organs...
But when she clasped her fingers
In both of her strong hands
and knelt humbly as she prayed.

Mothers teach us alone
To reach e'en higher
As far as the throne,
The Lord has prepared.
Angels sing God's choir,
From pearly gates above...
And is faithfully shared...
Through wings of love.

Poetry by me, AJP

I thought of my late mother who passed away at 102 years old on October 25, 2011, when I wrote these simple words in my poetry within 5 minutes this afternoon in memory of her for Mother's Day. This is a picture I shot of her in 2008 when she was still living at her apartment. ( I added two more verses to my poetry later this afternoon.) I like to remember my mother when she was actively involved in the things that she liked to do and she had purpose for waking up to greet each day...I thank her for being a strong influence throughout my life and for her love.

Happy Mother's Day on Sunday and have a wonderful weekend!

    Mum's are just so special & your mum look's lovely, My mum died 11 year's ago this coming July, i was 36 years old and felt like a small child, lonely & lost, My heart felt like it was broken and i felt real pain inside, i could not believe she was gone, i think in my dreamy little world i thought she would live for ever, I still miss her, she is in my every day thoughts..

    Thank you all for your kind words.. I am happy that I shot this picture of Mom holding some cards in her hands as a memory of every Mother's day that we spent with her through the years. I know how much all of you miss your mother's who you were close to and who are no longer here..They are a part of you that lives in your heart and they live in your thoughts.

    What a great tribute to your beloved Mother, Andrea. I know she was quite a multi-talented lady, a devout Christian, and a wonderful mother. I understand the hurt of losing your mother. I lost mine one year ago after she suffered 14 years with Alzheimer's disease. It was merciful of God to take her home when he did, but my heart aches for the suffering she endured. God Bless!!!
