May the gift of God’s Son Jesus bring peace to your
heart and home this 2021 Christmas and throughout 2022.
Welcome to Masterpieces of The Master website.
It is my pleasure to meet you online and hope that what you find here
will encourage and strengthen you in this complex experience we call “life.”
If you have read Masterpieces of The Master, you would have read
my tribute to my mother (below) who died at the age of twenty-six years old. She was
the mother I never had the privilege of growing up with; a mother whose personality
I possess (so I have been told by some who knew her).
After telling a friend that I had dedicated the first chapter of Masterpieces of The Master to her memory, she suggested I wrote a tribute. I resisted at first because at the time of her death, I was nearly four years old and only two memories of her remained with me. One, where I wanted to do something naughty, but her eyes looked as though they were following my every move (needless to say I declined from carrying out my plan); the second was of her lying on her sickbed.
As I sat down and picked up a pen to write, tears began to flow and after a short while they became unstoppable. I sobbed my heart out for a long time as I looked over my life and saw all the years of always seeking someone to fill her place. Eventually, I picked up the pen, and as I began to write, words just flowed from my inner being. I thank God for the privilege of being inspired to write such beautiful words about a mother I had never really known but could still celebrate. You can find my tribute under REMEMBRANCE in Select Category.
“A mother holds her children’s hands for a moment, but their hearts forever!” (Unknown)
Is there someone in your life that you respect and admire?
I would encourage you to celebrate them while they are still alive.
Let them know how much they mean to you now, rather than wait until it’s too late.
I would love to know what happened when you did.
