bipolar mom shares her insights on everyday life

God at Work

Today’s Monday link is of a personal nature.  Mark was confirmed yesterday.  And as I mentioned in a previous post, his testimony was about my brother. 

When I read his testimony on Wednesday, I cried.  I told him it was amazing, and that he really has a gift of putting into words how he feels.  I also told him to be prepared for there to be tears in the congregation of those who know the situation.  He said, “I know.  I’m kind of expecting that.  In fact, I knew when I came down here and you read it today, that you would cry.” 

He wanted to make sure he wasn’t being “mean.”  I assured him he was not.  He said that he had thought of being more specific about the “personal issues,” but thought it best not to elaborate.

So, without further ado, I give you the link to his testimony

I am so proud of him.  I cried a little when he delivered the testimony, because I was amazed at what a strong Christian Mark is.  And, how I truly fall short.  My friend told me that Tom and I had built a strong foundation for him.  Thank you, Liz.  But, still I wondered how I would be able to prevent what happened with my brother to happen with Mark. 

Then, I remembered Mark’s verse.  And, I’m following Mark’s example.

  1. What a wise boy your son is!~ way beyond his years in understanding what God has laid before us. Many MANY times I have had to remind myself of this throughout trials and tribulations in my life…and looking back on ones in my past I CAN see the path that God led me down. Keep that testimony close…I have a feeling it will help you through some hard times here in the future.
    PS~ I want you to know that I think that you and Tom have definitely done a wonderful job! I hope one day I can be bless with hearing such a testimony from my own boys.
    Love ya lots!

  2. How proud you must be – Mark did an excellent job with his testimony and learning something that takes some of us our whole lives. Hugs to you, Michelle!
