She was always doing something exciting with her church youth group while I was doing little with my friends at all. Even after we both left that job, she kept in touch with me a few times, and made it clear that my spiritual life concerned her. Then events started happening in my life that kept me wondering whether I was missing something by not being a Christian.
Of course, providing financial assistance without asking for return is a great generosity; but beyond this are: the love; joy; peace; patience; kindness; goodness; faithfulness; gentleness; and self-control, we show to others, those are indeed Jesus Christ shows to us every moment. I learned this from a spiritual sister who led me to know God, we knew each other three years ago. She treats me like her real family: She always encourages me while I am tired of waiting for God 's signs. She always talks good things about me to others. No matter what difficult lives give us, she always has full faith in Jesus
Fenstad's Mother In this paper I will try to analyze the complex character of Fenstad's Mother and show the changes and the consistencies in her character throughout the story. ====================================================================== At first, Fenstad's Mother's character is revealed to us at the beginning of the story as a very practical woman who was preoccupied by social activities, social rights, and religion has never interested her, she is amused by her son's churchgoing and even makes fun of him because of it: "Fensad's mother was a lifelong social progressive who was amused by her son's churchgoing" (p. 115), ""Skating after church? Isn't that some sort of doctrinal error?" (p. 116). She is a perceptive person.
“Where your treasure is, your heart is also” (15). This is a major subject, we absorb in this book that a preacher’s family is not rich and a preacher’s family is certainly the most watched, but ignored family there is in most of the occasions. And, we see the qualifications the preacher’s wife should have or develop in order to help her spouse and help her in situations that she may find herself. She must be a happy, outgoing, positive minded, caring and last but not least a loving person. The author’s purpose in writing this book is to inform and help Christian wives but specifically preacher’s wives to deal with problems in a positive and godly way without lashing out in a worldly manner.
(Feminism In Their Eyes Were Watching God). Instead of having to depend on a husband, for the first time Janie relied completely on herself (The Concept of Love and Marriage in Zora Neale Hurston 's Their Eyes Were Watching God). With Joe gone, Janie was free to let her hair down and bring her voice back to life (Feminism In Their Eyes Were Watching God). After the way that Joe treated Janie throughout their marriage, she was not depressed over his death, and instead enjoyed her independence through being a widow (Feminism In Their Eyes Were Watching God). As Janie had said, “’Tain’t dat Ah worries over Joe’s death, Phoeby.
An admirable person stands for excellence: deserving to be admired, inspiring approval and affection. With that definition being said, only one person stands out in my mind, my grandmother. She was a strong woman who cared for eleven children which took a lot of hard work and dedication. I was given the life to spend with her and the chance to learn from her wisdom and follow by her examples. There was not a day that went by that she did not guide me in the right direction and teach me a life lesson that still today helps me become a better person.
Eulogy for Mother My mother gave me a very special gift before she left. A gift that I don't need to decide how to pass down & divide evenly to my 3 beautiful children (her grandchildren Jessica, Emily and Julia) A gift that I don't need to worry about keeping on a safe shelf so it doesn't break. My mother (and father) gave me the gift of faith. Anyone who knew my mother knew she always prayed. Over these past few days my brothers and I have discussed this and wondered how many hours during the day she prayed.
Also, not being an overly emotional person, I seldom cry. However, it felt renewing to cry as I remembered my grandma as I wrote this paper. I think now I would love to go to the temple and be baptized for her. That is the best thing I could do to show my love for her. It would also give me a better chance of seeing her for a long time when I join her on the other side.
She said, “I’m a grandmother, my love for you is just like having another daughter.” I realized that she was my biggest supporter and teaching me how to be independent was something she did from the bottom of her heart. She also felt that since my father wasn’t in my life that I deserved to have all the support from family. My mother is a single mom and my grandmother stepped up to the plate and helped where my mom fell short. I will always have the up-most respect for my grandmother because she went over and beyond for me. I felt as though my grandmother did everything out of love and not because she felt obligated to.
Aside from having a heart of gold, she is also the strongest person I know. She beat cancer and has also battled other things in her life, but she never once seemed weak to me. Always smiling and making the best of every situation, Aunt Ann has always gone out of her way for me and the rest of our family, even while dealing with her own struggles. I am blessed to have such a strong, loving woman in my life whom I truly look up to. I am beyond thankful for my family, however I am especially blessed to have the five I look up to most.
