This 2-page scrapbook layout that I submitted to the
Great American Scrapbook Convention 
won first place in their Pages of Life Contest in 2002
This was and still is a very special layout especially since my Mom just passed away 2 1/2 years ago. It is entitled "A Warrior's Lessons of Love". It includes photos from different stages of her life and the things she learned along the way and how she passed those values down to the 4 of us ~ her children. I journal how I learned just by seeing how strong she was - spiritually and emotionally. She was a true warrior so I added this special poem to the layout:

This morning my thoughts traveled along
To a place in my life where days have long since gone
Beholding an image of what I used to be
As visions were stirred and God spoke to me
He showed me a Warrior a soldier in place
Positioned by Heaven,yet I saw not the face
I watched as the Warrior fought enemies
That came from the darkness with destruction for me
I saw as the Warrior would dry away tears
As all of Heaven's Angels hovered so  near
I saw many wounds on the Warriors face
Yet weapons of warfare were firmly in place
I felt my heart weeping my eyes held so much
As God let me feel the Warrior's prayer touched
I thought " how familiar" the words that were prayed
The prayers were like lightening that never would fade
I said to God "please the Warrior's name"
He gave no reply, He chose to refrain I asked,
Lord, who is broken that they need such  prayer?"
He showed me an image of myself standing there
Bound by confusion, lost and alone
I felt prayers of the Warrior carry me home
I asked "Please show me Lord. this Warrior so true"
I watched and I wept, for Mother.....

the Warrior-was you!
