A Tribute to My Mother

Written by

Abraham Lincoln once said, “No man is poor who had a godly mother.” Indeed, my mother, Sharon E. Law, loved the Lord Jesus Christ, and everyone knew it. Her deposits in the lives of her four children and many, many others are priceless treasures.

She was 17 when I was born and from my earliest recollections, there was never a time when I did not sense her love, protection, sacrifice, care, and generosity. I’m the oldest of four children born to Jim and Sharon Law who were married for nearly 58 years until this week when she passed from this life into the presence of her Lord. Nothing but everlasting love and gratitude fill my heart upon every remembrance of her. I offer this post as an initial tribute with more to come.

Please pray for our family as we meet this Sunday, December 4th, 2022 to give glory to God for her life and the hope we know through Jesus Christ our Lord. The funeral service will be offered through Livestream on the Troutman Baptist Church, Troutman, NC, YouTube channel.
