Dedication



This Website is Dedicated to:

My Dear Husband

My ManThis website is dedicated to my beloved husband which has helped to make the past 28 years the best years of my life. He is a steady man always faithful to his family and selfless in meeting their needs. He never seeks personal glory but quietly performs his duty and willingly meets his responsibilities for his family. He is never rough but treats his family gently. Jose is a strong man of God never straying away from his convictions and core beliefs but always constant keeping to those values. His strength is exercised as he quietly assumes his responsibilities even when taken for granted. His works are not heroic or out in the limelight but he is content with that if his family is happy and their needs are being met. I admire his ability to keep cool under fire and his cautious wisdom. His calm strength gives me peace and security.

He never puts me under undue pressure to perform miracles nor places high expectations upon me. He never mistreats or belittles me or the children. He gives me the freedom to be my own person and willingly supports all my creative undertakings. I can always count on his support with everything that I endeavor to do from homeschooling the children to building my own business. His quiet steady strength allows me to be all that I can be and he takes great pride in all that I do. We are a perfect match for each other. I could not be what I am without the strength of his steady gentle nature. Me & My Hubby

Honey, together we have bred and raised six wonderful children. It has not always been easy but you have always been there for me and supported me in whatever challenge I have taken on. Together we have weathered the storms in parenting, faced some trying times which has tested our character time and again. You have backed me and supported all my wild adventures and crazy ideas. You have been a good sport venturing into unknown territory willing to face the challenges, hurdles, and pitfalls without quitting. You have been my dearest and closest friend always. I look forward to our future years together as we graduate into grandparenthood and enjoy the fruits of all our labor. I dedicate this website to you in celebration of our lives together and the victories we have enjoyed. You have always been an unselfish self sacrificing dedicated provider to your family through the years not making very many demands for yourself and offering everything for the good of your family. I love you honey and would not have wanted any one but you to share my life with. Thank you for choosing me to walk beside you and share your life with me.

 

I Love You Honey

To My Children


I want to dedicate this website to my six children. According to the scriptures you are My Children the fruit of my womb. The inspiration in naming you came from my life passages from Psalms 127.

    James Ellery
   Joseph Walter

      Jared Daniel

1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his REWARD.

4 As arrows are in the hand of the mighty man; so are children of the youth.

5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
                                                                              PSALMS 127 (My life verses)

Raising you has been a labor of love wherein I have devoted a major portion of my life to your care and training. I have endeavored to prepare you for . . . employment, marriage, parenthood, and life’s challenges. When I became a mother I considered it my most important career. One day many years ago I was pushing a shopping cart in Walmart with a child in the cart, while pregnant with a child in the baby seat and another child walking beside me when a lady looked at me and asked me a very sarcastic question, “What are you doing making a career of it?” I didn’t like her tone of voice so I answered her positively, “As a matter of fact, I am!” And that was my attitude about it. I took my role as mother very seriously.

My Children

This blog/website is a record of sorts of our time together from a mother’s perspective that I pray will continue to be a blessing and help to you and one that you will also share with your children as they grow so they will know what a rich heritage they have been given. Know this, that I will always be here for you when you need me and will never stop loving you. My desire has always been the very best for you.

I Love Each and Everyone of You

To The Motherless

I further dedicate this website to all those out there that grew up without the loving affection and tender care of a godly mother to pass onto you the stuff that life is made up of. You may be one who lost your mother by death, divorce, separation, or disappearance. I lost my mother to divorce when I was just three and half and later by a mysterious dissappearance when I was 18. I understand your loss because I have lived with it all my life.

Motherless Children
 My siblings and I after our parents Divorce

Some of you have mothers but she was overworked herself because she had to work outside the home to put you through school or to help make ends meet financially and seemed spent at the end of the day and so it may have seemed that she was not there for you. She made her sacrifices in her own way and you need to appreciate her for it. This website may be of service to you and a possible extention of what she wished she could have done for you.

 

Perhaps you have a mother that has a mental condition or drug or alcohol addiction and it feels like she doesn't care about you nor loves you. To understand her you need to look deeper and find out what went wrong in her life. She may have been abused, betrayed, or hurt by someone or something and is suffering emotionaly from it. She needs you to love her anyway though she may seem to be unlovable. The Bible says, "Love conquors a multitude of sins." You may be able to help her overcome her trials and find a new outlook on life. Out of necessity you will need to become self-sufficient and learn some things on your own. I had to pull myself up by the boot straps and teach myself many things because I was not taught all that I needed to know when I started my adult life. I have learned from my failures and mistakes and changed the direction of my life and I have done it without harboring bitterness, anger, nor a wounded spirit. You must endeavor to always be teachable. Perhaps God is using your trials and difficulties to mold you for something great so someday you can be a help or inspiration to others. This blog site may be of help to you. I hope that my example will be an encouragement to you.

 

I know what it is like to go through life without such a one to help you, guide you, teach you, and encourage you when life’s challenges try your patience, tax your emotions, and use up all your physical reserves. I had two mothers that were not the mothers they should have been to me so I had to learn from life itself. There have been times when I felt so alone, abandoned by my own family but I can report to you today that I have a happy, fullfilled life. I have risen above my circumstances and have established a wonderful happy, close knit family. Keep this thought in the back of your mind "This too shall pass." You will not always be in the same state you currently find yourself in. You can make things different for you and your future family. You do not have to live in the chains of the past. I broke those chains and live a new life vastly different than how It was when I grew up.

 

My Mother & I
 The Only Childhood Photo I have of my Birth Mother and I
Perhaps you have felt as I have wishing there was a mother whom I could call and ask for advice about how to handle a distressing situation with the children or how to bake a ham without tasting salty or some other domestic challenge. Sometimes I have felt like a pioneer having to forge new trails, traveling through uncharted territory, not sure if what I am doing will even work and not knowing if it is the right thing to do. It is hard work felling trees, clearing land and trying to bring civility to the wilderness all by yourself. That is what it sometimes feels like when you don't have the foundational training of a good mother. This website is a record of that process in my life as I have failed forward to success.

I do not presume that this website could even begin to fill that void that you feel but perhaps it can lend a hand to help you in some small way if nothing more than to just encourage you that no matter where you have come from, no matter what your situation has been growing up you can rise above your own circumstances and make your future different. If I can do it so can you. You can do better for yourself and for your children and start a rich heritage to pass on to your children for generations to come. Say to yourself, “It starts with me.” You can do it. Yes, you can. Give it a try. If you let me I can be your Online Mom. Feel free to email me if you need.

God Loves You

To My Birth Mother

Betty L BradburyI also want to dedicate this website to my own birth mother whom I’ve barely had the opportunity to know. The divorce took you away from me before I was four and divided us for a lifetime.

I am sorry that my desire to have a day pick-nick with you and my siblings caused you so much pain. I was so young with a strong desire to know you. I didn’t know how upsetting it would be for my step-mother for me to make a request to have a private time with you. Why couldn’t she understand the desire of a five year old to naturally want be with her own mother? In all the visits that I can remember I do not think we ever had a private Betty L Bradburymoment alone. She was always there with prying ears listening to every word that was spoken and if things were not acceptable to her I would hear about it after you left sometimes for days. Her listening in put me under such a strain so that I could not speak freely, openly, and honestly with you.

The moments after your visits were very stressful to me so much so that it caused me to long for peace more than anything. I am deeply sorry for what I said to you on your last visit to our home when I was only twelve. I just wanted peace at home because I had to live with her day after day. I did not really mean what I said to you that day, not one bit. I did not really want you to go away and never come back, quite the contrary. I wanted more than anything to get to know you, spend time with you and develop a relationship but all that was denied to both of us. I can only imagine how hurt you must have been that day. I am sorry and wish I could take back those words.

My brother and I were so happy that we did at least have the opportunity to visit you in South Bend, Indiana for two whole weeks that December back in 1979. It was a big deal in my book to spend those two weeks in your home with you. I had longed all my Betty L Bradburychildhood to be near you, learn about you, and really get to know you. I had thought after I moved out of my father’s house that we could finally begin to get to know one another without interference. I did not know then that visit would be the last time that we were to see each other. We have tried to research about your disappearance but have not found any answers. If the family knows something they are not telling us. My brother, two sisters, and I wonder if you are still alive today. If you are hiding we do not care the reason. We just want to know you. If there is a chance that you should somehow come upon this website and read this note please know that I love you and have always hoped that some day we shall meet even if not on this earth I hope to see you in Heaven. Please remember one of the last things that I told you. I said, “I love you, and I don’t blame you for anything.” and I meant it. If you are out there and happen to come upon this note please contact me so we can reconnect. I would love for you to meet my six wonderful children and sweet husband.

 

I Love You Mom and Have Missed You All These Years

To My God and My Savior

Furthermore I want to dedicate this blogsite to my Lord and Savior.  My life would not be what it is to day without the Lord's presense in my life. Many people go through life trying to fend for themselves on their own with no clear direction, no moral compass to guide them. Their pursuits leads to frustrations, emptiness and failure leaving them feeling hopless, unloved, unfulfilled, and empty. Many of them become bitter and angry causing them to lash out at other people out of their inward pain.  All my parents have failed me, forsaken me, and let me down but my Lord God has never failed me. God has been with me since the day when a 12 year old child, I trusted Jesus as my Savior. He has worked in my life guiding the direction of my life. Although I did not start living for God until I was 23 years old He was watching over me and guiding my footsteps along the way.

 

As I look back at the events of my life I can see the hand of God written all over my life protecting me from directions I might have gone, showing me the light for the directions I should go. My relationship with God has been longer than my relationship with any of my three parents. Without God in my life I would have repeated the mistakes of my parents living under a cursed life. Since I have started to live by the precepts of his Word, the Bible, I have discovered true wisdom to live by. When I put his principles to use I have reaped the satisfying results which prove that God's ways are the best. 

"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."  Proverbs 16:25

 

I have based my life choices upon the truths of the Bible. It has been my guidbook in parenting as well. Time and time again I have seen the proof of the wisdom from the Bible played out in my life. I do not know why people choose to live without God in their vain and empty pursuits. We do not have to be miserable as long as their is a God in Heaven. He loves us without end; forgives all our sins past, present, and future; gives us strength to carry on; helps us carry our burdens by making them lighter; empowers us with courage to face the challenges of life; and teaches us wisdom through His Word, the Bible. We can choose to live a blessed life or forsake Him and live a cursed life filled with misery and pain. I chose the blessed life and feel very blessed indeed.

 

Thank You Lord For Loving Me and Being My Heavenly Father and Showering My Family with Your Blessings

 

"Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table." Psalms 128:1-3

To My Earthly Father

Dear Daddy,

    I dedicate this website to you my father. Ellery D. Batchelder Sr.There are a few things that I must thank you for because the things you did for me when I was a young child were foundational for who I am today.

 

    I am sorry that you have missed out on knowing my six children. I wish you had wanted to be a part of their lives because you would have been proud. They are all grown now starting their own lives.  Perhaps in reading through this blogsite you can see the great family that I have and how well things have turned out for me. You will also observe that I am still faithful in church and serving my God, something you thought was just a passing fancy. You were wrong about that because what I have is real. I want to thank you for making us go to church that one year on the church bus. It was because of your decision to send us to church I found true meaning to life which has richly blessed me to this day.  I also want to thank you for disciplining us when we were young because that taught us to learn that there is punishment for sin. That helped me understand how God punishes sin in Hell and it helped me to understand the gospel message of how God paid for my sins with his own life and bought my Redemption. I have the best gift which is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son. I wish you too could know this peace and would accept the same gift otherwise we will be parted not only in this life but for an eternity.

 

    I also want to thank you for the example you set for all of us being a hard working man. I believe that work ethic exists in all of us children. But in all our hard work we cannot earn our way to Heaven by our own merits. There is nothing good in us because we are all hopelessly sinners but there is God's mercy and grace. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

"But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with ferevent heat, the earth also and the works that are therin shall be burned up." 2Peter 3:10

   It is still my hope and prayer that you will throw away your stubborn pride and learn the true meaning of forgiveness and put your trust in a God who loves you and died for you. What ever it is that keeps you from loving your children is also robbing you of happiness, joy, and peace.  Do you really want to go to the grave with all that emptiness, loss, and heartache? God is the only thing that can bring healing to our family. There is healing through Jesus Christ. He is as real as certainly as there is a sun in the sky. He is there even when you cannot see Him just like the sun on a cloudy day it is still there. Hell is a real place too and there will not be a single party there only suffering and misery with an eternal fire and darkness. People who go to Hell will be sadly disappointed filled with many regrets to suffer for an eternity. As long as you have a breath it is not too late to turn your heart over to Jesus Christ who already paved the way for you. When you make that decision Contact Me. I want to rejoice with you.

 

 

I Love you Daddy ~ Still praying for you to get saved because it would change our whole family.
