Jesus Paid It All

Memories of My Son

Jonathan Martinez


One year ago my Son
Jonathan Martinez
went home to be with Jesus.

Jonathan was the most wonderful Son a mom
could wish for. Jonathan was always wanting
to be my helper. I remember when he
took his first steps and started to fall. I ran
to his rescue to help him. As the days turned
into years my little boy became a man. I only
wish I could have kept him from the pain he
suffered the last few months of his life.
My son passed away on June 22, 2016.

It does not seem fair in life when a Mother
has to attend the Funeral of her Son.
Life will teach us many things. One of which
Life is not always going to be easy.
I look forward to the day that I will see
My Son again in Heaven.
Jonathan finished His Race.
I look forward to seeing
Jonathan’s Smile. He always had a smile
that melted his Mama’s heart.
I have many memories to hold on to
until I see my Son again. A couple
of them I will share with you to honor
the Blessing God gave to me to be
the Mother of Jonathan Martinez.
Through the Holidays Jonathan would go
make his Mama the best cup of coffee to
go with my Holiday Desert.
One Thanksgiving Jonathan and I
got to cook the
Family Thanksgiving Dinner together.
He choose to make
Prime Rib with all the Fixings.
He made
my favorite for Desert.
Creme Brulee. It was soooooo
good. And of course Jonathan
made me a wonderful cup of coffee
to go with my Creme Brulee.
I have many memories of
Jonathan coming over early
in the morning with our
Grandchildren and asking
me to make breakfast.
I am so thankful for those
Memories. My Son and His Babies.

Also when Jonathan was a little
boy, he wanted to help me put
gas in the car. He went and got
the hose and pumped gas all over
the top and side of the car. He was
fast to tell me it is ok because he
was going to buy me a 450SL when
He grew and He said he
 would buy it in favorite color.
And yes, He was smiling when he
said that to me.

Just a few of so Many
 Memories of
my Precious Son.

Sister Joy wants you to know that
Life will not always be easy.
Situations will happen that we can
not understand.  As a child of God
we must always know that the Lord
loves us. God did not promise Life
would be easy. God did not say we
would always live on the Mountain
Tops. There will be Valleys that
we will all have to walk through.
This last 10 years has been
very difficult for Sister Joy.
However, nothing I have went
though compares to pain I have
gone through with the passing away
of my Son, Jonathan.
Through all the pain, the Lord has
held Sister Joy every step of every
day. God’s Grace has been sufficient
for me each and every day this last
Sister Joy wants you to know,
that no matter what you are
facing today, God is right there
to hold your hand and help you
as you walk through your valley.
Do not give up. Allow God to
hold you. Allow the Holy Spirit to
speak peace to your troubled heart.
Jesus died and paid the price so that
you can make it through.
Today, Sister Joy stands on
the Word of God to help her
another day. I only pray that you
allow God’s Word to help and heal
your heart as it does mine.
I am so thankful for Jesus and
what He did for me at Calvary.
This is a Prophecy by Isaiah so
many years before Jesus was
even born.

Isaiah 53: 1-6
“Who has believed our report:
and to whom is the
 Arm of the Lord revealed?
For He shall grow up before
Him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
He has no form or comeliness;
and when we shall see Him,
there is no beauty that we should
desire Him.
He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and
acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces
from Him; He was despised,
and we esteemed Him not.
Surely He has borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem Him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace
was upon him;
and with His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on Him
the iniquity of us all.”

Jesus did this for us all.
Jesus died to save all of us
from the consequences of our sins.
Jesus died to give to us
Eternal Life.
