Mother’s Day Thoughts

DSC00318I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful Mother’s Day with your families. I’ll get to see my mom near the end of the month when our entire family gathers for a reunion, and I’m going to spend this Tuesday with my daughters when we all meet in T-town for a fun day together. Can’t wait :)

This seemed like the perfect day to share a picture of my parents with you. We took several shots during our April visit, but since Don isn’t used to the new camera yet, this is one of the only ones that isn’t a blurry mess :) It’s not the best picture of me, but I’m not the point of this picture :) I thank God for Mom and Dad and for the many years together He has blessed us with.

I hope you enjoy the following thoughts about mothers. May it bring joy to all as you think about your moms or inspire you if you are one of the special ladies out there living the role of “Mother”. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

MOTHER – A Gift from God

Makes priceless memories, mends hurting hearts, marvels over the smallest things, and models an authentic love for the Lord.

Opens her heart and hands to others, offers wise and loving counsel, overlooks faults and offenses, and obeys the Word of God.

Turns a frown into a smile, teaches right from wrong, tries to pray instead of worry, and tells others that God is her strength.

Hears the call of those who need her, hugs and comforts as only she can, hurries to help again and again, and honors the Lord in all she does.

Eases the pain of those she loves, encourages each step of the way, elects to forgive instead of hold grudges, and entrusts her children to the Lord.

Reminds when others forget, runs kids all over town, rejoices when her children grow strong in the Lord, and remembers that apart from Him she is nothing.

“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:29
