May 12, 2019 - Mother's Day - Her Children arise and call her blessed...
Proverbs 31:10 (KJV)
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies..
A familiar mother’s day poem written in the early 1900’s is:
M is for the Many things she gave me, O means only that she's growing Old. T is for the Tears she shed to save me, H is for her Heart of purest gold. E is for her Eyes with love light shining, R means Right and Right she'll always be.
Put them all together, they spell MOTHER.
God created families and gave mothers a unique place in that unit. We can love, give of ourselves, cook, clean, wash clothes, put Band-Aids on scrapes … be the first one up in the morning or the last one down at night.
We juggle a lot of things including raising children, working at jobs, managing a home, and sometimes finding time for ourselves.
Each day is a new beginning of what lies before us. We have destiny, purpose, and the power to do and be all that we are called to be. Nothing can stop us except ourselves. As mothers, we need to find the strength to face each day knowing that God loves us.
