Mother’s Day Thoughts

Mothers come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. There isn’t a government law or universal standard that declares “all mothers must be thus and so…” Each unique mother is especially designed by God to not only bring life into the world, but to be a nurturer, an encourager and supporter, someone who can be counted on when you face even the bleakest of times. Mothers carry within them God’s heart of love, His heart of compassion, His nature of grace.

Today especially we honor and salute our mothers. Their calling isn’t always easy but it’s full of rewards throughout their lives. I’m personally thankful for both my mom and my grandmother. I learned a lot from these ladies that has stayed with me all my life. They have both gone on to be with Jesus, but I’ll see them again, and we’ll have a grand reunion. Both of them laid a foundation in my life of God’s love and salvation, and from their example I learned to trust the Lord and believe His Word. I had excellent role models, and when I became a mother, I wanted to follow their examples.

My mother-in-law is also an example of a Godly woman who raised her children in the love and admonition of the Lord. She is a strong proponent of this ministry and enjoys writing to prisoners who are taking our Bible Study courses. We are grateful that she’s still with us and doing well for her 91 years on this earth! The last two years she and I were able to celebrate our birthday together which was really special. I’m blessed to have such a wonderful mother-in-law, and Jack is indeed blessed with a great mother.

We honor our mothers, our mother-in-laws, our daughters and step-daughters, our granddaughters,  and those mothers who are close to us like family. Thank you for all you do, and all that you’ve done in our lives. We are the richer for your sacrifices, your love, and your faith; and we appreciate you today.Happy Mother's Day Sign pic-wider
