“Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:  many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.  Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”  Proverbs 31: 28-31

     Moms are special!  The meaning of being a mother is virtually endless.  A mother is a protector, disciplinarian and friend.  A mother is a selfless, loving human who must sacrifice many of her wants and needs for the wants and needs of her children.  A mother works hard to make sure her children are equipped with the knowledge, wisdom, skill, and abilities to make decisions in a difficult world.  Being a mother is perhaps the hardest, most demanding yet the most rewarding job a woman will ever experience.  However, the greatest responsibility of a mother is to “train up” their children to be followers of Jesus!

     “Make sure to call mama on Mother’s Day, her birthday and the rest.  You know she’s sitting by the phone wishing you all the best.  She doesn’t want to bother you so she waits for YOU to phone.  She has so much time now, most of it spent alone.  She knows you are very busy now, with work and kids and wife.  She helps you out whenever she can, she is the one who gave you life.  The years go by, so fast they fly; the years just never stop.  She has joined the local church and at local thrift stores she shops.  Luckily you have an organized wife who sends the cards you sign.  You moved away for job prospects not because you wanted to leave her behind.  She quietly lives her life puttering around the yard, thinking of ways she could help you and cherishing your beautiful cards.  Whenever you think of her, please listen and take the time, because I would give everything I have for just five minutes with mine!”  Debbie Leads

     People may not remember many of the things you do in life.  However, when you are the mother God called you to be, your children will never forget the impact you’ve had on them.  Let us pray for our mothers.  Father, thank-you for the millions of mothers who are never in the limelight but raise their children the way you have instructed them.  Thank-you for the mothers who love you and are faithful and true.  You know them and will reward them.  Amen.  Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and to those who have been like a mom to others.
