It's Sunday - It's Mother's Day!

Today it’s Mother’s Day And I want my mom to know how Thankful and Blessed I am to have her in my life.

I Love You, Mom!

Roses are the perfect symbol of beauty and the feelings of love for the recipient. The elegant beauty of these flowers is a reminder of the women who gave us life-our mothers.

From the day we were conceived, the lives of our mothers changed.

Their bodies were no longer theirs alone but were willingly and joyfully shared with us. When their bodies are their own, our mothers may love themselves and take care of themselves. Or, they may not really care too much if they eat too many sweets and pay no attention to their nutritional needs. However, when our mothers carried us in the protected place of the womb, they gave up some things. They cared about the things they ingested and what they did with their bodies. Their love for us was and is stronger for us than for themselves.

From the day we were born, our mothers sacrificially nurtured us, setting aside their own life ambitions, desires, and wants. So many mothers are also known for even setting aside some of their own needs. These special women want what’s best for their children, giving them the best start in life that they can offer.

So many of these things go unnoticed until we are older.

As children, we had no comprehension of what sacrificial giving even was. As we’ve grown older, we finally understand a bit more clearly. Furthermore, with many of us having children of our own, we truly realize how special and giving our mothers really are.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
brings to mind all of the things our mothers have walked through with us: “For everything, there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”

She helped shape our thinking in every season of life.

Sadly, the season of death comes to all, and many of us have faced the season of losing our mothers. Her influence lives on, and we’ll miss her until we face our time to leave this life.

Proverbs 31:28-29 speaks for so many of us, and we can keep the memory of our mothers alive in our hearts forever. “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”

Thank God for our wonderful mothers!
