Tribute to Mothers
Happy Mother’s Day! I am very thankful for the joy my role as a mother has brought to me over the years. I feel extremely blessed to carry the title of “Mom.” Now, I not only continue in a mother/friend role, I am blessed to pray for my grandchildren to become the men and women that God has planned for them to be.
I also thank God for a wonderful mother who loved her seven children unconditionally. God graciously put us in her tender love and care. I shall be forever grateful to have been her daughter. As I have said many times, I feel as though my mother was perfect. Even though she passed away in 1990, I can still hear her voice as we spoke on the phone each Sunday afternoon. I know with assurance that someday we will see each other again in heaven. What a reunion that will be!
"She is far more precious than jewels. Her value is far above rubies or pearls. Her children rise up and call her blessed, and her husband praises her. A woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the LORD shall be praised." Proverbs 31:10; 28; 30 (NIV)
