Praise and thanks for mothers

To walk with the Lord and bear much fruit requires one to be less in his own eyes and for God to become more, to reign supremely, and to prevail in one’s every word and deed.

How blessed are those who’ve been nurtured by a Godly woman…one who takes the responsibility of raising her offspring under the guidance of her heavenly Father…who rises up to prepare her family for the day with feeding, clothing, teaching, and caretaking…who honors the Lord in all she does and walks in a manner worthy of him.

A mother’s love often extends beyond her own needs or concerns. Sacrificially, she’ll hold back from herself the last slice of bread, lend her only dollar, drive to the ends of the earth, or stay awake throughout the night, if necessary. She gives and gives until it’s time to give again.

Mothers are God’s special gift to this world. Today, all mothers—grand, foster, and surrogate—are being celebrated. You are a blessing to your children and they are blessed to call you Mother.

Next to Jesus, there is no other love like a mother’s love. Whether here on earth or at home with the Lord, we remember you not only on Mother’s Day but every day with our utmost love and appreciation.
