mothers-day

28Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29“Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.” ~ Proverbs 31:28-29 (ESV)

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our Moms out there!  Officially on the calendar, today is Mother’s Day — but in reality, every day should be Mother’s Day!  Today we give Praise and thanks to God for Mothers across the world, spanning this day and age and throughout eternity.

The Bible is filled with incredible Mothers — starting with Eve, continuing through Sarah, then Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, and on and on.  In all of my studies, the one thing I’ve learned is that none of us are perfect, the only perfect one is Jesus, of course, and Mother’s are no exception.  But one thing that is important to remember is that, despite the flaws, despite the frustrations of husbands, children, and life in general, despite all of that, Mother’s across the world still put their families first, and that continues on to this day.

On this Mother’s Day, I wish to leave you with a poem I read yesterday that I think you all will enjoy:

If life were without water, where would we be?
If life were without mothers,
There would be no you or me.
We all need to take hold, of how precious life really is,
and not take for granted the gift of love and the ability to give.
Thank you to God for creating us all
For giving us our mothers
So we can stand proud and tall.
Humans are no accident, no mistake or error
We sometimes live our lives in fear of this,
Even to the point of terror.
But when the truth is told, and recognised by all,
God does not create rubbish. He knew what he was doing when he created
me and you, but the best gift of all, is giving us loving, caring
Mothers who love us unconditionally through and through.
None of us are perfect, that includes ourselves and family.
Hold onto how precious we are and thank God for our mothers.
Amen

Now, please join me in praying the prayer that Jesus taught His Disciples to pray:

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever and ever. Amen.
