Happy Mother's Day

Women were created with special graces to fulfill roles that most intimately reveal God's nature to us.  When aligned with the will of God, a mother will paint the first picture of God's perfect love for His children.

I Corinthians 13:7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

A mother has the opportunity to build up entire lives by her daily words and actions.  It’s a tremendous responsibility.  It's an incredible honor. 

Joined with our Creator in the breath-taking and awe-inspiring act of giving life, she also walks with God in shaping and molding that most precious child.

Patience, kindness and  gentleness.  These are the fruits of the spirit each mother displays as she raises her little ones.  So enamored by her children she will give them all she has to see them do well.

So is our heavenly Father's unconditional and unfailing love for each of his sons and daughters.  Next to that of God, there is no greater gift or blessing we can receive than the unconditional love of a mother.  In the knowledge and confidence of such love and support, every child is enabled to face the giants of life and achieve the greatest of accomplishments.

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed.  Proverbs 31:26-28
