Hurrah May! As Spring and Summer ease in, out pops the roses and smiling daffodils and nourishing vegetables. It's also the month where we celebrate our mothers. Mothers are life giving! They are instruments through which God can pour the music of His love. I would hope each of you was blessed by a mother like ours. My Mom was such a woman, such a lover of God, my Dad, and us. Her life was dedicated to being a godly woman. . . memories are such fun~
Memories. . . I remember every evening before Dad got home from work, she would change out of her ‘housedress’ into a nicer dress and fix her hair… when they went out she smelled so yummy, looked so pretty ~ she always did her nails holding them out as she kissed us goodbye ~ because they were not quite dry. She made sure we were dressed right for school and church, she cooked great meals, and was aways ready to help us with problems. She would stay up past midnight to type a paper for us that was due the next day. She encouraged us not to be afraid to try any good interest. She made sure we knew God. She loved the Lord and tried to pass this on to us.
She was kind and loving, and the results of her labor are evident today as I look at my siblings. This day and age it is more difficult to do the same job, but the commitment she built into us has been evident. In this day and age moms often have to work outside the home, but their dedication to family and love covers us all. It keeps us busy, but we are willing to be soccor moms, PTA associates, volunteers, members of Bible Studies, play dates, etc. Our job is a big one!
Today to each Mother I say “congratulations!” May our loving Father God continue to pour His blessings upon you and your families. It is a primary job, a crucial one today!
