Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the days to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband praises her as well: Proverbs 31:25-28
This is what we do:
And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart. Luke 2:51
We treasure all the beauty and wonders of our children. Even those pregnancy moments when we felt such love from within.
This is how we feel:
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4
I have always desired that my children love God. That they desire to walk with Jesus, even when they do not completely understand his ways. That they will carry his light with them always as they travel this earth on their own journeys.
Because I have learned so much throughout my life…even though I’m not above correction and am still continuing to learn:
Hear, my son, your father’s instruction
And do not forsake your mother’s teaching; Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head and ornaments about your neck. Proverbs 1:8,9
And above all:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
LOVE. We love deeply and completely. There is no limit of love within a mother’s heart.
Moms are not perfect by any means. But through the thick and thin and all the bumps and bruising along the way…if you know your mother loves you, that is a blessing.
My mother did not have it easy during my growing up years, but I knew she loved me and my siblings without a doubt. We were her world. And we kept her “together”. I am forever grateful for her. I miss her today and everyday.
Happy Mother’s Day! ♥️
