This Mother's Day Mom is eight months pregnant and feeling miserable with the cold bug, along with most of us. Allergy problems and incessant coughing have kept her up hours the past few nights and yet...I haven't heard her complain once.
She sacrifices daily, investing all her energies...to the very last ounce...in our family. She takes on the challenges of life in the Lord's strength, striving to walk in His joy. She embraces the highest calling for a woman: being a submissive keeper at home. She is daily pouring herself into the next generation...constantly giving, patiently teaching, continually praying, cheerfully encouraging, and selflessly loving. Not because it's easy, but because it's the best job in the world to raise children for God's glory...so His kingdom would be advanced around the world. Her example creates my desire to follow in her footsteps, so His name would be great among the nations!
A simple "thank you" seems insufficient as I just to begin to think on all my wonderful mother has instilled and invested in me!
How true are these words of William Ross Wallace:
"The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world."
We love you, Mom...
And the little man we all can't wait to meet!
"Her children arise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praiseth her!"
