Word of the Day....May 11. 2014... Happy Mother's Day!!!

Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in 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 bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
 “Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates. Proverbs 31:25-31

When I read this Scripture I realize that we should honor mothers for not what they do, though I don’t believe that there is a harder working woman in the world than a mother.  But that we should honor mothers simply for who they are.  I believe that mothers bring out the grace and glory of our Lord.

That is why when you are watching a football game you see the player mouthing the words “Thank you Mom!!” or “Love you Mom!” No matter how old our children get we are still that safe place where they can come to get a hug, kiss, good advice and unconditional love.  We provide love and care that can be found nowhere else.

When I think of my own Mama now it is with really deep love. The other really great thing is that I can see her through my children, and grandchildren.  In just an expression, their looks, their love of dancing,  favorite foods or the way their eyes sparkle when they laugh.  I think that is one of the greatest gifts that God gives us.  It makes me smile and gives me the blessed assurance that I will see her again someday in Heaven.

So I hope that all of you who are lucky enough to still have your Mother with you, honor her every single day and not just on Mother’s Day. Not because she is the best mother in the whole world, but because she is your mother.  I hope you have a Simply Heavenly Mother’s Day!!!  God bless you!!!
