We are so grateful for the blessing Mom is in our lives. She has truly poured out herself “a living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1) on our behalf. Although the years of raising us children were long and sometimes difficult, she is now reaping rewards through the fruit of our walk with the Lord Jesus and how we live our lives.
Romans 12:1: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Mom does this daily. She delights in growing and strengthening her walk with the Lord by spending time in God’s Word, prayer, and memorization; she helps my grandparents; she is an incredible Titus 2 homemaker; she blesses Dad in whatever ways she can; she grocery shops for three households every week; she keeps our family calendar updated; she is an awesome planner; she delights in the Titus2 ministry; she faithfully prays for many people; she encourages ladies in the vein of Titus 2; she loves her family; and I’ll stop there.
Happy Mother’s Day to an incredible Mom! We can honestly rise up and call Mom blessed, as Proverbs 31 describes a woman who fears the Lord. In addition, a special Happy Mother’s Day to my two very pregnant sister-in-laws.
A special hug to those who have lost a child. Mrs. Deana, I think of you, losing your only son about a year ago. How my heart aches with yours. I think of three families who have lost babies in the past few months. Amy E.’s testimony was featured in this month’s May Corner, which if you haven’t read it, please do so. It is a powerful, moving testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness.
My heart aches for the wives who have never been able to bear a child and who desire for their empty arms to be filled. May you be like Hannah, who cried out to the Lord. “For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him.” 1 Samuel 1:27
