This last Sunday was Mother's Day, a day set apart to honor your mother but every day is a day to honor your mother.
In fact, Call your Mom!
"But it's not mother's day anymore?"
Call your mom! You don't need a holiday or an event to reach out and ask her about her day.
She spent 18(+) years cleaning up after you at least give her a phone call for something other than asking for help.
Proverbs 31:25-30 "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with 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 call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” harm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
Mothers are strong women. They have to take care of themselves and their households while also working a full-time job. A Godly mother is a gift to her children and leads her home towards Him.
Mother's day can be hard for many people. To the children who have lost their mother, it is a reminder of a hole that can never be filled. To the Mothers who have lost a child this day may renew a wound that never truly heals. Whether you were a mother for a day or for years the pain is valid and we stand with you. Reach out in your grief to your husband, to the rest of your family, you do not grieve alone. Even though you have felt lost you yourself are not lost. The Lord provides peace and understanding even through grief.
