“Your Mother”Categories: Minister's Corner
Your mother, after experiencing so much pain and discomfort, was the first one to hold, love and kiss your sweet face as you entered into the world. Your mother loved, nurtured and helped mold you into the person you are today. She looked after you, bathed you, cleaned up after you, cooked for you, washed your clothes and comforted you after the tears and heartaches. Your Mother guided you, hugged you, advised you and worked with you through the classroom difficulties. Your Mother taught you the word of God personally with her example and also with the word of God. You are precious to your mother! She endured many nights of worry, prayer and pacing the floor over you and all because of the love that grew and continues to grow in her heart for you. She was in the stands cheering you on with pride. She shared your successes and accomplishments with anyone who would listen. She will watch you walk the aisle in marriage knowing that you have given your heart to another and she will be okay with it because she loves her/him too. Your Mother will hold, love and kiss the sweet face of your children … her grandchildren and the cycle will continue because she is your mother. Honor your mom while you can because she won’t always be around to hear you say … I LOVE YOU.
“4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends…” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
