It’s my beautiful mother’s birthday today, and I just want to tell everyone what a wonderful woman and mom she is!! She is 76 today (sorry, mom, if you wanted that secret!), but she hasn’t let her age keep her from serving the Lord with the same fulness of many who are much younger. Though a widow now for 6 years, she has not dipped into the well of self pity or sorrow, she has not allowed sadness or bitterness rule her life. Rather, she loves the Lord with all her heart, and serves Him with gladness in His courts! Here are just some of her godly traits, to be honoured and praised:
She prays for me and her family every day
She prays everyday in her church for the needs there
She writes over 50 missionaries and their families every month
She leads a “widow” Bible study in her house every week
She loves to sing and praise the Lord
She serves on the Mission Committe at her church
She writes children’s Bible stories
She started a Puppet Ministry for children in city homes and shelters, as well as for seniors in nursing homes and senior day care centers. And she has a lot of help from several others in the 70s and 80s!!
And, she loves me!
I pray I can find new ways to love and honour her. Thank you for allowing me to do so here today!! I love you, MOM!!!!
