Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, a day set aside to celebrate mother’s love.
Whenever we look at ourselves, we can see the legacy our mothers have left in our lives. We have been deeply affected by our mother’s love, by her devotion, and by her prayers. As we grow old, we remember the encouragement we received from our mothers and we mold our lives by her words of wisdom.
Some people are blessed on this Mother’s Day by having their mothers with them. If you are one of those persons, be sure to let your mother know on this Mother’s Day that you love her. If your mother is no longer alive, pause for a moment, pray a prayer of thanksgiving, and honor the memory and the legacy your mother has left behind.
Whether your mother is still living or not, Mother’s Day is a day for all us to recognize the unconditional love we have received from our mothers. If you are an adopted child, on this Mother’s Day remember how blessed you are. You have been chosen to be part of a family. You have been chosen to be loved and to receive unconditional love from a woman who calls herself your mother.
To honor mothers, every year I write a post honoring the mothers of the Old Testament. Tomorrow, on Mother’s Day, I will honor Moses’ two mothers. Moses was a blessed man because he had two mothers, two mothers who loved him, two mothers who made sacrifices in order for their son to live. Visit my blog tomorrow and read more about “Moses’ Two Mothers.”
If you want to read more about the mothers and the grandmothers of the Old Testament, you can do so by visiting my post, “Studies on Old Testament Mothers.”
Happy Mother’s Day.
