Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things (1 Cor 13:4-7)~ So much in the image of the Lord’s love toward us, there is no better personification of love than that of a mother! Whether still physically here or present with the Lord, no matter what the circumstance, fond memories of the mothers in our lives are what we honor today! With that I thank God for my mother without whom I would not be – what she went through to give me the life I had and make me the man I became, and for all of the women that ‘mothered’ me; those things I can never repay! Thank God for my mother-in-law that brought into the world the woman that I would give my life to and of course my wife, the best choice in God’s plan that could be the mother of my children! Happy Mother’s Day to all of the “Moms” out there. May you have the joy of time and memories of time with your children today as we celebrate you!
