May 8th “Mother’s Day -Thank You!”

“The Very Best”

"Well here we are once again and today has been designated “Mother’s Day”! For all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day! You certainly deserve more than an acknowledgement of one day. Pain in child bearing, constant worry, correction and care; unconditional love, guidance, insight and for those of us who have been very fortunate probably the single greatest source of encouragement in life.

Unfortunately for many the role of the mother has drastically changed. Amidst the self generation, meism, and the movement that deprecates the role, we see the entire society changing. With all the pressure to keep up, show off and have everything we see many children being left behind. Being a mother is portrayed as not as important as having a job and having your life.

Obviously the concept of true marriage has been thrown out the window. Big homes, new cars, vacation to who knows where, and the constant rebellion against God’s principal keeps the wave of self and self importance far above the care, nurturing, and development of the family unit.

Mother’s who are godly, who read and study and follow after “seeking first the kingdom” are rare. It is those who still impact their children. They pray constantly for their protection, for God’s leading, for the selection of the right spouse, God’s choice rather than theirs. In fact they take seriously the fact that they are called by God for His purpose and His purposes only. It’s not about them or what they have been told; it’s about bringing honor and glory to God in all their choices.

I praise God for a mother who has been the example of the finest godly women I have ever known. Thank you Lord God for that!! She has been the greatest of mothers, the finest example of godly wives and the most unbelievable, caring, loving individual to all with whom she comes in contact. How rare she is and how thankful I am to have experienced so much of what God is and has because of her!"

“There aren’t enough words or time to tell you of my Mother.
To me there absolutely is no comparison to any other.
She’s given her life to do and follow always God’s lead
Each and every day she’s been careful His words to heed
All I can do is shout with all my heart and soul to you
Thank you for all you have done; thank you for all you do
There is no other who can compare in any way to you
May God continue to honor and bless you!”

“Paintings can tell us a thousand stories but none can compare to a truly godly mother. As you reflect on your own situation, I trust you will honor your relationship with God first. Have a great week!”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
