05 May Mothers: A Special Gift From God
Mothers are one of the sweetest gifts from God to us. They are so unique and super special in their own loving way. Mothers are there for the family 24/7 and their job never ends. Some are the bread winner for the family and at the same time must return home to face even more jobs. Mothers take care of the children, cook, clean, take the children to extra activities related to school clubs and to doctor’s appointments if needed. In addition to the extra load of work at home, some moms have to take care of newborn babies, do homework with the children and of course read bedtime stories from time to time. There are so many wonderful, wonderful things that mothers do for the family and it is only because God has equipped each mother with a gift that is specially made only for moms. In Proverbs 31:25-30 it states that “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many women have done excellently but you surpass them all.” Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers around the world. You are amazing!
