Happy Mother’s Day Weekend to all the mama’s out there. I hope you are all getting the love that you deserve!
One of my favorite writers of old is Elizabeth Prentiss and I love her quote about mothers. When I first read this I immediately thought of my mom. She states,
“On the whole, there is nobody like one’s own mother… I wonder if, after all, mothers are not the best friends there are!”
Those words could not be more perfect for celebrating this weekend. Mom, you are my hero! Thanks for sharing the love of Jesus with me daily, and continually sacrificing your own life to love and care for mine. Jesus gave me the biggest blessing ever when He chose you to be my mom. We are knit together at the heart level with an unbreakable bond.
The last two years, and especially this year has not been easy for us because of my sickness, but with each trial you have handled it with a grace and peace that can only come from the Lord. To see the way you lean on Jesus in the hardest of days is such an example to me and many others. We may have not always handled things perfectly, but the desire of our family has always been to glorify God and shine for Him no matter what comes our way. You have lived that out each day with your words and actions.
Even though we not know what the future holds, and even though our struggles may not end on this earth, we can move ahead with confidence because of the hope we have in Jesus Christ and each other. As a line from our favorite song by For King and Country says,
“So let’s dance a little, laugh a little, and hope a little more.”
P.S. The fur babies of the family — Coco, Lucy, Anne Girl, Rowdy Girl, Tebow, and Sissy love you too! They say thank you for all the wonderful dog treats, walks, and rides you take them on. They live like Kings and Queens because of you!
