Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day!  A day to honor mothers!

I am married to a mother!  She, of course, is my wife . . . my partner!  But above all, her role as a mother exceeds all!

She has touched thousands of lives through the years.  There are testimonies from so many people who share how she has influenced their lives.  It is that mother’s heart that has been expressed to so many.

But her influence on the world is enlarged through her own children. We are blessed with three special children, and her investment of love, care, and example has truly shaped their lives.  Through her children her influence continues to touch lives of individuals she may never know.  Certainly, this is one of the greatest evidences of a mother’s love and influence.

Those who know our children are aware of how they are touching lives!  Children reflect the spirit and example of their mother!  Of course, I am aware that all mothers strive . . . labor . . .,  yet some get their hearts broken.

With gratitude, our children responded to a mother’s teachings through example and communication.

Consider our oldest.  Losing her vision at age 15, yet touches lives around the world through her national events, author of 10 books,  composer, musician, singer, and inspirational speaker.

The oldest son.  Director of Counseling at a major university.  Seeking to give positive direction to young lives that will be influencing our society in the years to come.  And, the leader of a faith-based organization on campus.

The youngest son.  A U.S. Congressman with a commitment to change America with conservative values and ideals. A man of integrity and principle.

Children don’t just grow and develop without someone mentoring, shaping, and impacting their lives.  Here are three children . . . reflections of a mother.  Mothers have no competitors when it comes to influencing the world through their children.  A statesman, many years ago, said, “Give me a handful of mothers who are committed to the Lord, and we will change the world!”  Indeed, it is true!

And that is the secret!  ” . . . committed to the Lord . . . .”  It is the strength of the Lord that gives direction and wisdom in lives.  Godly mothers!  What this world needs!  I am blessed to be married to such a lady!  Her approach to motherhood is no secret.  It is obvious . . . her faith and dependence on God.  And God has honored her commitment.

May God bless all mothers today and everyday!

And may my wife and the mother of my children know how she is honored on this day!  For I honor My Love this day with gratitude that is beyond expression for the marvelous mother you are! I love you!

“Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.  Many women do noble things but you surpass them all. . . .  a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise . . .  .”  (Proverbs 31:28-31)
