Mother's Day Reflections... And A Song

"Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
'Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.'
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
(Proverbs 31:28-30)

Motherhood is one of the best ways that God teaches us selflessness.
It's a journey for all of us, 
and we are blessed
when we embrace our God-given role as mothers
and live it out. 

I live grateful for my mother and keenly aware of the impact 
her love, wisdom, and example had on my life, 
my brother's life, and so many others.

I, too, aspire to leave a legacy of love and blessing for my children, 
recognizing that only to the extent that I show them God
and reflect His love and His wisdom
will I impart the greatest treasure anybody can possess.

May God help us live into what it means to be a blessing to our children.
May we be parents who leave behind eternal riches.

Happy Mother's Day!
