A Happy Mother’s Day To All

I want to tell all you mom’s (and others) Happy Mother’s Day…to the dad’s that raise their children; grandparent and aunts and uncles; foster parents and so on..I’m sure I left someone out, I am sorry, you are included here. 🙂

I am glad there is a day to recognize moms…this might be the only day that many moms get the recognition they so de…serve. It is tough being a mom. Many work outside the home. Many are single moms. Some moms are fortunate enough, if they choose to be a stay at home mom. Being a mom is a big order, but God created us women to be just that, a mom and to be the best mom we can be by His grace, as we hope and trust in Him. BUT…mom could not do her job without many other people. Husbands and daddy’s you just didn’t play the role of helping get this child here, but without you, mom can not do her job without your love, help and support. Grandmas, grandpa’s, aunts, uncles, other family and friends…each mom can not do what they do without your prayers and support…however that might be. It is said, in an African proverb, “It takes a village (community) to raise a child,” how true that is. It takes much to bring up a child. (Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.) Moms can only bring up a child with love, prayers and support from the others and by leaning and learning the direction of the Lord for them personally and for their children.

Deuteronomy 6:4-25 tell us how to raise our children, first and formost is to teach them in the Lord and His Word. But it is not just for moms in the raising of them….It speaks to all Israel in this passage, so it took the nation to raise their children. If God saw it as good and right for all Israel to be involved in the family life, how much more do you think we need it now. NO we don’t go around telling moms (parents) what to do and how to raise their children. We first share Jesus…talk about Him and His word, teach the children the ways of the Lord and pray for one anther. So, again, here is to all that raises a child, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY.

Lord bless you and have a very blessed and wonderful Mother’s Day.
