Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children. (Billy Graham)
Every year we set aside one official day to remember our mothers. For many children, it’s a time to celebrate and to be thankful, for having such a great mom. They think of her kind words, her cheerful smile, and her nourishing care, as she lays down her life for their benefit.
Through her eyes of love, children see her willingness to persevere, her desire to serve, and her humble heart. They appreciate her loving touch, her soothing voice, and her playful gestures because all of them lead to a fulfilled life.
Today, we offer our sincere thanks to every good mother. Their efforts are greatly appreciated, even when they feel tired, and they have nothing more to give. Thank you for giving them life, showing them your ways, and for always being with them, in whatever they do.
We bless every good mother who has chosen to lay down their lives for the sake of their children. We honor them for giving us birth, for nurturing our spirit, and for guiding our steps. Give them your strength, show them your peace, and help them to rest in your amazing love. Amen.
