The Sunday Message

Happy Mother’s Day!

She is strong and is respected by the people. She looks forward to the future with joy. She speaks wise words and teaches others to be kind. She watches over her family and never wastes her time. Her children speak well of her. Her husband also praises her, saying, “There are many fine women, but you are better than all of them.” Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you, but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.   – Proverbs 31:25-30 (NCV)

Today is the day to honor mothers!

My mother would be 90 years old this month, but she passed away in January 2007. I was able to spend the last two weeks of her life at her bedside. I was there when she took her last breath. I still miss her and my dad every day. My dad died in 1996.

We never really know when the last moment on earth will be for us or our loved ones. It’s important to let those we love know it.

Start with your mother today – call her and if you can visit her. Years from now when you look back on your life, you’ll be glad you took the time to do it.

God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. – Rudyard Kipling
