How do you put a price on her tender touch, constant care, sweet smile, and lasting love? A mother’s work is difficult, influence is great, love is strong, care is essential, wisdom is needed, character is crucial, and value is immense. So how can you possibly express your true feelings? We look for cards that are meaningful and gifts that are impressive, yet we know when all is said and done we haven’t done nearly enough to give her what she truly deserves. There is simply no way to repay a godly mother for her contribution to the world. She is deprived of what she deserves. Yet they love us. That’s the marvel of mothers!
Although mothers shine bright in a lot of ways, perhaps they shins brightest in the fact that they keep going when there seems to be every reason to quit. They do what they do out of love, not for reward. They continue to love us although we keep failing them. Although they appreciate our expressions of love they keep loving us when we fail to provide it. Over-worked and under appreciated they go above and beyond they duty, caring for others who fail to care for them. And that makes them all the more deserving of the best we can give. Not being able to give them all they deserve doesn’t mean we can’t give them the best we’ve got.
It is a terrible thing to think about those poor souls who have been deprived of having a godly mother, and there are many–far more than there should be. So if you are one of those who are blessed with a godly mother please do everything in your power to show her that you you love and appreciate her every day of the year. Remember, some have never had the privilege and others live each day with only the memories of their dear mother who has departed this life. You have the privilege of her presence, take advantage of it while you can. Show her how blessed you are by being a blessing to her.
If you are a mother I pray that someone will do something to make this Mother’s Day a very special time in your life. You will never receive all you deserve in this world, but God will not fail to reward you for all you’ve done. It’s just a matter of time!
Happy Mother’s Day!
