What an absolute honor it is to have children. Challenging and sometimes downright brutal, I would not trade it for anything. I know that I would not have survived this journey was it not for my own momma and all the dedicated women in my life. These gals have taught me what it means to truly live and love. In them I have seen the good side win, often. Their grace and humility constantly amazes me.
To our church momma, Zan (Sandra), thank you for letting love win every time, for pursuing His heart for your children and community, for your pure outlook and your grace under pressure. We honor you as a team and as family.
Mamas, THANK YOU!! We celebrate you, today. Our prayer for you is that your heart will ever beat to the rhythm of His love for you. May you abound in favor. May you know, daily, that His grace is sufficient for every trial and difficulty. May His perfect love quiet every fear you have concerning the future, His tender mercies make every morning beautiful with new hope. May you know what it means to be truly loved by Him, and may your heart be filled with fulfillment as you become satisfied by the truth of His affections for you.
You are the best mommy your child could ever need. His plans for your parenting are good and perfect- rest in knowing this. He loves you. He has been right next to you through it all. You are ENOUGH. Be kind to yourself, your children need you to be around for a long while, still. We salute you for every sacrifice and all the support you so willingly give without complaining, always friendly and willing. No tear goes unnoticed, He knows your name, He knows your face. Your children were given you for a purpose, your good Father has got this. His ears are inclined to the outcry of your heart, every prayer He hears and understands. He has seen every tear and each battle. Today I need you to hear this! He loves them and understands a mothers heart. He gets YOU.
You are worth so much. We honor you, dear Mama, for denying yourself for the sake of your children, for setting an example of true humility and cultivating a home full of love and acceptance. Thank you for always being available. Thank you for loving, persevering, praying, yielding. THANK YOU for being YOU!!
Psalm 46:5 God is within her, she will not fall…
Proverbs 31:26 – 31 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
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.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
