As Mother’s Day is this coming weekend I want to share with you a poem that describes motherhood so well. 

“A mother’s love is something that no one can explain.

It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain. 

It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may.

For nothing can destroy it or take it away…

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,

and it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking…

It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, 

and it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems…

It is far beyond defining,

it defies all explanations. 

And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation…

A many splendored miracle

man cannot understand 

and another wondrous evidence of God’s tender guiding hand.”

~ Helen Steiner Rice

My mother is the one who shaped my life.

My dad was a highly disciplined man and a great preacher who would do anything including give his life for me, but my mother is the one who held me and daily told me she loved me. 

If Mother’s Day is a difficult day for you, I understand. My mother has gone to be with the Lord and I miss her dearly. I pray that our heavenly Father brings you the peace and comfort only He is able to during this week.

I encourage you if you are able to, to celebrate your mother! Celebrate your wife and all she does for your children, your daughter-in-law, your sister, or friend. Let the mothers in your life know how much you love them and how great they are. 

A mother’s love and sacrifice can often go unnoticed or unappreciated but this week let’s shed light to all that they do!
