GETTING READY FOR MOM’S DAY

funny-mothers-day-pictures

There are moms who don’t find much to celebrate on this holiday – those who keep the home fires burning while their husbands are serving their country in far off places; moms who raise their families while dad’s job requires him to travel; moms who have lost a child through miscarriage, illness or tragedy; mothers with special needs children; and those with children that have turned to a life of crime or addiction.

When we give birth. we’re giving life to another human being.  That comes with tremendous responsibility, energy and dedication.  We aren’t always going to be the perfect “Leave it to Beaver” mother.  There are days when our home looks like a tornado went through it.  There are times when we just can’t settle another dispute between siblings or we just don’t have time to get out of our sweats and put on some makeup.  We may feel unappreciated, misunderstood, frustrated or unable to do it all. There are moments when we just plain get tired of the job, but we go on.

Motherhood is one of the most under-rated professions known to mankind.  Moms are purveyors of comfort, deliverers of love and encouragement, merchants of morality and learning, solicitors of peace and understanding.  They are the vessel of God’s handiwork.  Mother’s need a pat on the back each and every day of the year!

Psalm 139:13, “For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”

Don’t wait until Mother’s Day.  Thank your mom today for what she’s given you!

  1. Hi Kathy

    Yes…value what you have now. Forgive and repair old hurts. If we believe, this we should do.

    Do we really want to say after someone passes….”Gosh…I wish i had (fill in the blank) with so and so?

    Life is but a vapor, here for a little while and then gone.

  2. This will be the first time for Mother’s Day I will not be preaching a “Mother’s Day” sermon. I’m tired of the complaining.

    • Who complains?

      • Women who do not have children. Women who’ve had horrible mothers. Millennials who think of the day as nothing more than a commercial gimmick.

        • I guess I never thought of that, but I’m sure there are those that look at this day as just another commercial venue. Maybe you should preach on that. Why has mother’s day turned into such a once a year celebration when it’s something that should be honored every day – even when a mother doesn’t deserve honor, God expects us to place our parents above us.

  3. Amen!
    I am a motherless daughter, I was 15 when she passed. I am grateful to God for who she was and her nurturing. I suppose I learned enough from her in those years – but my heart and soul still ache from her absence. That being said, I know she wasn’t perfect…
    Thank you for quoting Psalm 139!
    – Kenzel
