This mother's day ....

..... be thankful for your mother if she is living. My mom passed away suddenly when i was 25 yrs old and my dear mother-in-law took her place for the next almost 30 yrs. My mother-in-law was a great example of the Proverbs 31 woman.

My sister-in-law has been in my life for over 40 years now and has been there for me through thick and thin. I could not love her more if she was my own sister or mother and she has been a great example to me of sacrifical love for her family and for the Lord.

I am also very thankful for and proud of my two daughters-in-law who are both wonderful mothers and have blessed me with the opportunity to be a grandmother.

So many women over the years have served as spiritual mentors to me and for this I am deeply grateful. One of the closest was a lady by the name of Gay Mize (sister to Paul Robinson) who is now with the Lord. Gay taught me how to care for and train up my children and to love the Word of God.

To all the mothers out there, I wish you a blessed Mother's Day !!! And to all the daughters out there, I pray your life is as blessed as mine has been to be surrounded by godly women.
