Mother: A woman in relation to her child or children. A woman who brings up a child with care and affection and who loves her child unconditionally. She is a protector, disciplinarian and a friend, all of the things that are a Blessing to us.

So Mother’s Day is upon us and so many have the joy of spending precious time with her celebrating her life and the joy of having her around but there are those of us who have to live with the pain of knowing we won’t be able to personally hug, kiss or tell our mothers how happy we are to still have her here with us today but nevertheless, we all share in the joy of our Mother’s Love, something that we hold near and dear to our hearts. For all of us her love is here with us and it is something that cannot and will not be forgotten.

What does it mean having mom in your life. The answer to that for each of us can be different but for most of us it is the same. It means security, comfort, undying love and that someone who will stand by you through thick and thin but it also means someone who will never accept wrong doing that will put your life in harm’s way. You see for a mother, when her child hurts in any way, she hurts even more. She is a person that knows when things are wrong even though she is no where around, she is a person who sees the pain in her child’s face even when we try to hide it and she is that person who knows when you’re lying even though you may stand face to face with her and swear to honesty. This is the same person who loves you through both physical and mental pain because that is the bond a mother has with her child, a bond that cannot be broken. Oh how sweet it is to have a Mother like this.

God’s Love is the greatest love of all and a Mother’s Love is a reflection of His Love so from God comes our Mother’s Love a beautiful and loving gift that He has bestowed upon us.  He chose to give us someone here on earth to show us just a little bit of how much He loves us. What love is deeper than those!! The Bible says, My child obey your Father’s Godly instruction and follow your mother’s life-giving teaching. Fill your heart with her advice and let your life be shaped by what she has taught you. A mother’s teaching is to be prized. So how Blessed we are to have someone who will lead and guide us in the ways that God wants us to be taught. What a Blessing to have 2 of the best loves that can ever be given.

So as you embark on your day of celebration with your mothers, my prayer is that you have the most precious day that God has for each of you.  May He continue to Bless your union because there is nothing like time spent with the woman who knows you better than you know yourself. My mother is gone but she is as close to my heart as a mother can be. I miss her so much, she was a praying mother so I know she is in Heaven watching over me. So I honor her with my tears of love on the upcoming Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day.

Embrace God’s Greatest Gift……Life.
