Remembering Mom

Posted: Wednesday, May 7, 2014 in Culture, Pastoral, Seasonal

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we would do well to remember what moms endure for the sake of their children. My parents divorced when I was 14 years-old and my mother reared two boys through teen years and beyond. She never griped, never grumbled, never demanded. She just loved – sometimes when me and my brother were not very lovable. She did without so that we didn’t. She gave when she didn’t have to give.

Mom went to be with the Lord in 2003. She loved and served to the very end. In fact, it was her love for others that kept her hanging onto this life. I am thankful for her, and thankful that she is worshiping our great God and Savior face to face.

I realize that this is not the testimony of some. Some had a mom that died when they were young. Some had mom’s that gave them away. Some had mom’s that wish they had given them away. They never experienced the selfless love of a nurturing mother. I pray that the Lord would give you strength, give you wisdom, give you the will to break the cycle. Be the mother or father that your’s was not. Pray for your parents if they are still living.

And if you have been neglectful in showing your love for mom and failed to thank her for her love – then do what you need to do while you still have days to do so.
