Mother’s Day is a day “to express respect, honor, and love towards mothers. The day is an event to honor the contribution of mothers, acknowledge the efforts of maternal bonds and the role of mothers in our society.” Although this is the reason why mother’s day is celebrated, it can also amplify either happiness or sadness for some.
For some its a melancholy day, a day that makes you long for the chance to see your mother once more.
Some are expecting to be a mom and can’t wait to be called such a sweet name and there are those that have never known there mom. They clasp onto the memories heard by others, hanging onto their every word, embracing it as the only imaginative memory that they will ever have.
YOU ARE LOVED BY GOD
Mother’s Day, this day, it means something to all of us. Although it only lasts for one day, it can stir up so many different emotions that can leave a lasting effect of veiled memories. Whatever this day means to you, irregardless if you are able to pick up a phone and call your mom or not, know that you are loved. “As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.” -Isaiah 66:13 This was a maternal promise that was prompted by God for Isaiah to tell Israel. That maternal comfort is the same comfort that God our father will give to us when we feel lonely and sad.
Mother’s Day recognizes the strength and resilience that it takes to carry the title. In a recent post, you can discover the many roles that mommy’s have to play.
REFLECT IN THE PRESENT
I would like to take take an opportunity to acknowledge my mother, my friend. There are so many wonderful things I can say about my mom. Growing up and reflecting back over my life, it’s evident that it takes a strong woman to raise an even stronger woman.
There were times that I didn’t understand the decisions that my mother made, but she made them nonetheless and for the better, for her children.
My mom is an example that I can honor. She lives her life in a way that inspires me to be the same and even more for my own children. The grace that she exemplifies is a silhouette, which has given her opportunity to reflect humility and kindness. The love that my mother shows and continues to give -not only for me but for all of those around her- is a sounding demonstration of the devout woman that she is. Always placing her trust in the Lord. This God-fearing woman has been by my side with all three of my children, she prays for me, she has dried my tears, and cradled me in her arms.
I rise up and call her blessed. I rise up and call her MOM.
i say to all the mothers…..
I say to all the mothers, in whatever capacity and role you play as a mom, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! This is recognized as one national day but your love, guidance, and affection lasts a lifetime.
