I cannot find to the words to express how I feel about the women in my life. God blessed me with a loving, tender & godly mother. Most of you can say the same about your own mothers. In addition to our mother’s, most of us have been blessed with other amazing women who have influenced us for good. So today I want to salute all women who have mentored, nurtured, encouraged and taught all of us how to live, how to love, and how to serve the Lord. However, since today is Mother’s Day, we will share with you some statements others have written about God’s sacred servants that are called… “Mothers.”
Happy Mother’s Day
One lady beautifully wrote…
Motherhood is more than a stage—it’s a lifelong calling from God. With it He gives us hearts that love deeply, hands that serve tirelessly, and vision to see His blossoming image in the precious ones entrusted to our care.
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
– Washington Irving (1783-1859 – author of “Rip Van Winkle” & “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”)
When you are a mother you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always thinks twice, once for herself and once for her child.
– Sophia Loren
When your mother asks, ‘Do you want a piece of advice?’ it’s a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.
– Erma Bombeck
Mother is the heartbeat in the home; and without her, there seems to be no heart throb.
– Leroy Brownlow
Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
– Charles Stanley
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
– Theodore Hesburgh
To the world you are a mother, but to your family you are the world.
If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?
– Milton Berle
A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.
– Tenneva Jordan
Everybody wants to save the Earth; but nobody wants to help Mom do the dishes.
– P.J. O’Rourke
Regarding mothers, Solomon wrote…
Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. (Proverbs 31:25-26 NASB)
