Mother's Day ♡

Mother's Day is a day set aside to remember and honor our mother's.
There are many "special" mother's who deserve such honor showered with love.
Mother's ~ Step Mother's ~ Grandmother's ~ Great Grandmother's ~ Mother-in-Laws ~
and those who have been a loving Mother figure in the lives of others.
As a mother, we each one walk a path that has been set for us by God, 
and God does nothing without purpose.
He made each of us with a specific purpose in mind.
He also promised to work in us to fulfill that purpose.
What a blessing to know that God is lovingly working specifically in our lives
and in the lives of our children and grandchildren.
I know that my dreams and desires for my daughters and grandsons 
don't even begin to match God's, so I will rest in His purposes for them, 
as well as for what He has for me.

"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead
our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep,
through the blood of the everlasting covenant.
Make you perfect in every good work to do his will,
working in you that which is pleasing in his sight,
through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen."
~ Hebrews 13:20 & 21 ~

♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡

For us mother's, we can go through our daily routine with the hope 
of God's promises found throughout the Scriptures.
We can know that we are able to accomplish what God is calling us to do,
as we seek God and allow Him to draw us into intimacy with Him.
He will show us the areas that need perfecting so we can walk
in obedience to His purpose for our lives as mother's.

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord,
and whose hope the Lord is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,
and shall not see when heat cometh,
but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, 
neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
~ Jeremiah 17: 7 & 8 ~

♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡

We are like trees. Without the life-giving power of Jesus Christ,
we would dry up.
I don't know about you ~ but I really do not wish to dry up!
According to these Scripture verses "we will be a blessed woman"
a happy woman, should we put our hope and trust in the Lord.
In so doing we will "be like trees that are planted next to the water."
Our roots will go deep into the riverbed of God's Word,
drawing the thirst-quenching, life-sustaining truth 
from the flow of His Spirit.
 As a mother/grandmother, that is the desire of my heart.
It will be then that we will "bear fruit" so that our families can be nourished.

As a daughter, my heart is grateful for my mother and grandmother's 
who loved me, cared for me and taught me by their example 
of living out their lives as ladies with a gracious spirit.
As a mother, my heart is grateful for the two daughters God gifted me, 
both unique and beautiful in their own special ways
with their own personalities, creativity and grace.
Lord, you know that I tried, and still try to love them according to their
own personality and needs knowing they are both so
opposite from one another, which makes them
so very beautiful in their own special way.
As a grandmother, my heart is grateful for the four handsome grandsons 
that my daughters have given me through God's goodness to them.
Lord, you know that my prayer as their grandmother 
is to love each one of them just the way they need to be loved
as they too, are unique and have been individually created by You.
It is a privilege to come before You and intercede on behalf of these boys.
Bring them to a place of Salvation and keep their hearts tender for You.
Give them a love for You, Your Word and a desire to obey
and make right choices over wrong in this tainted world. 
Give them a desire to walk before You all the days of their lives. 
As their grandmother, I am not always by their side,
so when they are standing at the crossroads trying to decide
which path to take, please put a person of faith there to point them
in a direction that would be right and pleasing to You.
Watch over and guide them, I pray in Your Precious Name, Amen.

Happy Mother's Day lovely ladies!

To God be the Glory!

Such a lovely prayer and beautiful post for Mother's Day. It truly is a time for sharing love and a celebration of the lives of those special women who have blessed our lives. We are so blessed to be women of God, chosen to nurture and care for the children God brings into our lives, whether through natural birth or through adoption or as a loving caregiver, friend, step-parent, aunt, however way God chooses to use our lives to bless others. What a privilege and joy! Thank you for these words today. Have a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow!!
