My Mom

My mom is celebrating her birthday today. I won't give away her age- not that she has anything to be embarrassed about, but I'll play it safe. We'll be celebrating with her on Friday but I wanted to just say how thankful I am the Lord has given me a godly, loving, supportive mom. You cannot imagine what my mom has had to put up with and endure- particularly having to raise three boys!

My son, as much as I love and enjoy him, is a handful so I know that times three it is a testimony to the Lord's grace that she survived us. Truly though my mom has modeled how to be joyful (and even lighthearted) and faithful during both difficulty and prosperity. She has engrained in me to trust the Lord in all matters and to always seek His will in His Word. I love my mom (a great Nana too) and thankful for another year the Lord has provided.

The influence of a godly woman in the lives of the next generation of men, is a power that should not be underestimated. Encourage your mother to mentor young women around her, the world could use some more men like yourself.
