Mother’s Day 2011
A quick hello to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day.
This is my Momma, my Grandmother (both are in Heaven now), Me and my Girls — it’s been a while 🙂 As close as I can date it is the Summer of 1984.

Titus 2:(New American Standard Bible)
3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good,
4 so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.

So! A big Happy Mother’s Day! to each of you!!
And even if you, yourself are not officially a mother, please KNOW that GOD esteems YOU and He has young lives for YOU to sow His love into, look around and I promise you will find them. (See John 4:35)
ABBA, thank You for setting up life the way You did – Fathers, Mothers and Children. And, HOLY SPIRIT, I pray You will minister to the hearts of Mothers, Children and Fathers, particularly those who come to read and pray at this page. There are hearts needing comfort as Mother’s Day is celebrated. Some hearts are yet so broken because a Mother or a child is missing from view — it’s hard, ABBA. But You know, You know like no one else and You like no one else can comfort and heal. I pray every hurting heart will receive Your Comfort this day. And along with Your Comfort, I pray for Your Joy to be full in us for truly, LORD, You have given more than enough to cause us to worship You. Amen and amen.
Celebrating in HIS Name,
