On this day we honor our mothers with love and gratitude, recognizing that each one is a precious, vital, and irreplaceable gift of God to humanity. We congratulate women, who may have not given birth to a child, yet true mothers who have made a difference in the lives of kids, teens, and young adults. You are treasured, loved, and not forgotten. Your commitment and dedication to service and ministry are noticed and very valuable to us and to God. Without you, our world, communities, schools, and churches could not be.
We also cherish the great memories of mothers, who gave us so much love for many years, and are no longer physically with us. We miss them and long for the Second Coming of Jesus, when we will see them face to face.
Today, we pray for comfort for our mothers who will not receive a hug, a gift, or hear the words “I love you” from a child that has passed away. We pray that our merciful and compassionate God will embrace you with His love and peace, and the hope of a better day.
Together we would like to call on sons and daughters everywhere, to love, respect, and be the Eyes, Heart, Hands, and Feet of Jesus to moms, not only on Mother’s Day but every single day. We also call on each mother to be an example of love, truth, and faith to the children and grandchildren that God has put under your care. That this verse, which was written to Timothy, can also be true in your lives and the lives of your children: “I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.” (II Timothy 1:5)
With lots of love today and always!!!
