Of My Mother

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Proverbs 31:26-31

Yesterday was Mother's Day, a day we set aside for showing our mothers just how important they are in our lives and how much they mean to us. Therefore, I wish to post today about my wonderful mother, a woman who has given her entire life to serving her Lord, her husband, and her children. Throughout my life, she has been my caretaker, confidante, mentor, and friend. As the verses above states, she opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness os on her tongue.

Thank you so much, Mommy, for all that you've taught me over the years. I love you so much!
