Then, just before I turned eight, a family with 5 kids of their own took my two sisters and me into their home. My new mothers name was Gerrie. She is my mother to this day. Thanks mom for all that you did for us kids, I appreciate your sacrifice, your effort, your hatred of injustice, your love for the Lord and your example of a pastors wife who always gave to others without expecting a return. Heck, you even taught me how to make macaroni n cheese and how to bake a cake.
Thank you . . . although you didnt birth me you always treated me as one of your own. I am and will forever be grateful to you. Happy Mothers Day!
As a kid, in my new foster home, my two sisters and I asked Jesus to be Lord of our lives as soon as we understood the Gospel. One of our first questions after that was:
I remember Cindy coming out of the bedroom with a small Gideon New Testament in her hand expressing her joy and excitement in what had been written by our mother on the inside back cover.
Yes, we will be overwhelmed by Gods glory and goodness. We will worship Him forever. We will also be able to finally meet this great cloud of witnesses the writer in Hebrews describes. I cant wait for it all!
So, thanks mom. Thanks for who you were, how you protected me, how you taught me, and how you loved me. You knew you were dying and you stayed with us as a normal mother to the very end. Im looking forward to seeing you again. And while were being all mushy and stuff
. . . I just want to say that Im sorry for:
Happy Mothers Day mom . . .
Thanks friends for letting me share. Please do something out of the ordinary for your mom this weekend. If your mom is not around anymore, find a way to honor her. The Bible says to honor your father and mother it doesnt say until youre 18 or while theyre living or if theyre perfect it simply says: Honor Your Father and Mother. Lets do that, what dya say?
Love you all,
Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and so that you may prosper.
Happy Mothers Day mom . . .

Interesting word honor.
Probably means a lot more than just "call and send flowers," or "be kind to."
This scripture passage is worthy of reflection, prayer and meditation, IMHO.
That is just beautiful, and this author has a very beautiful sister too!
Beautiful! Reading this brought tears to my eyes. I need to go call my mother.....
It is a beautiful tribute.
And to KNOW, as a CHRISTIAN, that ALL believers in the Lord will get a room (or mansion) and that we ALL will be on the same level with Jesus.
John 14:1-6 (nasb)
Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
In My Fathers house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.
And you know the way where I am going.
Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?
Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Hebrews 2:9-11 (esv)
But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering. For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one origin. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers
