Mothers Day

Donna Ball says, “Motherhood is a choice you make every day to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is, … and to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong.”

"Mother’s Day Was Made Official on May 9, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation declaring Mother’s Day an official holiday on May 9, 1914. But the idea began in 1908 when a woman named Anna Jarvis started Mother’s Day to honor her own mom, who had worked tirelessly serving moms after the Civil War. But prior to that Anna’s mother Ann Jarvis wanted to foster friendship and community between the mothers on both sides of the Civil war. She started a committee in 1868 which established the first glimmer of today's holiday: "Mother's Friendship Day.""

Proverbs 31:31: "Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."

This is one way Anna sought to honor her mother. It became so important to others, so it became a holiday. Remember to honor your mother.

"Mother’s Day is the Third Most-Attended Church Service. Easter and Christmas yield large church attendance crowds, but something about mom makes people want to show reverence and focus on faith and family. Many Americans will start their Mother’s Day celebration by attending church with their moms, making Mother’s Day the third most-attended church service behind Easter and Christmas!"

Deuteronomy 4:9: "Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them."

With this fact that we read I think we can tie it to this scripture because our children are watching us and the fact that Mother’s Day is the 3rd most attended church services show how much mothers and their walk with God is seen and respected by their children regardless of where everyone is in life.

Proverbs 31:25-29 – “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: ‘There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!’”
