Today is Mothers day and I would like to give honor where honor is due and that’s to all the Godly Mothers and also Grand Mothers.
The Bible says in:
Pr 6:20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
Pr 6:21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
Pr 6:22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
Pr 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948) first suggested the national observance of an annual day honoring all mothers because she had loved her own mother so dearly. At a memorial service for her mother on May 10, 1908, Miss Jarvis gave a carnation (her mother’s favorite flower) to each person who attended. Within he next few years, the idea of a day to honor mothers gained popularity, and Mother’s Day was observed in a number of large cities in the U.S. On May 9, 1914, by an act of Congress, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. He established the day as a time for "public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.? By then it had become customary to wear white carnations to honor departed mothers and red to honor the living, a custom that continues to this day.
Bible says that the law of a Mother shall lead you and shall be a light unto you and you will remember what your Mother taught you through out your life…you young people may not think so but you will remember those acts of love and kindness that your Mom or Grand Mother did when you get older. That’s a love that only comes from our Lord in Heaven.
I want to honer all the Godly Moms out there this morning but, this morning I want to mention and honer 3 that I believe will be a inperation to those of you who are listening.
First is my wife Brenda …I want to thank her for being a good Mother to my sons Keith and Kevin and a loving and insperatiual Grand Mother to our 4 grand children. God will honer her one day for her love and kindness and her Godly infulance.
I want to give honer in remerance to my Mom who died in April of 1993 with cancer.
Shortly before Dad died in 2004 my brother Everette and I found a poem in an old compostion book that Mama had written years ago when my 2 brothers and I were just young.
It was written in her on hand writing and touches my heart each time I read it .
Our Mom was always an Godly insperation in our life and I believe finding that poem so many years later was a way of God telling me….your Mother knows about the change in your life…your Mom knows how God changed your whole family and now is serving Him.
My Mom will meet me on the shores of Heaven one day when this life is done.
What a joyeous time that will be for sons and daughters to be reunited with their Mom that has gone on to be with the Lord
I would like to read that poem and it goes as follows:……by Reva Miller
A Mothers Secret For Success
When in the morning I wash my children, I prayed that they might be washed by the Saviours precious blood.
When I put on their garments, I prayed that they might be arrayed by the garments of salvation in the robe of Gods righteousness.
When I give them food, I prayed that they might be feed with the bread of life.
When I started them on the road to school, I prayed that their faith might be as a shining light brighter and brighter to the perfect day.
When I put them to sleep, I prayed that they might be enfolded in the Saviours everlasting arms. Reva Miller
What a presious thing for God to do in preserving that until the appointed time.
You know Folks, it’s the unselfess love of a Mother and a concern for her childrens well being that causes prayers to be answerd. A Godly Mothers prayers for her children I believe takes priroity in Heaven.
Mama was never that out spoken about her faith but, we all knew that she love the Lord it was the little things that she would say that made her a shing light fopr Christ. The Bible is saying in Provers chapter 6 that forsake not the law of the Mother in verse 20 and the law is the light in verse 23
