Summary: This is a sermon that I spoke on Mother’s Day 2008. It is the story of Moses’ mom and how she was also the mom of Miriam and Aaron. I used the acronym CHIC- (She was a woman of: Courage, Humble Surrender, Impartation, and a Continued Legacy). Some of t

Happy Mothers Day!!! I am so excited about Mother’s day…
Mother’s Day is a very special day in which we get to honor mothers.
At this time, we have some guys coming forward with some gifts for our mothers.
So I would like for all of the Mothers and expecting mothers to stand and let us acknowledge you this morning. Let’s give them a hand. When you receive your gift you may be seated.
Seriously, this gift is a little token of appreciation for putting up with the LITTLE BOYS IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD… As well, as putting up with your children also.
We thought about doing the competition style Mother’s day giveaways… But decided against it. You know what I am talking about.
When I was young our church would have a gift for EVERY Category of Mothers under the sun.
The Youngest Mother, The Oldest Mother, The Mother with the Most Kid’s, The Mother wearing silver earnings, The mother with curly hair, The mother whose kid had lost a tooth…
At least it seemed like that…
TRUE STORY- When I was a kid my family had this unspoken rivalry when it came to Mother’s Day. My mother had SIX children and there was this other lady in the church that had like FIVE. And every mothers day we would all start coming in from Sunday School and you could tell the lady with FIVE kids was counting and Secretly HOPING one or more of us children where out sick so that she could win the Mother’s Day Finger Nail File with a Scripture on it. But every year we would win…
So for the sake of UNITY we decided against the competitive route, and instead we are giving gifts to each mother and expecting mother.
Can I tell you the REAL reason we are not going to do the Category Competition… Because my Mother In Law attends this church and I still have to see her on a regular basis, and did not want any problems when we got to the OLDEST MOTHER CATEGORY…
Today is the day we get to honor mom. We get to recognize you for all that you DO and all that you ARE.
Let’s face it guys, Mothers have a tough job don’t they.
Perhaps you heard about the young father who was trying to explain the concept of marriage to his 4-year-old daughter. He got out their wedding album, thinking visual images would help, and explained the entire wedding service to her. When he was finished, he asked if she had any questions. She pointed to a picture of the wedding party and asked, “Daddy, is that when mommy came to work for us?”
Seriously, you ladies amaze me with all that you do.
And Men, you know as well as I do that any functionality or success that you experience at home is not because of you but because of your wife…
~ It is like the CEO of a major company who was driving with his wife to visit her parents in her home town. They pulled over to a gas station to get gas a few miles from the parents house. And the gas station attendant came up to the window and recognized the wife and said- “Wow, Sarah it has been a long time how have you been…” and they struck up a conversation never bothering to introduce the husband.
