Summary: A different look at being a mother. Realizing that motherhood is a seed.
Acknowledge all mothers and pray over them.
“History shows almost all the greatest leaders that lived, indeed had mothers!”
PAUL REVERE’S MOTHER: "I don’t care where you think you have to go, young man. Midnight is past your curfew!"
MARY, MARY, QUITE CONTRARY’S MOTHER: "I don’t mind you having a garden, Mary, but does it have to be growing under your bed?"
MONA LISA’S MOTHER: "After all that money your father and I spent on
braces, Mona, that’s the biggest smile you can give us?"
HUMPTY DUMPTY’S MOTHER: "Humpty, If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a hundred times not to sit on that wall. But would you listen to me? Noooo!"
COLUMBUS’ MOTHER: "I don’t care what you’ve discovered, Christopher. You still could have written!"
BABE RUTH’S MOTHER: "Babe, how many times have I told you -- quit
playing ball in the house! That’s the third broken window this week!"
MICHELANGELO’S MOTHER: "Mike, can’t you paint on walls like other
children? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get that stuff off the ceiling?"
NAPOLEON’S MOTHER: "All right, Napoleon. If you aren’t hiding your report card inside your jacket, then take your hand out of there and prove it!"
ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S MOTHER: "Again with the stovepipe hat, Abe? Can’t you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"
BARNEY’S MOTHER: "I realize strained plums are your favorite, Barney, but you’re starting to look a little purple."
MARY’S MOTHER: "I’m not upset that your lamb followed you to school, Mary, but I would like to know how he got a better grade than you."
BATMAN’S MOTHER: "It’s a nice car, Bruce, but do you realize how much the insurance is going to be?"
GOLDILOCKS’ MOTHER: "I’ve got a bill here for a busted chair from the Bear family. You know anything about this, Goldie?"
LITTLE MISS MUFFET’S MOTHER: "Well, all I’ve got to say is if you don’t get off your tuffet and start cleaning your room, there’ll be a lot more spiders around here!"
ALBERT EINSTEIN’S MOTHER: "But, Albert, it’s your senior picture. Can’t you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something...?"
JONAH’S MOTHER: "That’s a nice story, but now tell me where you’ve
really been for the last three days."
SUPERMAN’S MOTHER: "Clark, your father and I have discussed it, and
we’ve decided you can have your own telephone line. Now will you quit
spending so much time in all those phone booths?"
THOMAS EDISON’S MOTHER: "Of course I’m proud that you invented the electric light bulb, Thomas. Now turn off that light and get to bed!"
Every lady has the seed of a mother inside, some feed and water it, some try to destroy it. It is not wrong for a lady to work, or do any number of things, but let’s not begin to think that those things are more valuable than motherhood. If you don’t have any children to mother, find some!
· Some ladies are parents but they do not have a “mother’s heart.”
· Some ladies have a “mother’s heart” but are not a parent.
[Isaiah 49:15] Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for a child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!
