"The Stages Of Motherhood"
4 Years Of Age - My Mommy can do anything;
8 Years Of Age - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot
12 Years Of Age - My Mother doesn’t really know quite everything.
14 Years Of Age - Naturally, Mother doesn’t know that, either
16 Years Of Age - Mother? She’s hopelessly old-fashioned
18 Years Of Age - That old woman? She’s way out of date
25 Years Of Age - Well, she might know a little bit about it
35 Years Of Age - Before we decide, let’s get Mom’s opinion
45 Years Of Age - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it
65 Years Of Age - Wish I could talk it over with Mom
"The Hand That Rocks The Cradle"
They say that man is mighty
He governs land and sea;
He wields a mighty scepter
On lower powers than he.
But mightier power and stronger
Man from his throne has hurled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is that hand that rules the world.
Julia Ward Howe, at age ninety-one, said: "We talk of forty horse-power, but if we had forty
mother-power it would be the most wonderful force in the world."
"At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!"
When you think about what Jesus is saying you can see the heart of a mother.

Momma loves her baby
This morning I want to honor the Mothers that are in this place
I want to tell you that you have been placed by God
You have been called for a great purpose
The nurturing that comes from your heart tells the wayward child there is still hope
The warmth that comes from your smile tells a child that even if they have failed miserably in every thing they have tried...I still believe in you.
It is that warmth from a mothers heart that makes a child feel loved & not despised
It is that caring touch from your hand that can calm the storm
There are many preachers that are preaching because...momma prayed
There are many singers singing about the King of Kings because....grandma wouldn’t give up
Why?....because a mother
Never gives up
Never loses hope
Always tries to see the best
The Woman Is
The one who seeks to keep balance in the family
Eve was to be a help meet
That means she was going to help Adam balance his duties
Eve was to be a companion
That means she was going to help Adam balance his emotions
The Woman Completes The Man “the 2 shall become one”
The Motherhood of America Under Attack
We Are In A Society Today
That has attempted to assassinate the hope of a mother
By taking the father out of the home
By replacing covering of love with the perversion of lust
Trying to be the provider and the nurturer, but with no covering
Mary In the “Passion of Christ”
