Thanks Mom!

Mark Office

Greetings In The Name of The Lord:

Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live (Gen. 3:20, NLT).

Mother’s Day is a day of great celebration. It is a day when we thank God for giving us our Mom, and we thank her for all that she does and has done for us. For some of us, however, who no longer have our Mom’s with us it can be a day of sadness. Yet we have a choice, we can be sad that she is no longer with us, or we can be thankful that we had a wonderful Mother to be missed. I think this following poem tells it all. My mother taught me RELIGION: When I spilled grape juice on the carpet, she instructed, “You better pray the stain will come out of the carpet.”

My mother taught me LOGIC: From her decisive words, “Because I said so, that’s why.”

My mother taught me FORESIGHT: “Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

My mother taught me IRONY: “Keep laughing, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

My mother taught me about STAMINA: “You’ll sit there ’til all that spinach is finished.”

My mother taught me about WEATHER: “It looks as if a tornado swept through your room.”

My mother taught me THE CIRCLE OF LIFE: “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.”

My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION: “Stop acting like your father!”

My mother taught me about ENVY: “There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don’t have a wonderful Mom like you do!”

THANKS, MOM! To all the Mom’s, with us or not, thank you! Happy Mother’s Day!

 

In Christ,

Pastor Mark
