(28)Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: (29)“many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” (30)Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. (31)Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. (Proverbs 31:28-31)
Sometimes you hope what you teach your children sinks in. It takes time and all you can do is wait to see if the instructions are heard and followed. This Mother’s Day my wife received some very nice flowers from our two adult sons. I did not remind them or tell them that Mother’s Day was coming. They both live quite a distance away, so we have no family near us. Both of them work and are quite busy with everything going on in their own lives. I appreciate the love they showed their mom. This is not the first time they have blessed their mom and I’m sure it won’t be the last time either.
The flowers from our youngest son arrived on Friday. The flowers from our oldest son arrived on Saturday. There were also nice phone calls and notes. My wife was blessed and happy as only a mom can be. Thoughtfulness never goes out of style. Showing appreciation never gets old. Loving in a practical way is always the greatest of all. I love and am proud of both of my sons. Both of you are good young men.
I hope all of my readers had a good Mother’s Day. Stay faithful and hopeful.
Much GRACE and peace to you,
Bill (a fellow-laborer)
