You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

I always have mixed emotions about Mother's Day. It is a happy day and also a sad day. I remember when I was much younger my mom told me that on Mother's Day mothers wore a red rose if their mother was alive and a white one if she was not still alive. I haven't heard that theory in many years. I do remember being happy that my mom was still alive. Now she has been gone for almost 20 years. Where did the time go? Of course I still miss her. She was such a positive influence on my life. Now, my hubby and my two children have made every Mother's Day extra special for me. I will enjoy this one immensely. Yes, I'm sad my mom is no longer with us, and I know there are many other women who are sad this Mother's Day. I think especially of those who never had any children to call them mother. I like the way our Pastor includes all women when honoring mothers of Mother's Day whether they are mothers or not. Maybe it would be good to call it Women's Day.

Now it's time to share again. I do wish each woman who comes here a Happy Mother's Day or Happy Women's Day whichever you prefer.

  1. I'm so thankful that my mother is still alive and I can talk/text with her every day if I choose. I know time is ticking by, so I treasure those interactions now more than ever. Still, I know that when her time does come to pass on to the other side, she'll be waiting for me until I join her. I praise God for a mother who knows the Lord!

  2. I remember making red and white flower corsages for Mother's Day as a teenager, the Pentecostal church I went celebrated mothers and gave out hanging baskets, of course some services were sad, sometimes I think in purpose, the main thing is to celebrate that love. enjoy your good memories and Happy Mother's Day Charlotte.
