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

Mothers are special. God gave mothers a unique "function" to fill. Of course not all women are mothers but all women have/had mothers. My wish for all children is to have a mom as special as mine was. No, she wasn't perfect. Nobody is, but she came pretty close. She went to be with God in 1999. It has been over 18 years and I still miss her, especially on Mother's Day. I remember back in the 1960s women wore corsages to church on Mother's Day. I have special memories of my hubby buying me and my mom corsages as she always visited us on Mother's Day. One year I made her and me dresses that were similar. Hers was yellow, mine was blue. Our corsages matched our dresses. This was just a couple of years after women stopped wearing hats and gloves to church.

Here's a picture of us.

So this Mother's Day, we are all blessed to be able to share our inspirational thoughts. Thank you again for your faithful participation.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free. nd masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him. - Ephesians 6:5-9 (NIV)
