Happy Mother’s day!  Ladies, let us never think of ourselves only as figures who have to raise children, or as figures to be good wives; may we also see ourselves as very important instruments in God’s hands, to be used of Him for His name’s honor and glory.

I thank God every day for a wonderful mother and even though she is thousands of miles away,  on yet another Mothers Day, I can continue to celebrate her love and the influence she has in my life. I can also celebrate the influence in my life of my two beautiful daughters who are also mothers:

A mother’s love is like a fortress…

A mother’s love is like an island …

A mother’s love is a sanctuary…

A mother’s love is like a beacon…

For a mother’s love is fashioned                                                                                                     After God’s enduring love,                                                                                                               It is endless and unfailing                                                                                                                 Like the love of Him above

For God knew in His great wisdom                                                                                               That He couldn’t be everywhere,                                                                                                     So He put His little children                                                                                                           In a loving mother’s care.
