Honor Thy Mother....

Honor = "To give great weight to; to hold as valuable." As we embark on this weekend of celebration of Mothers, this is one relationship that is in a class all by itself. From conception through adulthood and beyond, Mothers occupy the awesome position of protector, teacher, mentor, nurturer, provider, comforter.....the list can go on and on. It wasn't until I became a mother almost 12 years ago, that I realized the power of all of those roles and how they fortified my resolve to honor God for the gift of motherhood by the way I raise my son. Through this journey, I have learned the lessons that are helping families all over the nation raise healthy, happy children that are shaping the next generation and beyond. The role of Motherhood for me is one of the most rewarding, privileged and honorable positions that I hold. I am privileged to honor God through Motherhood. Without learning first from my mother, grandmother, Spiritual mothers and all of the women who have played a role in molding and shaping me into the woman I am today, I wouldn't be who and what I am today. Mothers have the privilege of being the first teacher, the first nurturer, the first mentor; the FIRST. So as we celebrate the joy of motherhood, whether your mother is with you in body or in Spirit, let's Honor God by Honoring His word which commands us to "Honor Thy Mother". Happy Mother's Day!
