I love Mother’s Day. Not because I get a gift but because of the joy and celebration children bring to life. Scripture speaks often of children being a blessing from the Lord. And for women without physical children I believe this principle applies to spiritual children in the Lord.
Homemade cards are the best. Sorry Hallmark! You just can’t provide the heart that are in the handwritten cards of my little boys. And the crayon drawing is priceless. This year Aaron wrote:
“My mom is very kind. She is always happy. She is a wonderful pastor’s wife. Thank you mom. I love you.”
“You are the best and most beautiful mom in the world. I love you.”
I hope as I continue to grow as a mom that my children will remember wonderful things about their mother, not for my benefit but so that they will have the most secure foundation possible to serve Christ.
I have never been able to throw away a card from my children. From time to time I receive handwritten letters/cards from women I have brought to Christ or mentored. I save all of these and put them in a file marked “Bouquets.” Does anyone have any great ideas of how to keep all of this special stuff organized?
With email we are getting further and further away from handwritten notes. Who do you need to send a thank you note to? Your mom? A friend? Your pastor? A mentor? An author? I bet you could do it in 5 minutes.
