Good morning Guys and Girls!
On behalf of all the men here, who forgot that they caused some of the ladies here to be a Mother, I take the privilege to wish all of you Mothers a blessed Day today.
Give thanks to God for the privilege of a new year to spend with your children, to receive a phone call, an email message, or a surprise visit from those who live away from home, from time to time.
As you think of yourself to be a Mother, today, remember also the blessedness of God’s love for you, when He flourished your womb that you were able to reproduce–whatever the number of children you have at this time.
According to the Bible, the woman who was barren in ancient time, took it as shameful–like a curse on her. Some of them, like the woman named Hannah, prayed to God, that she might conceive a son to her husband, who had children with his second wife. She promised that she would give that son back to God.
God answered her prayers, and she did just as she promised. She gave that son back to God, he was raised by a priest named Eli. He was the one who observed Hanna praying, but in a whisper, so he accused her of being drunk with wine, early in the morning–can you believe that?
Hannah’s son’s name was Samuel, the prophet who guided the Kings of ancient Israel, like Saul and David. My own mother conceived 15 times. 2 were stillborn and 3 died as young babies. 10 of us are alive–8 grown women, with our own children and 2 grown men, only one has a daughter–my beautiful Carlyn, who sings with the Fanatics musical group. I only have one, but I consider myself just as blessed.
Let us give praise and thanks to God Almighty, because of His great Love for us, through His only begotten Son, His Person of Love, who is Jesus Christ! Amen!
Have a great day today!
