Mother’s Day

Posted on 28 April 2011 by LeslieM

Are you ready for Mother’s Day? It’s less than a few weeks away. I know it’s a little early, but I wanted the opportunity to give the ladies the honor they deserve. For you history buffs, let me fill you in on some of the Mother’s Day details. Mother’s Day in the USA started long ago when Anna Jarvis organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her Appalachian community. She called it “Mother’s Work Day.” When she died in 1905, her daughter began a campaign to memorialize her mom. In 1914, Anna, the daughter named after her mother, saw her hard work pay off when President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill recognizing Mother’s Day as a national holiday. Today, the second Sunday of May has become the most “dined out” day of the year, and telephone companies record their highest volume of calls. The flower and candy businesses are not bad either. Oh, let us not forget about “the card.”



5 I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.



You are important and you will leave a mark on this earth. It’s up to you as to what you leave behind and pass on. All throughout the Bible, women have played an incredible role in the plan of God. We see women being used by God in amazing ways, helping to fulfill His divine plan. Women have always played a key role in God’s plan, and I want to make sure we never lose sight how important they are to all of us. Take the time to thank the women in your life who have helped shape you into the person you are today.


Proverbs 31:10

10 A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman—who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls.



What’s the most important Mother’s Day ever? This one! Oh, I am sure you can recount some very special Mother’s Days. But the one you observe this year should be the best ever. Also, make sure your kids do the right thing. Honor the special ladies in your lives by recognizing the valuable contribution they make at church, as well as at home. It’s not easy being a wife, mother, churchwoman, bread-winner, homemaker, taxi driver — you name it! Let her know how you feel.

If I can speak to moms, and women in general, on behalf of the husbands, fathers, brothers and sons today, I would like to say this. The music of your life is beautiful. You are a beautiful flower with delicate petals and a wonderful fragrance. We envy the relationship you have with our children and grandchildren. God created you beautiful in the depth of your being, and it is that beauty that draws us to you. We praise God for you and thank God for you, even though we don’t tell you nearly as often as we should.
