Exodus 20:12 NIV
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
Mother, I want to honor you at all times, but especially this Mother’s Day.
H – Happy were you at my birth. High hopes you held for me the hour I was born. Hazel eyes were given to me. Your heart hailed my entrance to this world as you heard my howls.
O – Open arms offered opulent love. Overflowing. Obvious. God ordained the moment He gave me to you. Original I am.
N – Noble mother you trained me. Nourished my life. Nurtured my growth. Never gave up on me. Never neglected my needs. Nonstop notable deeds were noticed. No way can I repay you. You always nursed me when I was ill, scared or nervous.
O – Obstinate daughter I became. Ornery I was. Still your ostensible love for me never ceased. Outspoken, outgoing I overestimated myself. Obedient mother you observed my behavior and from obvious experience chastened me.
R – Rejoice in Christ for refining and refilling our lives. Renowned are you mother. I repent for my rogue renegade route. Remarkable, relevant, and reliable you are. No one can replace you in my life. May you, mother, find rest in the Lord today. You mother, a virtuous woman worth far more than rubies. May our lives revolve around the Lord. Radical about HIM. God is our reward.
Proverbs 23:25 NIV
May your father and mother be glad;
may she who gave you birth rejoice!
Happy Mother's Day!! Blessings in Christ-
