a mother’s day prayer

Parenting can be hard work.  Being a mother, tiresome.  Caring for little ones, demanding.  At times it may feel like there is no end in sight to the dirty laundry, messy rooms, and disastrous kitchens after meal time and although my little ones never say ‘thank you’ I know that what I am pouring into them will be so rewarding when I am old and gray haired when they have grown up to call me blessed.  This is my prayer.  That no matter how tired I am that I will always have enough time to share with them and model to them what really matters in this life.  Jesus. 

To all the mothers and mothers-to-be and even some day mothers…Happy Mother’s Day.  You do a beautiful work that the world scoffs at and looks down upon.  A calling it is to be a mother and to invest in these little lives day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.  I pray you all will be blessed and encouraged!  I pray that you would speak with wisdom, that faithful instruction would be on your tongues.  I pray that you would watch over the affairs of your households and not eat the bread of idleness. I pray that one day your children will arise and call you blessed and that your husband would praise you! 

…taken from Proverbs 31…

She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Amen.
