Mothers are so special
Therefore the soldiers did these things. But standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus then saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He *said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then He *said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the disciple took her into his own household. John 19:25-27 (NASB)

Mother’s Day brings about a safari of emotional adventures of periods of development that have brought meanings to life’s most challenging situations. Even when frustrations surround and abound like the torrential rains and tormented winds of nature’s furriest hurricanes, a mother’s love shields like a Knight’s shinning armor.
When worriation engulfs us like the suffocating smoke and dust from the 911 catastrophe of the terrorist attacks on New York’s Twin Towers, a mother’s smile warms the heart like a soothing cup of hot chocolate on a cold night.
It’s a mother’s wit and wisdom that unravel confusion faster that a cat can wink it’s eye or a the flapping of a humming bird’s wings.
Anxiety has no place in a mother’s bosom. For it is here that life support is suckled from the inner core of her being to the yearning receiving soul for growth and nourishment.
Death has no shadow over the memories of her laughter that covered us lightly and politely as if it were dew. – “As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended on the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life forever more.” Psalms 133:3
Her comfort and the contagiousness of her joy are God’s expression of how magnificent He is. He who wounded a man. Took a rib from man and through man’s wound made a woman.
In pain a mother’s love fought back fear on the brink of death to allow life to enter this world through her.
With joy she is food for her children served on a platter of lessons.
The reality that God would employ a human mother to carry and bring His Son into humanity has bequeathed upon motherhood its utmost admiration.
Try as we might with the greatest acumen of any doctorial thesis, search the vastness of the celestial exosphere and explore the uncharted seas there you will find nothing to compare with the innate and precious composition God endowed in a mother’s love.
God as the Mother and Father of all that is, I thank you with every grain of sand and if I had as many tongues as there are stars in the heavens I could not thank you enough for giving us a mother and all her love. —Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
GOD MUST HAVE CREATED MOTHERS IN HIS OWN IMAGE.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers!
