Speaking about his mother, Billy Graham said, “Of all the people I have ever known, she had the greatest influence on me.” Pastor Graham hit the nail on the head! As Christians, it is our non-laborious duty to honor and treasure the influence our mothers have had in shaping our lives as believers. As it stands we would would not be, were it not for our mother’s wound. David said in Psalm 139:13, “You created every part of me; you put me together in my mother’s womb.”
To those whose mother’s bodies are resting but whose spirits are reigning with God know that every, “I miss you” and “I love you” can be heard and although they may not respond audibly they can most certainly respond to you spiritually. The only thing that can fill the void in your heart on days like these is having the confidence in knowing that you will see her again! (1 Thess 4:16-18)
M is for the million things she gave you.
O is for the door that is always open when all other doors are closed.
T is for the tears of joy shed when she delivered you.
H is for her heart of purest gold.
E is for her eyes, with love-light burning.
R is right—and right she’ll always be. (Who dares to say differently?)
