A year has passed
Proverbs 31:10-12 and 25-31
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
I'll tell you the city gate busted open with praise when my momma got there!
April Fool's Day will never be the same again. It's the anniversary of my mom's death. I can't believe its been a year! I won't go into how much I miss her. I know everyone is tired of hearing that. But I wanted everyone just to think about her today and remember what a wonderful woman she was and what a blessing she was to me and my sisters. I know she is at peace with our good Lord and knowing I will see her again one sweet day gives me comfort. To those of you who have lost your mother, you know the emptiness that is left behind. To those of you who are so fortunate to still have your mother, do me a favor, please. Even if you don't get along with your mom, even if you fight over the smallest things, even if you haven't talked to her in a really long time, call her. Call, or better yet, go see her today and tell her you love her, because you may never get the chance again. If your mom was gone tomorrow, would you have regrets? How important are the things that come between you? Just remember mothers are not perfect, they are human too. We only get one mother in this lifetime, don't take the time you have with yours for granted. I love you all and pray that you all have a mother that cherishes you and that you cherish back!
