After Mother's Day - Back Into Full Swing

Hope all of you moms had a great Mother's Day weekend - we sure did. Spending time with our families was a nice, refreshing time.

We also realize that Mother's Day can be painful or sorrowful for many. The loss of a cherished mom, the loss of a child, longing for children who have separated themselves from a family, or even wishing you were a mother or that some wish their own mothers had been better role models. We pray for you.

Speaking of role model moms...Who is yours? If we look to the Bible, we can see many examples of great mothers, as well as some pretty bad ones too. Such is life. One notable mom can be a role model for all of us - the Proverbs 31 woman. Read a full article about the Proverbs 31 woman.

She's efficient, trustworthy, loving, generous, resourceful, skilled, dedicated to her family, organized, and she has earned the God-given reward that faithfulness, diligence and wisdom brings. OK, a tough act to follow? Sure - but she makes for a great role model for us to look up to. We may each need some help in some of those areas, but we're on our way. God is faithful to finish the work He has started in us!

Keep up doing the good work moms and ladies. The impact you have on the world around you is bigger than you may realize.
