*Read your bible daily. If we say that we love God, we will hunger for His Word – to truly get to know Him personally.
*Always put your children first. (There were times growing up when my mom had literally 7 outfits which she rotated. Her personal closet was pretty empty compared to ours – Why? Because she always put us first – bought our spring and fall clothing even when that meant she would get nothing new for herself.)
*We cannot “earn” our salvation, by being “good enough” as we are all unworthy. Being a follower of Christ, however, means that we must serve as He served. This is not an option. Momma is always visiting a sick friend, bringing a dinner to a grieving family, listening to a friend’s woes and giving them encouragement, taking care of her grandkids and kids, buying food for the food pantry at church, washing an elderly person’s clothes – you name it! She is truly Christ’s love in action!
* Always try to look and act your best, as you don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression.
* Christians of all denominations have more in common than we have differences. We have the big thing in common – that is OUR LOVE FOR JESUS. That’s huge!
*The rough times in life can make us bitter, or they can make us better. Perseverence is one of the virtues that a Christian must have. If we nourish the gift of faith always with scripture and prayer, our faith will help us to weather the bad times and bring us closer to Christ.
I love you with all my heart, Momma! Happy Mother’s Day!
