2 Timothy 1:5 (MSG) “That precious memory triggers another: your honest faith—and what a rich faith it is, handed down from your grandmother Lois to your mother Eunice, and now to you!”
Mother’s Day weekend 2016 is upon us and I’d like to wish all who qualify under that honorable title a very Happy Mother’s Day!
My own precious mother, Janice Haymon, will be celebrating her 75th birthday this very same weekend (5/7) and I’d like to express a deep and heartfelt thanksgiving to the Lord for her. Love is portrayed in far too many ways to recount in one short article. However, a major area of demonstration comes with the word “attentive.” All through my growing up years, I could always count on my mother watching out for the welfare of my siblings and I in every possible way. As time went by, as is a part of life, her attentiveness shifted from all-encompassing as babies and small children through the phases of necessary attention until even now. At my advanced age of 51, she is still happily attentive and engaged in the things that she knows are important to us. I’m thankful for her attention to our children. As you may know, she has 13 grandchildren! Her attentiveness to each of them is remarkable. They know beyond the shadow of a doubt that whether far or near, she is constantly thinking about them and loving them.
Mother, thank you for being a wonderful and godly example of true Christian motherhood! I love you. I hope this birthday/Mother’s Day combination is the happiest and most memorable ever!
I’m thankful for two more mothers God has placed in my life: my amazing wife, LaRonda, and her sweet mother, Sis. Gayle. I wish them a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!
Mothers are strong links in the generational chain. Today we find a mighty and deeply spiritual generation of apostolics who are that way because, like Timothy of the New Testament, we have faithful mothers!
