MOTHER'S DAY    5-12-2019

" The man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living" (Genesis 3:20).

There is one fact of life for everyone except Adam and Eve--we all were born of a woman we call Mother or Mom or Ma! God created Adam and Eve as separate beings with different body parts to function uniquely. Man plants the seed, woman tends the seed until it becomes a human being capable of living on his or her own self (with a little help from the parents once outside the womb).

A mother's body nurtures the infant inside her special womb. I believe it was author/preacher T. D. Jakes who called her a "womb-man" (woman).

Mothers and Fathers teach different things to each child. They become aware of the child's likes and dislikes, temperament, need to be held and loved, placement in the family, etc. Most children are loved and wanted, even in dysfunctional families.

I was the second born into a loving family with a mother, a father, an older sister and younger brother. Our parents are both in heaven now, but we siblings gather when possible to celebrate each other and thank God for our parents who loved and cared for us.

May God bless all mothers on this special day!
