A Man's Perspective On Mothers

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Half of what I think I know about mothers comes from having one. The other half comes from being married to one. In fact, I probably know more about my mother from being married to my sons' mother. Here are the key things I've learned:
Mothers are the people who take Jesus at His word when He says to forgive each other "seventy times seven."
Mothers are the ones who still believe in you when everyone else begins to doubt.
Never get between a mother and her cubs. Even if you are the father, you lose.
The best gift you can give your children is to love their mother.
A mother's prayers are more powerful than any force on earth or in heaven.
A father may know best, but a mother cares best, and children will pick caring over knowing every time.
We may pray to "Our Father," but the face of God we see, the hand of God we clutch, and the heart of God we trust, belongs to our mothers.
Lord, thanks for giving us mothers so that we can see, hold, and hear You more clearly.
