Although I feel like I have known this for a long time, this morning it hit me as to just how true it is. What made me think of it? I was on the phone with my Mom. My Mom is really an indispensable, irreplaceable part of my life. I’m not sure what life would be like without her, and many days, I pray that Jesus comes back before I have to experience that!
My own Mother listens to my dreams of the future, the hurts of my past, and the day-to-day happenings of my present. She gives advice when I ask for it, and other times, is just my listening ear. I realized this morning, that even though her children are grown and moved out, she is still a Mother. That hasn’t changed.
Our work as a Mother may change as our children age, but the truth is, it will never be over. We will always care about and for our children. When my children are married, I’m sure I will still treat them like children. After all, I think I will want to hold on to these times when they are young. Knowing that someday my children will be my age gets me teary eyed. The day will come when we will have to let go of them. That will be a hard day. However, that is why TODAY is so important!
Today we have the opportunity to raise up our children to love God. We can teach them about His Word and instill it in their hearts. Obviously, what they do with it is their responsibility. I desire for our children to love the Bible, to love God, to know Him deeply. To want to please Him above pleasing me!
Our work will never be over. Let us continue to do good and not grow weary (Galatians 6.9). One day, we will reap what we have sown. Let us sow the seeds of truth and righteousness in our children! Let us take advantage of today, for we may not have a tomorrow.
I would love to be friends!
