On the Road to Forever

"A Mother's Love Is A Haven In The Storm Of Life" by Helen Steiner Rice. "A
mother's love is like an island, in life's ocean vast and wide; A peaceful
quiet shelter from the restless, rising tide. A mother's love is like a
fortress, and we seek protection there; When the waves of tribulation, seem
to drown us to despair. A mother's love is a sanctuary, where our souls can
find sweet rest; From the struggle and the tension, of life's fast and
futile quest. A mother's love is like a tower, rising far above the crowd;
And her smile is like the sunshine, breaking through a threatening cloud. A
mother's love is like a beacon, burning bright with faith and prayer; And
through the changing scenes of life, we can find a haven there. For a
mother's life is fashioned, after God's enduring love; It is endless and
unfailing, like the love of Him above."

Our concept of our mother took dramatic changes over the years. How
surprised we were when we discovered that she once was a little girl with a
mother of her own. What a surprise to know "mom" actually had a first name.We began to understand the family tree when we found out her last name used to be the same as one of your grandparents, after we discovered they actually had names of their own. Can you remember that age when discovery actually brought about confusion that made perfect sense in your mind only to find out later nothing makes sense? Yeah, second grade.

Some second graders were asked questions about their mothers. Here are some of the best answers. Q: Why did God make mothers? A: "She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is." Q: How did God make mothers? A: "God made my mom just the same as he made me - just with bigger parts." Q: What ingredients are mothers made of? A: "God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world, and one dab of mean." Q: What kind of little girl was your mom? A: "I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be, pretty bossy." Q: Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom? A: "We're related." Q: What did your mom need to know about your dad before she married him? A: "Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?" Q: Why did your mom marry your dad? A: "My grandma says my mom didn't have her thinking cap on." Q: Who's the boss in your house? A: "Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball." Q: What's the difference between moms and dads? A: "Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them." Q: If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be? A: "I'd like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes in the back of her head." Q: What would it take to make your mom perfect? A: "Diet. You know; her hair. I'd diet; maybe blue." Q: What does your mom do in her spare time? A: "To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long."

[Proverbs 31: 10-31] These passages are often used to praise a woman as a wife and mother. Of course, as one reads these lines of prose, one soon
discovers this perfect woman would be very hard to find. She is a wife and a mother, but I suspect she has many servants and employs many workers.
Nevertheless, she is Godly, as I believe her husband is also. They could
very well be the "Ozzie and Harriet" of the Old Testament. All mothers are
super special in the heart of God and I contend that mothers have a special spiritual bond with God that men lack. Bless and thank God for our mothers.
