Today is my Mom's birthday and I'm so thankful for the gift of her in my life! 3 John 4 "I could have no greater joy than to hear that my children live in the truth." That has been her standard in raising the three of us children. A goal that is worthy and valuable is often challenging and not without cost. Homeschooling three kids, disciplining, loving is hard work. I know now from personal experience that sacrifice is the standard of motherhood. That's as it should be, our Great Parent didn't spare himself sacrifice in his own parental love for us, why should we expect the cost to be less for us in parenting. So today I say thank you Mom! I count it an amazing act of God's mercy and grace in my life to give me so generous a gift as to be born into a loving, godly family with you as my mother! Happy birthday, and I certainly wish you many more!
