Mother’s Day – the one day each year when the children lead the fathers. They get daddy to help them make burnt toast and runny eggs, which are delivered to Mom in bed.

They pick the pretty flowers in the yard to present her with a bouquet: dandelions, lilacs, tulips, and whatever else they find blooming. They get out their art supplies and make homemade cards and paper flowers.

Soon, they grow up and have children of their own. After their children’s celebration, they make time with their mothers and grandmothers.

Sometimes they forget.

All mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers understand. They also know the loss when their own mothers and grandmothers are no longer there.

Life is busy and it is impossible to visit all of them in one day. My sister is spending the day with Mom today. She made arrangements first. That’s okay, because next weekend we are taking her to a restaurant she has wanted to try. (Hey, when you have 4 kids, you have to spread the celebrations out.)

It’s not too late to call your Mom!

Isaiah 11:6, “…and a little child will lead them all.” New Living Translation

Dear Father God,

Thank You for my godly mother and grandmothers. I remember them reading their Bibles and praying. What a wonderful heritage I have. I pray you bless Mom today and say hello to my grandmothers! They are missed.

In Jesus Name,
