Thank God For Godly Mothers/Women

We enjoyed a mother-daughter day with mom today...
no pics but lots of chit-chat! (missed you. Mar!)
My sister who hosted the luncheon sent us all home with beautiful blooms!

My mom modeled/models Prov. 31; 10-31 for her daughters...
 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Of all the blessings that life grants
One holds a price beyond compare
It fills our hearts with humble thanks
For godly mothers everywhere

Though words will never be enough
We try in sweet and sundry ways
…and for a godly mother’s love
We lift to God a song of praise

We thank Him for mother, so dear
Who through wisdom, not of her own
Taught sons and daughters to revere
The one true God on Heaven’s throne

Who, by her walk, (not words alone)
Her children, when grown can applaud
And thank her for faithful love shown
That let them glimpse the love of God
