Happy Mother’s Day…to all of you. I pray God’s richest blessings on you as you ‘mother’ biological, foster and adopted children. God has truly blessed all of us by entrusting precious children to our care. I pray that today has been a time for you to be honored for who you are and all you do, as well as a time for you to reflect on the gifts God has given you.
I wanted to share the note our 15-year-old son Connor wrote to me today. We have fostered since before Connor was born, so foster care has always been a part of his life and has really shaped who he has become. (I’m sure if you have fostered for very long, you have seen that with your own children.)
Happy Mother’s Day!! I don’t think any words can describe how blessed I and we are! Proverbs 31 is probably the best example of you! The best verse in that is vs. 20, ‘She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.’ Thank you for being a very godly example of God’s LOVE! You have given me a love for kids and orphans and that is just a fraction of what you’ve done for me”– Connor
Wow…..humbling and such a blessing. You understand that I am not saying that Connor is perfect…after all he is a 15 year old boy :), but God has instilled in him a love for Himself and a love for others. And today, on Mother’s Day…nothing could be more of a gift.
