“For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.” (Psalm 139:13 NASB)
For a good parent, a child’s needs come before any other duty or concern. Thank you, Mother, for being all things to me when I came into this world completely helpless, blind, and vulnerable. Hallelujah!
Before any outing with your husband or friends, before any scheduled appointment, came my every need and heart’s desire. Hallelujah! Before the checkbook could ever be balanced or the grocery list completed, you considered the needs of your baby boy. I have yet to see the face of Jesus as I shall someday. However, since before I was able to crawl, through it all, stand or fall, you have been here for me. I have said and done so many things unnecessarily. Yet, allow me to say now that I do recognize just how blessed and highly favored I have always been to have a mother who, next to God, placed my well being above all else in life. With exemplary devotion and love you have always been a testament to God’s perfect love.
Despite the many moments when I acted quite unlovable, you never failed to demonstrate the unconditional love and faithfulness of God to me clearly. Your acceptance and encouragement are the soil in which I have grown up to be the man I am today. Thank you, Mom, above all. I thank God Almighty for you and honor you today just because I can and I must. I love you! Praise God!
