Wait on the LORD: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart;
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Blessings from Mother
Yesterday I listened to a sermon by a pastor friend who shared these words with his congregation in reference to it being Mother's Day. May we be blessed by the writer's contribution.

There is no other person who plays a greater role in the development of a child than their mother. For nine months a mother carries within her body her precious baby, providing everything essential for life.

After labor and delivery this woman becomes a mother through the miracle of birth. From infancy onward it is our mothers who nurture us, care for us and love us unconditionally. Mothers are women of great faith and emotional strength. Very few of us can comprehend the difficulty and the challenge of motherhood. It is something understood and shared among women only.

Mothers are to be respected and valued for the significant role they play in making a house a home and in creating what we call a family. And giving their children roots and wings. Of all the things a mother does, one of the greatest gifts she can pass on to her children is her faith in God. A child needs to grow up with a sense of purpose, belief and hope. When a mother loves her children, she surrounds them with feelings of safety peace and confidence. And as a mother prays for her children, she blesses her child in a way unimaginable. A mother is a rock, and an anchor with a tender hug and a loving smile.

And as parents we cannot control the destiny of our children; we cannot determine which way the wind will blow; but we can have influence on the setting of their sails. Thank God for mothers who loved us enough to impart values and virtues that have served us well as adults and on this day we honor every mother for her great sacrifices and commitment. Today we say: "Thank you, mom."

(Captain Peter Strong, chaplain serving in Iraq)


Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.


Together in Christ,

Pastor Orval Wirkkala
