All For Love – Spiritual Sunday

For this week’s Spiritual Sunday post, Charlotte has suggested we share how our mothers’ spiritual influence affected our lives.

My Mother...
Guides wisely
Disciplines fairly
Sacrifices constantly
and prays nonstop for her family...

My Mother...
Adores her husband
Cherishes her children 
Encourages her friends
Worships her Savior...

My Mother...
Exemplifies the Proverbs 31 woman
Demonstrates the fruits of the spirit
Exhibits a servant’s heart in all she does

I am a blessed daughter...

One would have to be made of stone to not be influenced by the many Christ-like attributes of my Mother...

I am a blessed daughter...

Unconditional love poured out from a mother, is a catalyst that points a child towards the path of the cross...and leads the way to accepting God’s grace, poured out through His Son.

All for love...

I am a blessed daughter...

Thank you, Lord!!

Love puts up with all things, 
trusts in all things, 
hopes for all things, 
endures all things. 

I Corinthians 13:7 CEB

Hi Karen,

Your words are filled with love and joy for your mother. It is an honor to say, "I am blessed because of you."

Blessings and peace.

A precious tribute to your mom, Karen!

Yes, mothers are a special gift to us - my mother also brought me to Jesus - and that is a gift for which I am forever grateful.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Like Mother...like daughter!

Karen...guides wisely,disciplines fairly, sacrifices constantly and prays nonstop for her family...need I go on... You aren't even my mother yet I know you have a great influence on me spiritually!!!

Your mother is truly blessed to have such a thoughtful, wonderful daughter! You are blessed and so is she... you are an absorbent sponge and a glorious overflow and outpouring from parents that pointed and led you to accept Jesus and His grace and shine His love!

May all this and more reflect and come back to you doublefold today..
hope your mom has recovered well with all your tender loving care and is able to enjoy a SUPER Day with you! Giving thanks to God for moms like yours, you and mine.

Blessings of love,
