Mothers are special

Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her. 
Proverbs 31:28

God made mothers more special than anyone else.  He made them the bearers of life and in so doing, knew they had to be more exceptional than the rest of us.

He made them the cornerstone of the home, the foundation of the family, the backbone of society, the ideal of all that is best with the human race.

They are the guardians of decency,
the preservers of peace,
the upholders of truth,
the protectors of morality,
the symbol of virtue,
an inspiration to all that is noble and good in life,
and love knows no greater representative than that of a mother’s love.

Upon our earth, no title is more revered and no sound more beautiful or sweeter heard than the tender loving word - mother.

Even though mothers are no longer looked upon with such importance, let us carry the torch for all mothers and spread the word of how important they are and how important the role of mothers are in society today.

And to my mother, may God give you the strength that you need right now . . . lean on your faith to get through each day . . .  the Lord IS WATCHING over you. My mother is in poor health at present and really struggling day-to-day. 


  1. Beautiful words, Joluise. Praying that your mom will soon be feeling better.

  2. I'm sorry she's not doing well at the moment. Please tell her we're praying for her!

    As for that list of what mothers are - I'm not so sure I'm that wonderful as a mother, but I can at least aspire to it!! :)

  3. Praying for your mother. God bless you and her as you seek Him during this struggle. Amazing that God would give such a tremendous job and responsibility to us weak human beings. It is only by His Grace...

  4. Thankyou for your kind words - sadly mum had a bad day today, we can only leave this in the Lords hands and He will take care of her.

  5. Like Clara I find it hard to believe I could be this wonderful. But mothers are amazing people - something you really, really, really realise best - when they are gone =(
    Praying for His best for your mother...

  6. So sorry to hear that your mother is in poor health and pray for God's healing hand upon her Joluise, Jehaovah Raha "the LORD that healeth". They are truly precious a rare, such beauty (of the inner kind) beyond compare, without them our lives have a loss which only heaven will overcome - my mother went to be with the LORD on 8.8.01, and that thought is a precious comfort for I know she is with Him free of the pain she had for so many years... and long for the day when I see her again blessings of the LORD dear sister, Shaz in oz.x
