When God made mothers He made a very special creature indeed. • The unconditional love God gave mothers for their children is probably the closest thing on earth to His incredible love for us. • The gentle tenderness a mother expresses in handling her newborn child is so reminiscent of the tender loving care God promises to the faithful. • The sincere sympathy mothers show for hurt elbows and hurt hearts is not unlike the compassion God has for us. • The sacrificial unselfishness mothers demonstrate time and time again towards their children reminds us of how benevolent God has been to us. • The soft special kisses and the always sweet smiles that mothers so generously give can help us to understand and appreciate the joy God has designed for families in the here and now and for Christians forevermore. God bless loving mothers for showing us many important things about God. ~Edd Sterchi
There is a tender story told about an ailing mother who was resting in her bed when her nine-year-old daughter walked in. The daughter quietly unfolded a blanket and tucked it around her mother. “You know, “the mother said, “It hasn’t been that long since I was tucking you in, and now here you are covering me up.” The little girl smiled, kissed her on the cheek, whispered, “We take turns,” and then skipped out of the room. ~Dennis Lynn
Quotations about Mothers
“Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly.” ~Sarah Malin
“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” ~George Washington
