Today is my mother’s birthday. I can say, without hesitation, that the celebration of her life is a celebration of Christ! If you know my mom—you’ve definitely seen Jesus. Her heart bubbles over with His love! She is wise and yet, maintains a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor. She rarely talks about herself. Her words are kind, and when she speaks—you feel God’s smile inside your heart. She is quick to shed compassionate tears for the sorrow of others.

Although she’s never attained a professional degree, she’s a pro at what’s important—love, wisdom, compassion and mercy. 

She will tell you that her best qualities ALL come from God. The Bible is her favorite book and the wisdom with which she speaks—is proof.

When I think of my mom, this verse comes to mind: “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:7‬) This describes how she interacts with ALL people—not just her own children.

She is the virtuous woman spoken of in Proverbs whose children and grandchildren glorify God because of the influence of her life: “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies…Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.’ Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” (Proverbs 31:10, 28-30)  

Thank you, Mom for showing me what it looks like to live humbly, beautifully, graciously, wisely, and supremely confident in the love of The Heavenly Father. When I grow up, I want to be just like you!
