Sunday is Mother’s Day. A day we set aside in America to honor our moms.
I have been blessed with three children who are all grown and married. It amazes me to realize how much God has provided for Tom and me in all the different seasons of our marriage. This is why we are committed to point others to His faithfulness no matter how long it has been since they said “I do”.
Our youngest daughter got married in January and was also the last one to move away. (They each live in different states!)
When I realized we wouldn’t be celebrating this holiday together, it tempts me to be sad and even worse, overly emotional!
Rather than feel sorry for myself, I made a request. I asked our son and two daughters to consider writing a post for The Romantic Vineyard about marriage in lieu of a gift. I often joke how I love words and this gift of words from their heart would be the best ever. I asked them to pray and see what God would give them to share. I must say they have exceeded my expectations and you will be blessed. I know I am, and I tell them every chance I get.
So come back Monday as we begin this series. We hope it will encourage you not only in your marriage, but also in realizing the impact you are making on your children and their future.
God is good and His ways are not our ways. Let this truth inform your thoughts this weekend.
