The Blessing of Having a Faithful Mother

Earlier today, I read this heart-warming Mother’s Day Tribute from one mother to her mother and grandmother. It reminded me of my very own faithful mother. Having a mother that has this strong and close relationship with the Lord is one of the greatest blessings I have in my life. While some mothers give their children fancy heirlooms, my Mom gave me something more precious than any gem or thing in this world–the gift of knowing the love of God. The blessing of having a faithful mother has been one of the best things in my life.

Now that I am a Mom myself, I will strive to become the mother that my mother was–and raise my kids alongside Jesus Christ. Some mothers may wish to teach their kids how to be great and successful. While I wish that too, my prayer above everything else is that I leave them with a faith so strong that even when I am no longer here, they can withstand the spiritual trials of life. I want to bestow the blessing of having a faithful mother to my children, just as my mother did for me.

Also, I wish that someday, when my kids are all grown up, they will see me just as I see my Mom–a faithful mother.
