Mother's Day Devotion
By Cathy Irvin
Remember when you were a child and you would pick up
buttercups or dandelions for your mother, and how you would hide
them behind your back? I can remember by mom cooking dinner on
a Saturday afternoon. I gave her a handful of flowers that I had
picked from the yard. She smiled at me and thanked me for such
a lovely gift. She took off her apron, sat me on her lap, and
told me that she loved me.
I recently found a picture of me when I was quite young. My mother
had written on the back of the picture "3-years-old,"
which is the same age of my precious great-granddaughter, Destiny.
The other day Destiny handed me a dandelion from the yard.
Somehow those moments of reflection remind me that Jesus, our
Beloved, wants to shower us with gifts of His love. He also expects
us to give others little acts of kindness as we journey along
here on earth.
I am so glad I gave my mother flowers then. Through the years
on Mother’s Day, even though she passed away 12 years ago,
her smile still comes back when I am given a flower from a tiny
hand trying to say I love you.
Be sure you show and tell your mother or special loved one that
you love them all the time, not just on special occasions. Then
when they move on to heaven, you can know that the Lord was pleased
that you gave your love away. It is like flowers that last forever
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward
love and good deeds. Hebrews 10:24 (NIV)
