Don’t Get It Twisted
Mother’s Day Is Every Day
Especially When Mothers Day is Gone
"Honor your father and mother, which is the first
commandment with promise: that it may be well with
you and you may live long on the earth."
[Ephesians 6:2, 3 NKJV]
Celebration of you “Mothers.”
The meaning of Mother’s Day cannot really be clarified by fancy articulated words organized in a card, nor a floral arrangement of flowers to display love, appreciation, thanks and Blessings. The gestures given in the form of gifts, meals, hugs, kisses, money, and other representations of affection by family and friends only shows an emotional feeling for that day and a few beyond.
Mother’s Day is celebrated annually in May, but
Don’t Get It Twisted - Mother’s Day Is Every Day
It began as a well-established tradition going back to Philadelphia in 1907,
and continues on into the 21st century. Rarely in this day and age of high tech,
fast paced and instant gratification do things this meaningful last.
“We are in a culture that holds mothers to a maddening
standard of mythological perfection”. (Unknown)
All mothers have the unique Blessings of God because he knew that children needed to be nurtured, loved, and taught how to be respectful and how to pray. Mothers are a child’s first teacher of life. A mother has the responsibility to teach their child how to be caring for family and friends, the importance of education and notably their first introduction to God. Mother’s wisdom is that when they are not with their children God is the one who is watching over them, keeping their babies out of danger and steering them clear of harm and hurt. Mothers know they are the foundation of humanity. Humanity exists and prospers because Mothers are still in control. Human beings by our very nature need to be loved, recognized and from time to time provided hugs, and affection, what better person than the mother who carried you for 9 months or the mother who may not have carried you and given birth to you,
but who has taken on that role as a mother.
"A mother is not a person to lean on but person to make leaning unnecessary." (Dorothy Fisher)
Even biblically it is written in the Bible mothers play a key role in the development of generations, not just in the bearing of children, but in the reinforcement of family traditions, passing down of family history, helping children to understand their key roles and direction in life,
and teaching young girls how to be good mothers.
In Solomon, 8:2 (KJ Version), it is written that, “I would lead thee,
and bring thee into my mother's house, who would instruct me”.
Solomon, purported to be the wisest man in the world honors his mother
and recognizes her instruction to him.
Jesus respected his mother when she asked him to turn
water to wine at a wedding, John 2:3 (KJ Version).
Moses mother loved him so much that she sacrificed him to live and
was blessed to get him back, Exodus 1:1-8 (KJ Version).
Hagar in Genesis 16 was blessed with a son who would be the father
of many nations. Genesis 16 (KJ Version)
"If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them, and half as much money." (Abigail Van Buren)

“The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms”.
(Oliver Wendell Holmes)
Men may think they run things, but they should not get it twisted, when a mother speaks and gets to praying we all stop and listen.
Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, mentors, surrogate mothers, and those in your respective roles deserve respect, praise and love on your day and beyond.
Don’t Get It Twisted – Mothers Day Is Everyday
"Blessed is the Mother...
Who can hold onto her children while letting them go;
Who puts a tranquil home ahead of an immaculate house;
Who knows a kind act will be remembered longer than an easy word;
Who really believes that prayer changes things;
Whose faith in the future sweetens the present;
Whose Bible never needs dusting; and
Whose sense of humor is alive and well." (The Promoter)
