Mother’s Day – Honoring Others

Romans 12: 10 (NIV)

“Be devoted to one another in love.

Honor one another above yourselves.” 

For some, Mother’s Day is just a reminder of what they’ve never had. To others, it brings beautiful memories and a deep appreciation for a Mom that gave so much so they would have a bright future.

No matter which one of these scenarios fit you, today is a day to honor someone special. Someone who makes a difference in your life or has made a difference in the life of someone else.

Here Are A Few Suggestions:

*If you have lost your Mom in the last few years, find a Mom who’s lost their daughter and share the day together. Share your memories and honor the relationship that made life special for you.

*If you are a Mom whose lost your child, find someone who has lost their mother. Mentor, encourage and share memories of the past that bring you both joy.

*If you are a man who has lost his mother, find a mother whose son is in the service and spend time listening to the fun times she had with her son. Help Mother’s Day pass with the joy of remembering, not the ache of being alone.

To find a way to help a service family in your community go to:

*If you are a man who isn’t much for words, but has no one special on this day, find a mom whose loved one is serving our country away from home and find some ways to help that family. Mow the grass, repair things that are broken, do something that would help her on Mother’s Day.

*If you are a woman who has always dreamed of being a mother, but have yet to be blessed in that way, spend the day at a neonatal unit at your local hospital holding babies who need love. Or, find a friend in your similar situation and spend the day together.

*If you have a great Mom, don’t take that for granted. Do something special. A gift, a note, an act of service, don’t let this day go by unrecognized.

What are you doing to honor someone special today?

    Very good post. I honored family yesterday by working hard and happily getting much more ready at our new farm including lots of garden seeds in the ground–phew, but worth it!

      Thanks, Delores! So glad you spent time with family. The seeds you planted yesterday are symbolic in a way of the seeds you planted in your children’s and grandchildren’s lives throughout the years. Have a blessed Mother’s Day!
