Honour your father and mother, as the Lord your God commanded you. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you. (Deu 5:16)
I saw that the family of my good friend Warren Evans, held a memorial yesterday for his mother. She was a beautiful woman of GOD and a true inspiration to so many. Then I got a call from my sister in the North to say “Mum’s not well, she’s calling for you, please try and get here as quick as you can ...”
Mamma mia ... where would I have been without you? Who would I have been without your love, your care - your boundaries?
Unashamedly, I give honour to the woman who continually fought me over my worldly desires - and who never gave up on me. She who helped me to understand that there was more to life than the la la I was determinedly chasing. And most importantly, that there was a true and Living GOD who loved me as my earthly father couldn’t.
NB - I know that for whatever medical or physical reason, some reading this haven't had the blessing of a caring mother or father and I can only hope that GOD made up the difference to your lives as he promises to in his Word.
Thank you Father that you are good and your mercies are new every morning (Lam 3:32). ❤️
