Happy Mother's Day
"Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old....
The father of a righteous man has great joy;
he who has a wise son delights in him.
May your father and mother be glad;
may she who gave you birth rejoice!"
Proverbs 23:22, 24, 25
This is where I began my Mother's Day. In the home of dear friends, watching the sun come up behind a grapefruit tree, I pondered the sacrifices our mothers and grandmothers have made. Not just the sacrifices of the years when we were small, but the current sacrifices they make to encourage and support us while we live so very far away with their very cute grandchildren. Thank you for releasing us to go to the Solomon Islands. May we give you reason to rejoice!
