• The Preacher Says


Updated: May 21, 2018



I have had my mother on my mind a lot lately. Especially since so many have had to say good bye to their mothers. Mother's Day always brings out those special memories of my mother. She was a very godly woman!

Several years ago, when we were in Seattle with Diane's sister, I knew Mothers’ Day, would be hard on them, for their mother had left us, too. It had only been a short time since their mother passed away. The church where Diane's sister and her family attended was very sensitive to all who had lost their mothers. I thought it was great that these two wonderful, loving sisters could be together. And I could only tell them that it takes time after losing one's mother to adjust to the loss. However, I must admit after sixteen years, the memories are still there, and as the song says, they are "Precious Memories!"

I remember my mother reading Bible stories to my brother and me. I also remember when she put Christ on in baptism (Galatians 3:27). I also, remember how much like Jesus my Mother really was. She was great!

If you had a godly Mother, you know what I'm talking about. My wife is a very godly mother and so was her sister. Our daughters have tried to copy their mother’s example. And we give God the praise and glory for that!

So, God bless all of you who are mothers--for godly mothers are Wonderful!
