In Honor Of Our Mother..

"Strength and dignity are her clothing and she laughs at the time to come.' Prov.31:25

When my brothers and I see this verse we all think about our mother. This verse is so much a part of who she is and of the woman that I hope to become.

This is written to you mom from the boys and I....

Strength and dignity are her clothing....
  • even when you are chasing the boys with a broom because they wouldn't stop fighting...(and all we did was laugh)
  • even when you try soooo very hard to play "Wii Dance" and it just never works out for you...remember you are a Baptist preacher's wife and
  • even when you set the clock 7 minutes fast....and your still late
  • even when you try way too hard to dance and it never turns out well...oh did I mention that already?
  • BUT especially when you showed us the value of sacrificing for your family
  • especially when you showed us the value of servant hood and submission as you daily served our father..never realizing the impact that this has had on our marriages
  • especially when we see your gift of mercy and grace
  • especially when you are always there to listen
  • especially when you wear strength and dignity as if it is your most comfortable pair of jeans because it is so much a part of who you are...

...and she laughs at the time to come

We are so thankful to the Lord that this is who you are. You are a woman that can face a problem with strength but more importantly with peace: knowing how big God is....

We are so blessed by you and so thankful that not only are you a beautiful mother but you are also our friend. We love you and we wish we could be there with you...


"Her children rise up and call her blessed.." Prov.31:28
