    Bible Verses for Mothers

    Exodus 20:12

    Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God will give you.

    Psalm 139:13

    You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.

    Proverbs 14:1

    The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

    Proverbs 18:22

    He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.

    Proverbs 31:10-12 and 25-31

    A wife of noble character who can find?

    She is worth far more than rubies.

    Her husband has full confidence in her

    and lacks nothing of value.

    She brings him good, not harm,

    all the days of her life.

    She is clothed with strength and dignity;

    she can laugh at the days to come.

    She speaks with wisdom,

    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

    She watches over the affairs of her household

    and does not eat the bread of idleness.

    Her children arise and call her blessed;

    her husband also, and he praises her:

    "Many women do noble things,

    but you surpass them all."

    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;

    but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

    Give her the reward she has earned,

    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    There are more than 86 million moms in the United States and each May Americans devote a day to celebrating them. Whether you honor your mother this Sunday by surprising her with flowers or just a phone call, make sure she knows how much you appreciate everything she's done.

    MOTHER'S DAY QUOTES 2015

    "All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother." ― Abraham Lincoln

    “When your mother asks, 'Do you want a piece of advice?' it's a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.” ― Erma Bombeck

    “Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.” — Oprah Winfrey

    “It’s a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.” — Roald Dahl

    “You sacrificed for us. You the real MVP.” — Kevin Durant

    “A mother is always the beginning. She is how things begin.” ― Amy Tan

    "The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness." ― Honore de Balzac

    "Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to 'jump at de sun.' We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground." ― Zora Neale Hurston

    “There is nothing as sincere as a mother's kiss.” ― Saleem Sharma

    “A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ― Washington Irving

    “The best place to cry is on a mother’s arms.” — Jodi Picoult

    “I tell my kids, ‘I am thinking about you every other minute of my day.’” — Michelle Obama

    Motherhood Is an Experience Unlike Any Other

    Becoming a mother is a profound and unique adventure. Motherhood is an experience unlike any other on earth. There is nothing as profound, nothing that will stretch you so far beyond anything you previously imagined. It is remarkably challenging, vet uniquely rewarding at the same time. Other life experiences may bring you joy or fulfillment, or encourage you to grow, but none are on the same scale as becoming a mother.

    How would you describe the experience of becoming a mother? How could one describe the indescribable? How could you put into words what it is like to be the shepherd, the guardian, and the caretaker of a tiny, helpless human being . . . and to gradually wean and empower him or her to be able to live a healthy, happy, and successful life?

    The answer is that there is no one definitive answer. In its most elevated state, motherhood is awesome. When you look up the definition of "awesome," the dictionary says: "so impressive or overwhelming as to inspire a strong feeling of admiration or fear; grand, moving, frightening, majestic and lofty." This is the most inspirational element of motherhood-the soul-stirring aura of greatness that makes it so hard to define.

    Yet the job of mother most often plays itself out not on the lofty levels of Hallmark splendor, but rather in the trenches of day-to-day life. The greatest adventure lies somewhere between the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and the teaching of life lessons. Some days will be a placid and lazy cruise down the river, others will be a wild and furious ride through the rapids. One day you'll think you have it all figured out, and that, of course, is the day your son comes home with a note from his teacher alerting you to the fact that he is failing four subjects. Just when you think you can't take it anymore, a handmade Mother's Day card appears like a rainbow in a stormy sky. And right at the point when it all seems to come together, you take a second look and realize your baby is all grown up and in need of your services in an entirely different way.

    You can compare motherhood to any number of things: a diamond with many facets, an adventure, a miracle, a graduate course in the school of life. The truth is that it is all of these things and more. The process is unique to each woman, and no two mothers have the same exact experience. It is a rite of passage, a whole new level of responsibility, and a chance to explore and exercise your personal choices. However you experience the role of mother, you can be certain that it will be quite different from any other you have played in your life up until now.

    A New Level of Responsibility

    Having a child is different from buying a plant, getting a dog, or even getting married. A plant requires only the time it takes to water it A puppy needs the survival basics of food, water, walking, petting, bathing, and visits to the vet. Having a husband or wife comes the closest, in that it requires the advanced skills of communication, negotiation, give and take, nurturing, love, and intimacy. From love relationships, we learn how to incorporate an "other" into our innermost frame of reference. Becoming a mother is different, however, in that it requires ALL OF YOU.

    Motherhood is a unique relationship that involves total commitment. It is a twenty-four-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week job that begins the moment your child is born and doesn't end until the day you leave this world. It doesn't cease when you go to sleep. You don't really get breaks, unless you have child care or help from a family member. The responsibility doesn't stop when your child has her own home or her own family. Wherever you are, whatever you do, a small part of you is always aware that there is another being on this planet who is under your care and whose well-being affects you as much as your own does.

    The intense connection between a mother and her children brings with it a new level of responsibility. You are the one who watches over them, teaches them, and guides them. You are the person who nurtures their spiritual core and their well-being. You are responsible not only for making sure they know right from wrong and have a good sense of self-esteem, but also for seeing that they are wearing warm enough clothes and that they drink their milk. In the beginning, even their basic survival is your responsibility.

    For many new mothers, responsibility shows up first in caretaking. During the first few months of your baby's life, you learn how to meet his basic survival needs, which includes how to feed him, bathe him, care for him when he is ill, and soothe him into sleep at night. There is so much at first that goes into ensuring that this tiny being is safe and healthy. Like any other new skill set, it takes time to learn, and it can be overwhelming. But it is a very rewarding and important responsibility that should be done at your very best. Indeed it is an everyday learning experience.

    Personal stories From People Who Love Being Moms

    I Love Being a Mom

    Being a Mom I was told at a very young age that for me to have a child it may take some "work." As in, infertility issues. As I walked through life my dream of having a baby drizzled away with each step. At age 28, I married my best friend of 11 years. It was amazing to feel so totally in love with someone like that. (Still am!) We discussed children right away and both decided that really if we wanted one that it would be best to adopt. There were plenty of children out there who need good parents and homes. And that was it.

    Within 2 months of that conversation.... I got pregnant and our whole outlook changed. My son is over a year old now and I couldn't imagine a day without him or either of them. It is the most wonderful, scary thing when you walk out of that hospital with something so precious in your arms. To this day, I still can't believe they just "let" me leave with him. We are now in the process of trying to make a sibling!

    Funny how life can change in an instant....

    I Love Being a Mom

    Lifes Little Blessings I don't know where I would be today if I didn't have my children. I really don't wish to have it any other way. My children bring a smile to my face. I have five girls ages 3 to 13. They are all unique in their special ways and they are true blessings from God. If something ever happened to them I would not be able to go on. At times being a mom can be very stressful and frustrating. But you just have to learn to not sweat the small stuff in life. Instead enjoy it and learn from it. I cherish all the laughs and special times that I share with all of my children. I love knowing that they look up to me and I am so proud to be their mom! I am having the time of my life in this world with my little angels and I am excited for the years to come. In August we will be welcoming a new little one into our home..hoping for a boy but as long as baby is healthy that is all that I am really concerned about!

    I Love Being a Mom

    It Is the Best Job In the W...

    It is the best job in the world. To be a mother is to be blessed. Why some mothers abandon or abuse their children, I will never understand. Being a grandmother as well, is just one heck of an added bonus.

    I Love Being a Mom

    My Strong Child At 32 weeks I could feel familiar pressure on my belly however like 3 times before I thought it would stop. At 12 am I jumped out of bed in pain and my husband rushed me to the er. My son was born healthy 5 hours later. I had the sweetest new born and he sleeped all night from day one. He was great until 8 weeks when he got a rash on his face. I was told he needed cream and it would go away. However the rash got worse. I tried everything to control it and nothing worked. At 8 months he started to get sick a lot. My relationship was in a bad place and I was stressed. But my son was still his loving happy self. We learned he had an auto immune issue and needed a operation to help him hear . All of the ear infections caused him to lose hearing and form scars. He had to be in pain but he was so sweet and generally on great behaviour. At 2 he had a short operation and i learned to control his illness. He never made anything hard and just kept going. I feel so lucky to have such a great child. Even with everything he has had to deal with he is still smart kind happy and lovely.

    I Love Being a Mom

    its more amazing than I could of ever imagined. I never realized how happy and in love I could be. there's not a day that's passed that I for once haven't smiled.

    I Love Being a Mom

    Every Child Is Special, Every Child Is Perfect When I gave birth to my daughter 17 years ago, I thought I couldn't love any other child as much as I loved her. But now, when I've got five of them, I love them all equally. My sons, my daughters, all so different from each other but every one of them so smart and so nice. I couldn't be anything but proud and happy Mom especially when I remember all the troubles and problems with my pregnancies and deliveries.

    I Love Being a Mom

    I am the rock, the glue, the therapist, the teacher, the doctor, the cook, the maid, the taxi, the secretary. I keep the peace. I make and enforce the rules. I am the first one asked for and the last kiss goodnight. I am taken for granted but loved above all. I am needed. I am Mom.

    All those times I wish there were more of me. All those times I lie there staring at the ceiling in the dark doubting myself and worrying. All those times I think if I hear MOM!!! one more time I'm gonna blow....I remember. I remember when they were small. How it seems like just yesterday. How fast the time has flown, how full the years. How much less they need me now than they used to. I remember that the time is approaching for one to leave the nest and how soon the other will follow. I remember to cherish every secret, every hug, every question, every moment.... because they may always need me, but they will never again need me quite like this.

    I Love Being a Mom

    A Mom In My Eyes.

    A mom in my eyes is the best part of being in this world! Although its not always easy, I think being a mom is what I do best. I don't have to think of what to do. Its a natural instinct for me.

    Every second of every day is devoted to my children.

    They are the reason I continue to breathe.

    And they are the greatest gift that God has given me.

    I Love Being a Mom

    I love being a mom!!!!

    And I can hardly believe it. 2 years ago I peed on a stick and my heart stopped! My life was over! My body was ruined! I was pregnant!

    At 23 years my life wasn't together. We couldn't provide for a baby!! Should I abort it? Put it up for adoption?!

    I cried and cried and weighed my options, knowing that with every passing moment a baby was developing inside me.

    My husband shared none of my dread. He was overjoyed and shook his head at me lovingly when I listed all the reasons we couldn't be parents.

    Finally I pushed aside my fears and I embraced the pregnancy and I'm so thankful I did.

    Having a baby will change your life, but to me she made my life so much better! I can't wait to have more kids! I'm so thankful for our little OOps! She was what was always missing from our lives! I'm so thankful I'm a mother! I love our life!!

    I Love Being a Mom

    Mom

    One of the joyous parts of my life is being a mom. It is so rewarding and fullfilling. I stil remember to this day holding each of my children in my arms for the first time. Being nervous but at the same time feeling so right. Watching them grow, change, and experience together so much in life, I often look back on pictures and the memories now they are getting older, it just amazes me how much they have changed, how they have grown into teenagers and how lucky I am to experience being a mom.

    I Love Being a Mom

    My daughter is the best part of me. I absolutely adore her. She's the most precious part of my life & I'm grateful for being blessed with her.

    It was a hard road to get to. It took 3 years, 1 ectopic pregnancy & 4 miscarriages to conceive.

    She's my little miracle & I'm so in awe of everything she does. My heart just swells with pride for how she expresses her little self & how smart she is for her age.

    Right now we're working on sensory craft projects at home. Everyday we learn something new. Isn't it amazing how having a child makes everything new for us as adults? The simplicities we take for granted have all become majorly appreciated.

    Side story: the first time my daughter saw grass & sat on it. She was barely learning to sit herself up. It was a warm spring day & we tickled her feet with the funny feeling/looking green stuff. Let her touch & giggle. She played on it for awhile before being propped up for a picture. The doggie came over to give her a kiss! What a great day.

    What do you enjoy most about being a parent?

    I Love Being a Mom

    Oh God yes. My daughter is the best thing that ever happened to me. She makes me smile. Just to see her smile and hear her laugh, I know that I'm doing everything right. Not only does my little girl loves me. But I love her with all my heart. She is my angel. If it wasn't for my baby girl, I wouldn't be the mother I am today. You have no idea. She's my girl and I will put her first before anything.
