Yesterday was Mother’s Day! My husband took our family to First Baptist Atlanta to hear Dr. Charles Stanley preach per my request. It was a wonderful sermon about raising children, and was such a blessing to hear. He touched on points such as, even if they do not quite understand it, children need to be taught in truth at a very young age, and some of the problems in today’s society have resulted because children of our time have never really experienced need. He stated that if children never experience need, it is difficult for them to understand that they need God.
We took a quick photo before leaving since it was Mother’s Day. One of the tricks that my girls and I have for dressing modestly is to wear tank tops backwards under our outfits! Most of these tops are much higher cut in the back. For a little more on our family’s view on modesty, take a look here.
Also, Mother’s Day kicked off the Baby Bottle Change Drive taking place in most Crisis Pregnancy Centers in our area. We are filling up baby bottles full of change, bills, and even checks to donate to the centers. This fundraiser is running from Mother’s Day until Father’s Day.
Why not take a moment and check with your local center to see if they are offering this fundraiser as well? If they are not participating, donations of any kind are appreciated year round. Helping these little children and their mothers is truly rewarding.
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
What we do “to the least of these” parallels what we have done for Jesus. What a perspective! Let’s keep pressing forward doing for others as we would do unto Christ.
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
Galatians 6:9 (NLT)
