Sometimes when I hang out with my mother, there are times people believe we're a couple. It makes mom feel encouraged for someone to assume she's younger than her age.
Mom and I have an extraordinary bond. I'm not sure if it is because I'm her firstborn child, but I know that there have been occasions where I have disappointed her by my actions. She chose to discipline me when I was younger, no matter how difficult it may have been for her.
Looking back, the things she instilled in me benefited me greatly as I got older. It didn't always make sense why I had to do certain chores, but she instilled in me the pride of doing things right and the importance of working hard.
I learned that nothing is given to you but is earned through planning, preparation, and discipline. To this day, I still remember some of the painful times of growth from the lovingkindness of my mother.
My mother is the biggest supporter of my writing exploits these days. She was always encouraging me to write more ever since she discovered my proficiency at poetry. If you are blessed to have your mother still with you, express your love for her this weekend. It will give you both tremendous joy!
The Furnace of Affliction
God moves in our lives because He loves us too much to see us continue in our sin, remain in a lukewarm spiritual state, or go unfulfilled in His purposes for our lives. God loves us too much to see us remain as we are.”
