A Mother’s Care
By:Rick Boxx
May 6, 2016

As a child I took for granted all that my mother did to provide for our needs. My mother worked a full-time job with the Internal Revenue Service, then came home to manage a household with five children!

She would feed us, clothe us, care for the house, take us to church, and still rise early to go to work each day. Yet, I don’t remember much grumbling from her.

The author of Proverbs 31 wrote, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done.”

As a parent, I now better appreciate my mother’s amazing effort and perseverance. This weekend is a great time to honor your mother. Thanks, Mom, for all you’ve done!
