Weekend Web Wanderings: Mother’s Day Edition

Here are links to what I wrote last year leading up to Mother’s Day: My Mom Taught Me: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

 

ARTICLES:

This Mother’s Day, Don’t Worry (Colin Smith) “To all mothers reading this article, I hope you will have a wonderful Mother’s Day and that you will feel the blessing and honor of the gift and calling that God has given to you in motherhood.”

8 Things I Want My Toddler to Thank His Mom For (In 20 Years) (Carl Laferton) “But what do I hope he will say thank you for, in 20 years, as he looks back on having grown up with a Christian mother? Here’s what I’d love him to say as a 22-year-old, as he gives his mom some Mother’s Day chocolates (chocolates, not flowers, son—chocolates tend to get shared with fathers, while flowers just get looked at on mantelpieces).”

Her Children Arise and Call Her Blessed (David Mathis) “Whether Mother’s Day for you is bittersweet, or just plain sweet, here is perhaps the single most significant thing to celebrate in a Christian mother, and aspire to be with what life we have left to live: bringing the Scriptures near to our children.”

Good News For Mother’s Day (Kimm Crandall) “You see, this thing called Motherhood is not about us. It’s not about being the “Best Mom Ever.”Motherhood is not about loving our children perfectly; it’s about needing a Savior, because we fail to do just that.”
