BUT... what have I been focusing on so very much? ME... and what is our purpose while we live on this earth in this life? To give GLORY TO GOD in EVERYTHING that we think, say, and do. Was I shining Jesus in these thoughts and my grumpy attitude? NO! It was all about ME.
So this year, I choose to be happy and thank God for all that I have and that HE thought about me long before Mother's Day and long before each birthday, and HE gave me the best gift in the world that could make me feel special: the gift of forgiveness through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ!
If I want to do something special for these two days every year, I will plan it. I will stop hoping and expecting to feel special through other's actions. I am special to my family and I choose to embrace that. Amen!
Psalm 19:14, “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
