Happy Birthday Mom!!

I have a wonderful mom!  She is always working, playing, teaching, or ministering to someone.  Through all our petty sibling arguments, she prays for guidance on how to teach us to treat each other in a Christ like way.  When we are having a hard time with school, she explains until we finally understand.  Waking up early in the morning, to say goodbye to dad when he leaves for work and staying up till 11:30 pm, when Mirae falls asleep. 

 I know it has been hard on all of us to move after being in the same house for 16 years, especially hard on mom. Yet, she has toughed it out.  Scheduling the countless inspections, insulation services, roofing company estimates, painting and stripping wall paper.  Every job around the house, big or small, she does them all for Christ and her family.  Thank you mom!!!!  Happy birthday! 

A Christ-honoring homemaker who is industrious and is about the business of serving her King is worth far more than money can buy. Her worth is far above rubies. She is working to build Christ's Kingdom! When done unto the Lord, wiping noses, cleaning up spilled milk, and speaking wisdom into the lives of children is the kind of work that lasts forever and ever. That is one thing the world will never understand, try as they might; you just can't place a dollar value on something as noble and beautiful as homemaking. A Corner Pillar

Working,
Playing,

Ministering,
Yesterday was really mom's birthday.  She spent the day cleaning and helping us get ready for our Bright Lights meeting.  What better example of servant leadership can you find?!

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies." -Proverbs 31:10
