The Best Mother's Day

Being a mom is one of the greatest gifts in the world.  To be honest, I think it ranks second to the debt Jesus paid for us on the cross.  I have been very fortunate in my life to have the best mom, two extraordinary grandmas who now watch over is from heaven, and countless other women who have served as great motherly role models to me so Mother's Day has always been special to me.  It has become even more special now that I have two wonderful children of my own.  Every time Makenna or Beckham tell me Happy Mother's Day or hand me a homemade card my heart just melts.  And of course, the flowers and others gifts are nice as well, but none of those hold a candle to the Mother's Day gift I received this year.

Today God answer my biggest prayer as a mother and saved our precious daughter today at the end of our church service.  There is nothing more in this world that I want for my kids than for them to have a personal relationship with Jesus and today I got to experience and witness the greatest joy I have had so far as a parent. To God be all the glory.
