Dear Mother

      A few months after Sharil and I married, I noticed something about my Mother.  She seemed to be getting smarter by the day. I also noticed that in my Mother–in-Law Mrs. Wanda Curtis.
      It seems as we grow up, and as we start stretching our wisdom, and noticing how thin it is getting, those around us who have been around the block before us are suddenly wiser.  I am certain when Sharil became a Mother, all that had happened to her while she was carrying our baby was exciting and burdensome.  In her thoughts, this was the first time for anybody.  Terrie’s baby book is complete, while Nora’s is just the opposite.
      Just as the verse below depicts, time and energy is required, and now with two children, most of what is going on is old hat.  Now she listens to other Mothers who also went through the same experience.
      The hard part of all of this is our parting, when we would really like to just sit down, talk, and ask the questions, which now will remain unanswered, until that day we are re-united in spirit and love.
      Today is a day we Honor our Mothers.  It is a day we may choose a few timely minutes to reflect on Mom.  Men praise your wives who have given you your children.  Children praise your Mother, your Grandmothers, all of your Maternal past. They are what made you.  Bless them.

Bro John R. E Chastain

Proverbs 31:26-30  She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.  (27)  She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.  (28)  Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.  (29)  Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.  (30)  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
