Happy Mother's Day

This day is a day to celebrate the woman who gave life to us, our mothers. I want to honor my mom today with her very own blog post. I believe that she fits the Proverbs 31 description of a godly woman.

An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels.~ Proverbs 31:10

My mother, Dana, married my father, Mike, on September 10, 1988.

The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life. ~Proverbs 31:11-12

This is a picture of our whole family on Easter in of 1999[I think].

Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also, and he praises her, saying: "Many daughters have done nobly, but you excel them all." ~ Proverbs 31:28-29

Mom, Dad and Emily on vacation!

Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.~Proverbs 31:25-26

Mom and Cara at Little Flock.[ The picture is a little dusty]

She girds herself with strength and makes her arms strong. She senses that her gain is good, her lamp does not go out at night.~ Proverbs 31:17-18

The most recent picture of our wonderful mother. We LOVE you mom!
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.~ Proverbs 31:30
