“Mother – Just Like Glue”

Posted: May 4, 2010 in Christian Life, Dispensations, Mothers, Prayer, Uncategorized

  “His mother had just returned from the hospital.  She had been away for such a long time, at least it seemed long to her little boy.  But now she was at home again, and he was beside himself with excitement.  As soon as he could put his thoughts into words, he exclaimed, ‘Mother, you’re just like glue!’  At first she did not understand what he meant by such an odd expression.  But he continued, ‘I mean you hold us together.  When you are gone, we just fall apart. Sister lives in one place, Buddy somewhere else, and Daddy and I get along by ourselves.  You’re just the stuff that keeps us together.’” – Author unknown.

Angels Unaware

  “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels” (Hebrews 13:2).  Without your being aware of it, you may have one living in your home at this very moment.

  She cooked the breakfast first of all, / Washed the cups and plates, / Dressed the children and made sure / Stockings all were mates.

  Combed their hair and made their beds, / Sent them out to play. / Gathered up their motley toys, / Put some books away.

  Dusted chairs and mopped the stairs, / Ironed an hour or two, / Baked a jar of cookies and a pie, / Then made a stew.

  The telephone rang constantly, / The doorbell did the same, / A youngster fell and stubbed his toe, / And then the laundry came.

  She picked up blocks and mended socks, / And then she cleaned the stove. / And when her husband came at six He said: “I envy you! / It must be nice to sit at home without a thing to do!” (Husband since has disappeared)  -Author unknown.

What’s A Grandmother?

  “In the eyes of a child a grandmother is a lady who has no children of her own. She likes other people’s little girls and boys. A grandfather is a man grandmother. He goes for walks with the boys, and they talk about fishing and stuff like that.

  “Grandmothers don’t have to do anything except to be there. They’re so old that they shouldn’t play hard or run. It is enough if they drive us to the market where the pretend horse is, and have lots of dimes ready. Or if they take us for walks, they should slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars. They should never say ‘hurry up.’

  “Usually, grandmothers are fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes. They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums off. Grandmothers don’t have to be smart, only answer questions like, “Why isn’t God married?” and “How come dogs chase cats?”

  “Grandmothers don’t talk baby talk like visitors do, because it is hard to understand. When they read to us they don’t skip or mind if it is the same story over again. Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if they don’t have a television, because they are the only grown-ups who have time.” – Author Unknown

A Word To Mothers

  Whether you realize it or not, you hold in your hands a life that some day will affect others too for good or for evil.  Please don’t minimize the role you have in the development of your child.  Your prayers can’t change things but God can change things when you pray properly.  If you are Christian mother you have eight ways to communicate with God: worship, praise, thanksgiving, supplication, intercession, asking in Jesus’ name, confession, and making vows.  By staying in touch with God through His Word and prayer and relying on Him you’ll gain the strength you need to do your work well.

  The Apostle John wrote: “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3 John 4).  Absolute truth is found in the Scriptures.  Knowing which part of it is “for” you and which part is “to” you will keep much confusion away. “Be diligent [study] to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).   Our “Dispensational Chart” can help you see the different economies God uses to test man’s obedience.

  Let’s honor the woman who brought us into this world so we may live longer on the earth and glorify God.  No human mother (or father) is perfect as God is.  He is the standard and we, as Christians,  should desire to be like Him by exhibiting the Fruit of the Spirit (Christ likeness) in our daily lives (Galatians 5:22, 23).
