Happy Monday, SHINE girls!

This week we will be honoring a few of our precious Mothers. I love this special week because it is so important that we honor our beloved Mothers.

Many of you have lost your Mothers, and this week holds much pain for you. I pray the Lord will ease your pain and fill your heart with unspeakable peace. 

Some of you may have never known your Mothers, but you know someone that has filled a Mothers role in your life. Or maybe it's you that's filling the role as "Mother" in someone's life. 

Let's seek the Lord this week and ask Him how we can honor the Mothers in our lives this week. Maybe an aunt, a grandparent, or an older friend has stepped in and guided you when you needed it most. Honor her this week.

"Honor your Father and your Mother, that your days may
be long in the land the Lord your God is giving you."
Exodus 20:12


It can be really easy to take our Mothers for granted. They often go unnoticed and overlooked. If you are a Mother, you know exactly what I'm talking about. 

Let's strive for better this week. 

Lord, help us to honor our Mothers in a way that is pleasing to you. Many of us have lost our Mothers, but we have women in our lives who have guided us and taught us. Thank you for these precious women. Bless them in a huge way this week. Teach us to honor them and love them as you would have us to love them. Lord, thank you for the women that are filling the Mother role for those left orphaned and abandoned by their families. We know they are especially cared for and looked after by You. Our hearts long to honor You by obeying Your commands, Father. Thank you for Motherhood and all that it entails. In Jesus name, Amen.
