As we sang “Count your many blessings” yesterday in church, I could not help but thank the Lord for my mom! Her selfless love to lay a solid biblical foundation by homeschooling is a blessing that we as her children cannot thank her for enough. And now her constant support has encouraged us like nothing else could, as we endeavor to pursue God’s best in our lives. She has blessed us in many ways: Her prayers for us, her care packages of wonderful granola bars and pumpkin bread, her helpful hands as we began selling things at the farmer’s market, her words of advice on how to teach music, her willingness to preserve the deer and garden produce during harvest time and prepare healthful meals. But even better is simply who she is – A godly lady who is fun to be with and loves us. What a joy it was to pick out flowers for her on Saturday, sing “Happy Mother’s Day to You” at every possible opportunity and spend Sunday together! Mom, you are a blessing. God is working through you in amazing ways!
