Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, with Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, we all want to make our parents proud. On Mother's Day, we thank You for the women who gave birth to us, who raised us, and who nurtured us. We remember that the Fifth Commandment tells us to honor our father and mother. Help us keep Your commandments and do our best to make our parents proud. Thank You for my Mother and Father.
Here is a poem for our Moms, author unknown:
Thank you, Mom. I know how often I took you for granted when I was growing up. I always assumed you'd be there when I needed you ... and you always were. But I never really thought about what that meant until I got older and began to realize how often your time and energy were devoted to me. So now, for all the times I didn't say it before, Thank you, Mom ... I love you so very much.
Some of us have Moms who have gone on ahead of us to their heavenly home. We all know that our days on this planet are numbered - that we are born to die, we can see that in every graveyard and every cemetery, which testifies that the Bible is true. We all need to be prepared so that when You, Lord, call us home, we are ready to go. We just learned that within the last two weeks, four Moms have flown away to be with You. We like Proverbs 31:28, "Her children arise up, and call her blessed ..." and we have seen that in the families that these dear Moms have left behind.
While the world around us is still in such turmoil, Your peace, dear Lord, needs to live in our hearts as we look for Your triumphant return. Thank You, Lord, for our dear Mothers.
