Anna Reeves Jarvis was responsible for the first large-scale celebration of Mother’s Day in 1908, in Grafton, West Virginia, in honor of her mother, who had spent many years of her life working in public service. In 1912, Mother’s Day became an official holiday. Mother’s Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May.
It has been said “that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” William Ross Wallace, 1865.
A godly mother is a blessing from head to toe:
- Her mind is centered on the well-being of her family.
- Her eyes are always open to the needs of others.
- Her nose leads her in solving problems.
- Her mouth speaks words of wisdom.
- Her ears listen to the smallest need.
- Her hands bring beauty as they serve.
- Her feet walk in the path of duty and righteousness.
God bless “the hand that rocks the cradle.”
“Give her of the fruit of her hands and let her own works praise her in the gates.” (Proverbs 31:30)
Happy Mother’s Day!
