Thoughts on Mothers Day
My mother is now in her Heavenly Home, but I'd like to dedicate 
the following verses to her.

I give thanks to God always for you (Mom), making mention of you in my prayers, remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father... 1 Thessalonians 1:1-3

I am so grateful for all my Mom taught me
-not only in practical life skills but above all In choosing what was right 
in the sight of God.
I encourage those of you whose mothers are still with you
to pray regularly for your moms, thank them often for their self sacrifice
and encourage them by choosing to spend time with them.

In so doing we are pleasing God who placed us in our families
and wants us to honour our parents.

Happy Mothers' Day to each one of you.


  1. Beautiful thoughts. Happy Mother's Day to you!

  2. Happy Mothers Day to all of you. I just received this site yesterday and so enjoy it! I came from a mennonite family as well. Derksen family. My Mother passed away 10 years ago. She was awesome. Raised 8 children basically by herself. She did everything except cook well. However her perogies were the best I have EVER tasted. I look forward to trying out your recipes. I do have the Mennonite Treasurey book. Use it often. God Bless You. Edna

  3. Happy Mother's Day to all of you ladies at MGCC! Thank you for all the work behind this blog, which I enjoy daily!

    Lovely post today and a great reminder to pray for our moms. :)

  4. Your blog inspires me everyday.
    Happy Mothers Day to you all.


  5. Lovely verse to use in relation to Moms.
