Father God, thank you for creating mothers. Thank you for the nest of bluebird chicks peeping outside my window, almost ready to transition to fledglings. Thank you for my own fledglings, now grown and successful adults. Thank you for my mother, who raised two sets of twins. Thank you that she planted the seed of your gospel in me. Thank you for this day to celebrate mothers across the nation, in the name of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” (3 John 4 ESV)
