    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. I’m thankful for the fact that my mom let me live as there were many occasions I recall hearing those now-famous words – I brought you into this world, and I can take you out. πŸ™‚

      My Mom, having suffered 4 miscarriages before my birth, has been known to comment that I was the fifth.

    To my Mother.

    Out of Love, You said “I do”.
    Out of Love, You chose Life.
    Out of Love, You allowed God to work a Miracle within You.

    That Miracle,
    You carried,
    You bore,
    And introduced to the light of day.

    Out of Love, You nurtured,
    Out of Love, You fiercely protected,
    Out of Love, You mirrored, Innocence.

    You knew would be tried.
    You, the afflictions of the heart would not spare.
    But, by the Grace of God, You Loved.

    Because of Love, You bore the pain.
    Because of Love, You endured the rebuttals – the piercings of the Heart.
    Because of Love, You continued to show the way. Empowering your Love shoot to withstand that which You did, the fiery darts of he that is without hope and Love. You taught the Love of Christ – the way of the Cross.

    Your Love shoot:
    Grew, into his own.
    Grew upon the Love You bestowed.
    Struck out on His own path through the darkness, all that is the opposite of Love in this world.

    Because of Love, You fear.
    Because of Love, You regret your past shortcomings.
    Because of Love, You pray, day and night, God’s Spirit be with, the now young, spirited, courageous, perhaps a bit reckless Knight, and keep His eyes forever fixed on Truth, the way of Love, the way of the Cross.

    This Knight:
    His path, Yours, is forever sewn together by the thread of God’s Love, by Your hands, guided by God’s Holy Spirit.
    He, not perfect, falls many times but,
    He remembers.

    Because of Love, He remembers. He hears Your loving voice, teaching Him the Way of Christ – the Way of Love.
    Out of Love, God gave His only begotten Son. Love took upon Himself the Sins of the world, the afflictions of every living soul. Love carried the Cross for You, for Your young Knight. For the shortcomings, Love fell. For the tears shed, Love got up, carried His cross.
    Because of Love, Jesus gave His Life.
    Out of Love, God gave You, Your Knight, and all His souls, the Gift of Heaven.

    Your Knight:
    Yes, He remembers the Gifts of Love You have bestowed upon Him.
    He falls, but gets back up.
    He, injured, fights on because He remembers God’s Love, the Love You shared. You shared with Your Young Knight these Words from God: “Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect.
    Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice,
    And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace:
    In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one.
    And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God).”

    But most importantly, You instilled within the young Knight, Love. “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER FAILS.”

    The Miracle You bore,
    The Innocence You defended,
    The Love shoot You nurtured is,
    This Knight. This Knight is, Me, Your son.

    Because of Love, I remember.
    Because of Love, I will never forget You.
    Out of Love, I share and return the Gift.
    I, Knight, thank my Lord and Savior for You, Mother. I thank You.

    I Love You Mom.
    I wish a Blessed and Happy Mother’s Day to You! I also very much wish a Happy Mother’s Day to Mary, the Mother of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
    And to all the Mothers that God has blessed us with here at 4GFC,
