Her children rise up and call her blessed
Updated: May 14, 2018
Mother's are a powerful force that God designed. The characteristics God embedded into women create a being who is kind, humble, comforting, gentle, patient, tough, strong, forgiving, attentive, hard-working, selfless, all while showing us unconditional love. We have a special bond with our mother's, and there is no one quite like mom.
You see, mother's have a heart like God's. Just as God sustains us, cares for us, teaches us, guides us, and aides us, a mother's role is one and the same. We often think of God as a father figure, but when we think of humanity, we must remember that we ALL are image bearers of God. Both males and females reflect God's character. A father may lead the household, but a mother sets the tone, and her attitude and care keeps the home running. She is a force that can cannot be matched. A mother's love is so strong that it gives her children the courage to go out and take on the world. A mother's love can make you feel invincible.
"Interestingly, when the Lord brought the woman to the man, Adam said “‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:23-24). The two become one flesh (Matthew 19:5). Therefore, ideally the joining of man and woman in holy matrimony (instituted from the beginning of creation by God) reflects a more complete likeness of God than either man or woman by themselves. Clearly, both male and female reflect the attributes of God and together we see a fuller representation of God’s character."
Yes, she can be also be emotional, over dramatic, a worrier, and the person who says what we don't want to hear.
But no matter what, they are almost always, our biggest fans and supporters. Everything she does, she does with love. She brings order to the chaos. She sacrifices over and over again. She is strong and wise and will protect us no matter the cost. Never forget all she's done for you, and everything she has sacrificed along the way.
She selects wool and flax and works with willing hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from far away. She rises while it is still night and provides food for her household and portions for her female servants. She evaluates a field and buys it; she plants a vineyard with her earnings. She draws on her strength and reveals that her arms are strong. She sees that her profits are good, and her lamp never goes out at night. She extends her hands to the spinning staff, and her hands hold the spindle. Her hands reach out to the poor, and she extends her hands to the needy. She is not afraid for her household when it snows, for all in her household are doubly clothed. She makes her own bed coverings; her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known at the city gates, where he sits among the elders of the land. She makes and sells linen garments; she delivers belts to the merchants. Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom and loving instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle. Her sons rise up and call her blessed. Her husband also praises her: “Many women are capable, but you surpass them all!”
