I am home for now. I celebrated Mother's Day with my family. And I celebrated it big! (ok, not really) i went to church were we read 1 Samuel 1-2:11 and it was very nice. It was about Hannah and how she was faithful in praying to God for a son and even though she didnt know if God would fullfill his promise, she still remained faithful in the hope that he would. And what I find awe inspiring in this story is that Hannah cried out "O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you. He will be yours for his entire lifetime, and as a sign that he has been dedicated to the Lord, his hair will never be cut." I don't know about you, but I don't know any mother who would be willing to sacrifice their son for God. It shows honor, and respect. And what is more amazing to me, is that when the child was weaned (about 3 years old) she gave him to the church. And God used him in a huge way. That is something no one (except for God) could have ever known. I dont think i could do that to my child. I thought of my sponsored kids. And the children I saw at the countries we have visited. I thought, "What if that was one of mine?" but with the false religions our children are exposed to, I know that sacrificing children in some religions is acceptable. But, in today's society, if we did that, we would have IRS on us faster than anyone I know. That is amazing. But then again, I also believe that if Jesus roamed Earth like he did 2,000 years ago, he would be in a mental hospital. And diagnosed with insanity. Who knows? Maybe most people in mental institutions are probably as smart as Jesus, just misunderstood and not accepted by society.

I think of my sponsored kids and how they celebrated Mother's Day. And since all my kids have moms its going to be interesting to see how they celebrated it.

How did your mother's day go?
