We all know them. We all have them in our lives.
If I could talk to everyone I know, I have no doubt I'd hear amazing stories about how many lives have been influenced by their moms, their grandmas, other relatives, someone else's mom, a family friend, a teacher, a mentor, or some other motherly figure.
The moms and women in our lives play such an important role. When Paul wrote to Titus (Titus 2:4-8), he included some instruction for women in the church. The older women are to teach the younger women.
Be kind, be pure, love your husbands and children, think before you act.
In all things show them how to live by your life and by right teaching. You should be wise in what you say. Then the one who is against you will be ashamed and will not be able to say anything bad about you.
These relationships between the older women and the younger women are invaluable. It is a blessing to know that CFC is full of so many of these types of relationships.
Thank you to all of the women who have invested in the lives of their children, their grandchildren, their neighbors, their students, their friends, and everyone else. You are appreciated, loved, and valued. One day is hardly enough to celebrate all that you do for those you love.
Congratulations to all of CFC's new moms who are celebrating their first Mother's Day today.
