Mother’s Day Gifts

May 8, 2013

Deep-tissue Swedish massage with hot stones. Spa pedicure. Manicure with moisture mask and paraffin dip. Eyelash extensions. Why are all Mother’s Day gifts found at the spa?

If you’re like me, you’ve received emails in the past few days advertising these kinds of special treats designed to delight and pamper your Mom this Mother’s Day. Sure, I love a good manicure like most gals I know, but none of these things would make my Mother’s Day special.

What would make it special? Joy. And not just any joy.

3 John 1:4 says “I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.”

Nothing stirs my heart like knowing – not just guessing – but knowing down to my marrow that my children are walking in the truth. Knowing God more deeply, loving Him with the whole of their lives, letting Him shape them to be who He’s had in mind for them to be all along.

I’ll be talking about this and more this Sunday at Ironbridge Baptist Church at 9:00 and 10:30am in Chesterfield, VA. Join us as we worship Him, celebrate moms, and find some real joy.
