~For the Mothers in my Life~

"If I am Thy child, only God, it is because Thou gavest me such a mother." -Augustine

I bless God with a sincere and deep gratitude for the three holy mothers in my life. My first mother (Sherry Dickinson) bore me next to her heart for nine months and has continued to carry me in her heart with love, instruction, and prayer for these following 36 years; I am who I am due to God blessing my life with my mother. My second mother (Martha Bryan) has done the same in such an excellent way so as to replicate her noble self in the lady who is now my wife and mother of our children; I am a blessed man due to the mother of my wife. The third mother in my life (Heather Dickinson) is my wife and the mother of our children. I now sit here staring at the computer unable to find sufficient words to praise her enough. She is beyond precious and virtuous, and she excels my ability to laud her as she deserves; I and our children are filled with joy to belong to her life. "Thank you, God, for Heather!"

Regarding our three mothers: "Her children arise up, and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates." -Proverbs 31:28-31

Daddy asked if I had gone to your family blog and with that suggestion I did. Thank you son for your very nice words about the Mothers in your life. You are a son that is easy to love and I do just that, Moma

I just now read this post. Thank you, Phillip, for your kind words about your mother. And, I am delighted with your opinion of Martha and Heather. I am in total agreement with your description of them. And, I too, was blessed when you received Heather as your wife, and Martha as your mother-in-law. I never dreamed, those years ago when you came into my life, all the blessings I would receive because of you being born.
Jesus is good to us, isn't he!

Beautifully said and I'm sure all three of them live up to everything you said. How sweet of you to honor them in such a beautiful way.
