May 10, 2010, "A Year Ago Today"

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell

The following post was written a year ago today...'Mother's Day'...I know today is Monday, but please be blessed by this message as I was. If you know anyone who would find this as an embrace from the Lord, please forward it on...


"Her children rise up and call her blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied); and her husband boasts of and praises her [saying], "Many daughters have done virtuously, nobly, and well [with the strength of character that is steadfast in goodness], but you excel them all."
~ Proverbs 31:28 ~


This is to honor every woman who is a mother. Especially the one's who have endured miscarriages. Just know that just because you may not have carried that precious child in your arms, your womb carried what your arms could not embrace. The precious child heard your heartbeat of love on their behalf. They knew as their mother you wanted more for them than you ever wanted for yourself. I honor you today especially, as God embraces you with His comfort, grace and unfailing love.

If you are expecting to meet your little one soon, Happy Mother's Day, as you will be elated. Will it change your life? Yes! In the best way ever. After you have your precious child, you will have memories of your baby being with you, even though they weren't really there. Why? Because once you meet your child, it is unfathomable to imagine life without that little person. It is amazing, yet true. Watch and see!

If you have little one's at home and as they annihilate you with great love on Mother's Day, may you know that they rise up and call you blessed as they know they get to call you, "Mom"!

If you have teenager's at home and they annihilate you with great love on Mother's Day, may you know that they rise up and call you blessed as you are assisting them through this monumental time in their life. If you have teenagers that seem to not care or don't care, just know that one day they will rise up and call you blessed that you were there for them in that difficult time of their life. They will look back and say, "I know how blessed I am to have her as my mother."

If you have young adults that you rarely see; maybe in college or they are in a far off land, even serving our country, may you know that they rise up and call you blessed as they have you fervently pray to God on their behalf.

If you have children that are now married and have their own families that they are now raising, may you know that they do rise up and call you blessed as you are their mother. They know, "my mom is just a phone call away", if they need your counsel. Now they have children that call your daughter who is their mother blessed.

If you have lost a child at any stage of their life whether it was from the womb, infant, toddler, child, teenager, young adult or as an adult, may you know you are comforted by Almighty God. As you look to Him for your strength, as we all rise up together and call HIM Blessed as there is NO ONE ELSE LIKE OUR GOD.

We are truly blessed on Mother's Day. May we look at our children as our gifts, not in what they do but from Whom we received them from. Any gift is wonderful, but our children are one of our greatest gifts from God. To be able to receive a name called, "MOM" on this earth is nothing short of amazing, even when we think our children may have worn out that name, it is the greatest name to be called as we are crowned with that beautiful name, 'Mom'.

Happy Mother's Day!
