Traditionally, people have chosen May as the month to honor and celebrate mothers. My children like to show their love by purchasing perenials at the local nursery. My youngest struggles to carry the biggest trays he can find, while my daughter looks for the brightest shades of pink, hoping to Barbie up the yard a shade or two.
I like to honor my own mother by taking time out of my day to visit with her. I’ll often bring flowers for the garden too, since it’s a hobby we both have in common. And while I’m there I might dig a hole or two out back so she can easily sink them in.
Time spent with loved ones serves to remind us how precious they are. And from that, just how precious our Father is for this gift of love.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
~I Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV)
