Thanks, mom, for sharing your faith with me, with my children, and with hundreds of others through times of glorious joy and times of darkest night. Happy Mother's Day and thank you for what you have done to bless all of our lives with grace and faith. Your life leads me to remember Paul's words to Timothy about the source of his faith:
I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. ... But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God–breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that all God’s people may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 1:5 3:17 TNIV).
