Please indulge me this day as I take some personal privilege to honor an important person in my life as part of this devotional writing. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Reading: John 19: 25-27
She is a great woman. Small, petite, usually with a smile on her face. She is humble. She does not boast about her works. She cares for her family, not expecting praise for her actions.
She does not yell when she is angry. She finds other outlets for her anger, only occasionally raising her voice when it is really needed.
She is willing to help her fellow humans, volunteering her time for worthwhile causes, lending a hand to others.
A teacher is she. Once by trade, now by instinct. Still showing her children how to do life's chores and to be a better man and woman.
What role model is she. What standards she has set. What love and knowledge she has passed down a generation. And, because she is a quiet woman, a happy woman, a caring woman, and a teacher, her legacy will live for generations.
She is my mother and I love her, not just today on her birthday, but everyday.
