Takeaway Tuesdays: Proverbs 16:3

There’s a lot of “newness” going on in my nuclear family’s lives, specifically in the work department. All the men in my family (Pops, Luke, and Jordan) are all starting new job ventures within the month. I am thinking and praying this verse over them all as they remember that ultimately, our job on Earth is to build God’s Kingdom. We are His, and our plans are always in His hands.

To My Mum, On Mother’s Day

Dear Mum,

I love celebrating you today. You are perfectly created to be the woman most valued in my life. God knew what He was doing when He picked you for me. I love that we are mother and daughter, and now, even more, friends. You are the first person I want to call when I am upset or when I have accomplished something great. You encourage me, pray for me, and guide me. Your work as a nurse has been inspiring- so much so, two of your children have followed in your footsteps career-wise. Your bubbly spirit is infectious, and joy is evident in your life.

Today, I wanted to say thanks. Thanks for being my person. You just get me, and I don’t have to explain myself when I’m with you. The best compliment I can receive is when someone says, “You’re just like your mother.” I love you so much Mum. Happy day to you!
