Mother's Day!

My mother is a Christian,
In every important way;
The fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT
Is displayed in her every day.
My mother is filled with kindness,
With love and joy and peace;
Her patience and her goodness
Inspire, and never cease.
She follows our LORD JESUS
With faithfulness, and more;
She’s gentle and has self control,
She knows what prayer is for.
Thanks, Mom, for being a Christian,
And showing me how to be;
I’ll follow your example
For all eternity.

"Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me." — PSALM 27:10

Even though I was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota & was not adopted by you & Dad until I was a year old, you are the only mother I know.

"Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother." — Oprah Winfrey

The courthouse in Stillwater, Minnesota is where you officially became my mother & I thank our Sweet Heavenly FATHER for that!

"The adopted child is treated by law as if he or she had been born to the adopting parents upon the entry of the final adoption decree." — Intestate Inheritance Rights for Adopted Persons

Here is the definition of adoption from Wikipedia: Adoption is a process whereby a person assumes the parenting for another who is not kin and, in so doing, permanently transfers all rights and responsibilities from the original parent or parents. Unlike guardianship or other systems designed for the care of the young, adoption is intended to effect a permanent change in status and as such requires societal recognition, either through legal or religious sanction.

Why have I not filled out the paperwork to begin the process of finding information about my birth mother?

"On Mother's Day I have written a poem for you. In the interest of poetic economy and truth, I have succeeded in concentrating my deepest feelings and beliefs into two perfectly crafted lines: You're my mother, I would have no other!" —  Forest Houtenschil

"Your mother was like a vine in your vineyard planted by the water; it was fruitful and full of branches because of abundant water." — EZEKIEL 19:10

What exemplifies the kind of mother you have been to me?

"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." — Tenneva Jordan

Peter said to HIM, "We have left everything to follow YOU!" "I tell you the truth," JESUS replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for ME and the Gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age and in the age to come, eternal life." — MARK 10:28-30

The LORD had many plans for me to do in my life that would have been impossible without your love!

"Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible." — Marion C. Garretty

"Praise be to the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in CHRIST.

For HE chose us in HIM before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in HIS sight.

In love HE predestined us to be adopted as HIS sons through JESUS CHRIST, in accordance with HIS pleasure and will — to the praise of HIS glorious grace, which HE has freely given us in the ONE HE loves." — EPHESIANS 1:3-6

Just as GOD the FATHER predestined all who know JESUS CHRIST as their LORD & SAVIOR, HE also knew all along that the best possible way for me to have a life full of blessings, was for you to be my mother!

Since I am unable to give you an orchid in person, I hope that you will enjoy this cyber-orchid even though it fails to compare to the variety of beautiful orchids that I see in my lakeside garden & patio!


"When you look into your mothers eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth." — Mitch Albom 

If you have a few moments, enjoy these photos that express the tenderness that I was blessed to experience because you're my Mom!

"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things & crushes down remorselessly all that stands it its path." — Agatha Christie
