Fond Birthday Wishes

We interrupt this regularly scheduled program to bring you a sappy message on the occasion of my mother’s birthday. If you skip past, it’s okay.

Mother’s Day

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.” ~ Proverbs 18:22 The above verse may be true, but I think that verse is a little incomplete without something: “He who finds a wife [who will make a good mother] finds what is good…”   Mothers are vital.
