hats off to you!

"Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings..." Psalm 17:8

Testing, reports, projects and more testing... it's the crazy end-of-school year mode.  But despite the frenzy, many teachers carve out time to prepare special keepsakes for Mother's Day.  

                                                                          Laminating the special bookmarks, poems and hats, i couldn't keep from reading what students wrote.  The love and devotion between mother and child, clearly showed through their words and drawings.  Most children have no idea the impact it will probably have on their mother.   Not only can i imagine how much their moms will treasure the gift, i understand from experience.

Because you see, i still have my bookmark, tattered and faded, from ten years ago, in my favorite Book.

Whether a mother by blood or by love, never underestimate your power and influence on the children in your path.  You are the apple of their eye, as well as our Father's.  They notice what we do, as our Father notices all we do too.  

For every child's heart you have touched, Happy Mother's Day! You are special and greatly loved.

have a bless-filled day!
