Mother’s Day …
A day when we traditionally put on our Sunday best, try to fight the crowds to go out and eat, and really try really hard to not give Mom a hard time. Well, I got to thinking while reading over Proverbs 31 today. Why is it, that if God’s Word ordains that we lift up our mom’s (and wives) on a daily basis, and show them the respect that is deserved, does it become such a chore for us to do the very same thing on just one certain day? Perhaps if we did it more often (like every day), then we could focus on making Mother’s Day really special; and do something other than the norm?
I’m just thinking of course … Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!
Every day I am less and less surprised by the way we treat one another. What is really cracking my skull today is the witch-hunt that is underway against Carrie Prejean because she spoke her mind and answered the whole “traditional marriage” question honestly. Now, the “dirt” (I am speaking directly to the one who has raised it) has risen to surface and continues to attempt to tear this lady down.
So, she posed for a few pictures as a young wanna-be model (see: http://tinyurl.com/cha242). Now, let me be clear and say that I cannot say I approve of the action, but it’s over and done with and who am I to judge anyone? Should she have disclosed that fact to the California committee on her application? Of course … so let’s slap the wrist and move on. But today there is a media whirlwind which has every news station broadcasting live updates from this “committee” that is meeting to determine if she keeps her crown awarded in California. Seriously, is this really breaking news? Or, is this particular nonsense more backlash from her answer to traditional marriage during the Miss USA Pageant? It is certainly worth asking the question, in my humble opinion.
Personally, I pray that her faith remains strong, and they she does not compromise from the pressure of the media; and by all accounts she is staying the course. To that I say, “Well done my sister, well done indeed.”
