Giving Honor

Giving Honor

 

One last post as we prepare for my mom’s memorial service. 

Going through pictures has shown me aspects of my own mother’s life with which I was not familiar. I’d heard stories, but some of these pictures were definitely new to me.

Maybe I get my love for mountain biking from my mom after all!!! 

My prayer for her service on Saturday is for the experience to honor her. In doing that, I’m sure we all will be encouraged, comforted and even challenged.

Giving honor is something the Bible talks a lot about. I guess, when we honor those God has placed in our lives, those who love freely and inspire many, we also honor the One who made them. Thank you God for my mom!

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honor your father and mother—which is the first commandment with a promise— ‘so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.’” (Ephesians 6:1-3 NIV)
