"Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God."

— Titus 2:3-5

Thank you for loving me again, even in my worst moments.
Thank you for taking me out shopping and to Starbucks.
Thank you for your beautiful example of what it means to be a loving wife. 
Thank you for talking with me about book characters as if they were living and breathing. Thank you for not thinking I am insane in those moments. ;)
Thank you for driving me to dance so many hours a week and never complaining.
Thank you for always encouraging me in my writing.
Thank you for being understanding when I have a hard day and things don't seem to be going "right."

Thank you for being an example of undying faith.

I love you, Momma. Happy Mother's Day!

And Lord, thank you for all the wonderful older women who are like the women of Titus 2. Thank you for their godly examples to those of us who are not yet fully grown. Thank you for blessing us by putting them in our lives. May we never take them for granted.

"Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate." 

— Proverbs 31:28-31
