Mother's Day 2009

"Strength and honour are her clothing....She looketh well to the ways of her household....Her children arise up, and call her blessed. Proverbs 31:25,27,28.

These verses from the book of Proverbs are some of my favorites. I remember them being stitched onto a beautiful pink pillow that some ladies made for my own mother when I was little. I remember loving these verses so much. Because I knew they were so true about my mom. Almost as if they had been written about her.......

So many years later, as a mom myself, these Proverbs have an even deeper meaning to me. A goal...a desire....a mission. That of which I hope to become. Someday.

And on to the day. My 3rd Mother's Day. It was the perfect day! We enjoyed a wonderful sermon at church, had a nice lunch, and I got to shopping ALL BY MYSELF for a few hours. I took A LOT of pictures. Oh the shock and awe you must be experiencing that I would take A LOT of pictures. Went to the park for a picnic with my brother and his family. Ended the day with my husband doing the dishes for me! Now that's how I spell PERFECT!!I am so thrilled about this picture as it's rare for us to get a family picture since I'm always behind the camera.

And I am really thinking this one should go in a frame.

And snack time is so much fun, a mom just HAS to take a picture.

Me and my little womb-dweller.

My good-lookin', hard-workin' husband tackling a little home improvement project. It was also one of my favorite pics from the day. For obvious reasons.

And my favorite quote today came from my husband. He said:

"Honey, today it's your world and I just live in it".

What beauty and value there is in the Proverb verses about what a mother should be. To see and live in the reality GOD has placed us and then live for Him is THE WAY He gave us to HONOR and GLORIFY HIM. Shannon Joy you are a good mother and role model. You bring the JOY of JESUS CHRIST to your family and to all. What a joy to us. Your mom and dad knew why they gave you that name. A great family picture and mother and son picture we hold dear to our hearts.
