What do you think of, when you think of your Mom? I think of biscuits, canning, gardening, and someone who always loved my dad, my brother, my sister and me. My mom taught me many things, but the lessons I learned from her were not as important as the love I received from her. A mother’s love is one of the most important powers in the development of a person’s character. I have been the beneficiary of a wonderful mother who deserved my love and respect, but I have seen people with terrible mothers who still loved and respected them. What is so sad is people with terrible Moms have their expectation and self-esteem lowered to a point that it makes it difficult to rise above their raising. There are times in my life that I have seen people outperform their raising but that seems to be an exception to the norm. 
So today as we celebrate Mother’s Day, join me in honoring those moms that work so hard at being the best, and remembering those who have passed that impacted us in such a remarkable way. To all the Mothers of Tom’s Creek, thank you for your tireless work and devotion of raising a generation of world changers for Christ. As has been said "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Is the Hand That Rules the World" Our world will be shaped by the way you raise your kids. Keep up the good work and remember the greatest calling on your life is that of a Mother and Wife. What you bring home is not as important as the work that is done in the home and sent out into the world. May God Bless You as you serve Him in this honorable and high calling. Rev. Wayne Marcus
