"An excellent wife, who can find?
For her worth is far above jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands in delight.
She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.
She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.
She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.
She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
'Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all.'
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD,
she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates."
Proverbs 31:10 -31(NAS95)

heart of comfort, happiness, and being.
I may sometimes forget the words
but I always remember the tune."

and doth not bless their mother."
"A mother's love is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
it never fails or falters,
even though the heart is breaking."
A Mother's love, a Mother's care,
A Mother's sigh, a Mother's prayer,
A Mother's work, and a Mother's day,
Leaves little time for any play.
A godly Mother with godly love,
Is our treasure from God above,
A godly Mother with godly care,
Has God's help when she sighs a prayer.
[Calvin. M. Lake]

in their character the subtle
impressions of our marriage and home.
We are determining the quality of future marriages
by strengthening the quality of our own."
[J. Allan Peterson)]
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
[George Cooper - Only One Mother.]
"Parental permissiveness is the breeding
ground for juvenile delinquency.
Parents unwilling to exercise self-disciple
find it difficult to discipline their children
and when they do,
their children do not respect them.
This lack of self-discipline is the breeding ground
for all activities, and more,
to be found under the umbrella of juvenile delinquency."
"When the shell you live in has taken on the savor of your love
...then your house is a home."
[Scott Russell Sanders]
"Andrew, if I should not see you again, I wish you to remember and treasure up
I have already said to you. In this world you will have to make your own way.
To do that you must have friends.
You can make friends by being honest and you can keep them by being steadfast.
You must keep in mind that friends worth having will, in the long run,
expect as much from you as they give to you. To forget an obligation
or be ungrateful for a kindness is a base crime, not merely a fault or a sin, but an actual crime.
Men guilty of it sooner or later must suffer the penalty.
In personal conduct be always polite but never obsequious.
None will respect you more than you respect yourself.
Avoid quarrels as long as you can without yielding to imposition.
But sustain your manhood always.
Never bring a suit in law for assault and battery or for defamation.
The law affords no remedy for such outrages that can satisfy the feelings of a true man.
Never wound the feelings of others. Never brook wanton outrage upon your own feelings.
If you ever have to vindicate your feelings or defend your honor, do it calmly.
If angry at first, wait till your wrath cools before you proceed."
[Last Words to Her Fourteen-Year-Old Son
by Elizabeth Hutchinson Jackson, Mother of Andrew Jackson]

If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with fear, he learns to be apprehensive.
If a child lives with jealousy, he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to be appreciative.
If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with recognition, he learns it is good to have a goal.
If a child lives with honesty, he learns what truth is.
If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
he learns to have faith in himself and those about him.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship,
he learns to find love in the world."
"My son, keep your father's command,
And do not forsake the law of your mother."
[Proverbs 6:20 NKJV]
"A hush of silence sweeps over us as we breathe the word 'mother'.
Christianity exalts motherhood as no other religion in the history of the world.
In His incarnation our Lord entered our humanity through the portals of a woman's life
and thus in a special sense sanctified motherhood.
To be a mother is to hold the reins of a nation.
A mother's hand is mightier than a king's scepter.
This being true, every mother is called to utmost consideration of her high office."

is a son who causes shame and brings reproach."

"Blessed is the Mother...
Who can hold onto her children while letting them go;
Who puts a tranquil home ahead of an immaculate house;
Who knows a kind act will be remembered longer than an easy word;
Who really believes that prayer changes things;
Whose faith in the future sweetens the present;
Whose Bible never needs dusting; and
Whose sense of humor is alive and well."
