Happy Mother’s Day

I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and wonderful Mother’s Day. And since I’m also a lover of all things horrific, strange, or utterly unknown, here are “7 Things You Don’t Know About Mother’s Day’s Dark History.” (Sorry, but I couldn’t help myself.) 

 But seriously folks, make sure to express to your mother just how special she is to you—regardless of your past relational circumstances. Don’t let the day come to a close without wishing her a happy Mother’s Day, even if you have to convey the message via phone, text message, or social media. Unfortunately, my mother is no longer on this Earth, and I wasted so many chances to convey my feelings for her while she was alive. Please, don’t make that same horrendous mistake.

Here are a few thoughts regarding mothers, straight from God’s Words.

“She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness” (Proverbs 31:26, King James Version).

“As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem” (Isaiah 66:13, King James Version).

“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20, King James Version).

So, to every mother throughout this entire world, I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day. You’re an exceptional gift from God, worthy of love, respect, and admiration. Thank you for everything you do, because, without you, life would be unlivable.

God bless you!

P.S. Okay, before I forget to balance things out by catering to those who are not fans of the bizarre, here are “20 of the Most Beautiful Mother’s Day Quotes.”

Happy Easter

I would like to take this occasion to wish everyone a safe and cheerful Easter. May you spend the day with those you love and who love you. And don’t forget: God provided his Son as a sacrifice so that you (that means everyone!) have the opportunity for eternal life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16, King James Version).

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13, King James Version).

God bless you and your family.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re romantically involved, happily single, or looking for that special someone, I want to wish everybody a Happy Valentine’s Day sincerely.

If you are in a relationship, make sure to demonstrate to your lover how important they are. That doesn’t mean you have to spend copious amounts of money on overpriced candies, flowers, and jewelry. No, your love and attention are far more consequential to your partner than materiel possessions.

Conversely, if you are single—through choice or by misfortune—remember this: you don’t need external validation from someone else to prove your worthiness. Moreover, just because you are not in a romantic relationship doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Valentine’s Day with some of your friends. Here is a good article from Woman’s Day on that subject: “15 Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day With Friends.”

And, in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, here is a link to some light reading on the history of Valentine’s Day from Wikipedia.

Happy New Year

As you’re reading this post, the New Year is either already here or just around the corner. Either way, I cannot believe 2020 is upon us. Wow! As a child I would have thought this to be the epoch of Buck Rodgers or something.

Anyway, I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

Please, be safe, be happy, be kind. Take this opportunity to start the year with an improved outlook on life. And if you’re going to make some New Year’s resolutions, here are a couple of outstanding ideas: 1) Make a commitment to work harder and achieve more for yourself and your family. 2) Resolve to treat other people with love and respect—even if they do not reciprocate.

God bless you all!

Merry Christmas

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

May you spend quality time with those whom you love, and may your heart overflow with kindness towards everyone around you. Moreover, let the past remain in the past; don’t hold grudges or fan the flames of hostility this holiday season.

In the words of Jesus “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:34-35 KJV).
