Before she died, a Mom said to her adult child; “Here is a watch that your grandfather gaveme. It is almost 200 years old, I want to give it to you but first go to the jewelry store and tell them that you want to sell it, and see how much they offer you.” He came back and said; “They offered $150.00 because it’s so old.” The Mom said; Now, Go to the pawn shop.”
He came back and said; “The pawn shop offered $10.00 because it looks so worn.” The Mom then asked the son to go to the museum and show them the watch. He went to the museum, came back, and said; “The curator offered $500,000.00 for this very rare piece to be included in their precious antique collections.”
The Mom said; “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you are not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value.”
Know your what you are worth and never doubt it.
Jeremiah 1:4–5 NKJV
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

your ministry affects your children, their children and generations after.
Mom Your mission started the day they were born, and it will never truly ends.
Fueled by a love so deep so pure that this kind of Love only God truly understands. Your their most fierce protector. Their greatest care giver.
When they hurt, you hurt. When they win you win. When they are competing, no one is cheering louder! No one the prouder. The depth of your giving has no end, You have poured every bit of you into them, And now you reluctantly turn them loose into the world, a new life to begin. As they step out they have your heart, your love, your courage, your kindness and generosity, but most importantly a Heart for our Heavenly Father that you placed within. Now they take that piece of you and Him and give it to the world they live in. Freely they have received now freely they will give. The world is an increasingly rich and beautiful place because God gave you them. We love and honor you Mom!

as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations” in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”
The 23rd Psalm Mom
My mom is my shepherd; I shall not want. She makes me lie down under cool, downy comforts. She watches me play beside still waters. She restores my soul.
She leads me in paths of respect, responsibility, and goodness, for I am her namesake! Yea, even though I walk past monsters in the dark, I will not be scared, because my mom is always near me. Her hands and her voice, they comfort me. Mama sets the table and cheerfully calls me to dinner even in front of big, mean bullies. She anoints my skinned knees and broken heart with kisses. She smiles and throws me a towel when my cup runneth over. Surely God’s peace, power, and mercy shall uphold me all the days of my life, for my Mother taught me to dwell in the house of God forever.

A Soul Winners Crown
Rev. Hagin was ministering in Rockwall, Texas, in 1950 and had an open vision in which Jesus spoke to him about being a soulwinner. Jesus was standing there, and I stood in His Presence. He was holding a crown in His hands. This crown was so extraordinarily beautiful that human language cannot begin to describe it.
Jesus told me, “This is a soulwinner’s crown. My people are so careless and indifferent. This crown is for every one of My children. I speak and say, ‘Go speak to this one or pray for that one,’ but My people are too busy. They put it off, and souls are lost because they will not obey
Jesus said that people selfishly say they are ready for Heaven. They talk about their mansions and the glories of Heaven while many around them live in darkness and hopelessness. Jesus said I should share my hope with them and invite them to come to Heaven with me.
