A LETTER TO MY DAUGHTERS ON MOTHER'S DAY

There is something I've wanted to say to you for a long time but never did because I didn't want to sound like I'm preaching so here goes. One of the most important things for us to remember is that : God doesn't love us because we are valuable. We are valuable because He loves us. I heard Bishop Sheen say that on T.V. once and I think it's one of my favorite mottos to live by. It sure has helped me to feel better about myself now and then when I was feeling down. Just sit back and think about those words: GOD ALMIGHTY LOVES ME. I HAVE GREAT WORTH BECAUSE THE KINGS OF KINGS FINDS ME WORTHY OF HIS LOVE. I AM NOT ANYTHING SPECIAL ON MY OWN, BUT I AM VERY SPECIAL BECAUSE HE LOVES ME. I AM NO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. THE THINGS I OWN OR THE MONEY I HAVE OR THE POSITION I HOLD IN SOCIETY DOES NOT MAKE ME SPECIAL; BUT I AM VERY SPECIAL BECAUSE OF WHO OWNS ME. I AM A CHILD OF THE KING, THE LORD OF ALL CREATION, And His Gentleness Makes Me Great. So what I'm trying to say here is this: Don't ever look down on yourself because of what someone else might think of you. Be happy with what God has given you and do your level best to pay Him back by what you do with His gift to you. Your life and everything else that is yours is His gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to Him. Don't ever forget that. It's your duty to God, Himself to be the very best YOU that you can be. Strive every day to do well. If you mess up, O.K. , tomorrow is another day, another chance to do better. But please don't short change yourself and don't short change God by being too lazy or too blase to do your best in all that is put before you. God loves you so much. Try to make Him proud. Love Always, Mom

What sound advise and a wonderful write to a daughter, as only a mother can advise. I love this and read it twice over to digest it, because I feel we all should reassess our relationship with our God. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

I remember Bishop Sheen quite well. He was very popular in Chicago. Had a weekly column in the newspaper here and a radio slot too, if I remember correctly. HMD, Judy!

Like anything else, faith is a choice. We will all find out one day if we made the correct choice. Wonderful letter, Judy. Happy Mother's Day:)

Thank you so much Daniel. If I have made the wrong choice I won't know anything about it because I will just be dead but if a non-believer has made the wrong choice that person for sure will know it because he/she won't be. oops! God Bless, JB
