Click above to listen to More Precious from the album Still Waters. I wrote this love song for my wife in 2002. She is an amazing wife and mother, two things which are precious, and priceless. Mother’s Day expanded my thinking to allow this love song to be for moms as well, so feel free to share this special Mother’s Day blog post with streaming music above, and special video below.
Have you thought of your wife or mother as “more precious than jewels?” An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. Proverbs 31:10 (ESV)
I am thankful to still have my mom in my life. She taught me a lot of things that have traveled the years with me: share kindness, give encouragement, enjoy creativity, have fun, honor and respect others, laugh out loud, cry when you need to, bake blackberry cobbler like this (with the family recipe), love and trust God in life. These are just a few. She has also loved me, prayed for me, believed in me, and encouraged me. I am thankful and will always remember her caring, her character, and many special memories we share. All of these things are “more precious than jewels” (and rise above past disagreements or arguments).
Below is a special love song music video called Pure Fountain. If you are a mom, take in the music and text as a love song from God to you. His heart is filled with love, grace, and forgiveness toward you as a mother and in your life. If you want to say “thank you” or “I love you” to your mom, consider sharing this video link with her as an expression of your appreciation.
What is one special thing you can say or do to let your wife know, or your mom know, she is precious and priceless?
