A Mother’s Day Bouquet

The word mother is defined as being a woman who has borne a child. However, I want to expand the meaning of this precious word to include more females than we might tend to think. A woman can become a mother through the adoption of children as well as through natural childbirth. A woman can be a spiritual mother as well as a biological mother. All of these ladies deserve special honor and recognition this coming Sunday as we celebrate Mother’s Day.

Flowers are a common gift given to honor mothers. Today I want to present a bouquet of floral images and meaningful scriptures to all mothers. Imagine each verse a flower hand-picked to be a blossom in your bouquet.
