My Easiest Commandment
| Please excuse the
personal reference. Today is called Mother's Day, a day to honor our
Mothers. I still cling to the tradition of wearing either a red or white
flower on that day that designates your Mother to be living or dead. Mine
is dead so I will wear a white flower. But it reminds me of the
commandment, "Honor thy father and thy mother." That has been
the easiest commandment for me to obey because of the kind of parents they
I say "were" because they have both died, but in reality they still "are" because I can recall them and their guidance of me and every day my respect and love for them grows.
In addition, my beloved wife and I have four children. My children have the very best for a Mother. My daughter and three daughters-in-law are the kind of mothers God's book teaches them to be.
So this is another Mother's Day and I count my blessings.
