Happy Mother's Day: My Heritage of Faith
HERITAGE OF FAITH
In Memory of Dorotha Viola Smith Houston 1917-2002
In Memory of Doris Ruthelle Gartman Moseley Bock 1919-2007
In Honor of Donna Mae Houston Moseley b. 1944
How blessed I am
What a heritage of faith
Women who pray fervently
Consistently portraying a life of grace
Always encouraging, affirming, interceding, uplifting
Full of gentle strength and always believing
Beside their men and yet women of independent fervor
Raising their children to rely on their Savior
How blessed I am to know them, dear Father
And even more so, to be loved by and to love them
Grandma, Gram, Mom, oh how I praise You!
To me they're precious, and to You, priceless gems.
May I continue in their pathway
May I be a woman of honor, of prayer and of grace
May I pass on to this next generation
This amazing heritage of faith.
"Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also, and he praises her...Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised."--Proverbs 31:26-30, NIV
