Oh Lord, I pray that You will be with and keep our mother/s and our wife in Your beloved arms. They are so dear to me and I know that You think of them in the same way. So often do I forget all they do for me and my children and then it dons on me come mother’s day. This doesn’t have to happen but often does, of which I regret. I do love my dear mother’s and my wife, although my blood mother has passed away this year. Her spirit is no longer with us, but I know that she is in a better place. Lord, thank You for allowing her to raise me to know You, just as You allowed my stepmother to do the same. I am blessed to have both of them in my life for all these forty-some years. My wife is also a blessing. Thank You for bringing her into my life those fifteen years ago. Time has passed so quickly, but I know that You have brought us together and that is why we have stuck around all this time. Lord, help me and my wife learn to love each other in a new way. Help her know that she is loved by me and You today and the rest of my life. I love You, dear Lord. Amen.
