Hey Friends, it is Odie coming to you from the wonderful state of California.
Today the Gospel Tent is going up in Atwater, California. We are super excited to have City Reach in Atwater. Revival begins tomorrow night, May 8th, and will go through Sunday night, May 15th. You are invited to join us for revival!
Pastor Jared Burris and the people of Amazing Grace Holiness Tabernacle have been working hard to spread the word about revival. Many people have promised to come. We are praying and believing they will come and be changed through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Tomorrow is a day set aside to honor Mothers. I have been contemplating this post for a while. I wish I had eloquent words to express my love for my mother but alas words fail me.
I Googled mother and a list of definitions popped up. In the middle of the list was a verb definition and stood out to me.
- 1.bring up (a child) with care and affection."the art of mothering"
I am definitely not an English scholar but I do remember that a verb is an action word. And I was thinking being a mother is truly an action! My mother has turned being a mom into a verb. My mom is always in action. I think she has mastered the art of motherhood in an amazing fashion. She freely offers me care and affection with a smile. She is always going well beyond the call of duty to make sure I am well cared for.
My beautiful mother, Kelly Jo Boggs, is a person dedicated to her family. She spends her life doing everything she can for me and my Dad. She is not afraid of work. Mom has always jumped right in and did whatever needs doing to get a job completed.
I try to take time to thank my Mama regularly through words and special little gifts to show her my appreciation all throughout the year. I love it when I get a chance to spoil mom a little bit. Mom is always doing things for others. She pushes her needs to the back burner. My awesome Mom deserves the spotlight and some special attention. She is totally unselfish and I want to be more like her.
She is also a woman of God. I know when I need prayer for something really important she will pray for me. She truly believes when we pray that things will be accomplished. Mom puts faith into action. And she is always been my encourager.

Mom, I love you so much! I truly do not know what I would do without you in my life. Thank you for being a wonderful example to me. I want to be a Godly woman like you. And if God ever blesses me with children of my own I pray to be a mother like you have been to me. Thank you for all that you do for me! I am thankful that you have taught me to rely on God. You have also let me see we are all human and make mistakes but we do not wallow in tough times. We get up and do something differently.
I want to wish my Mom and every other Mother a Happy Mother's Day. You deserve to be celebrated for your awesomeness! Thank you for taking time to read today.
