A Mom is a Comedienne



A mom is a comedienne because she is one of the primary source of happiness in a child's life. 

The resounding call of your days is to stir up joyful moments and then to splash liberally in those experiences with your children. 

Teach your children that it really is more fun to serve the Lord rather than to be in bondage to the lies of the culture!

Celebrate every day with your children as a rare and precious gift that is worth more than corporate promotions, stocks and bonuses and career prestige. 

Sing silly and sweet songs with your children because you can never have too much music in your home!

Tell jokes to your children and teach your children that life is more abundant when there is something to be happy and laugh about!

School is hard and kids are mean. Life isn't always fair, but moms can always deliver the rich gift of genuine joy!

Make cookies with your children on an ordinary afternoon. Play with play dough and don't get frustrated because they have made a mess.

Play dress-up with your children and travel to make believe places together. 

Make green mashed potatoes on St. Patrick's Day

On April Fool's Day serve hamburgers for breakfast and pancakes for supper

Basically, teach your children to celebrate … to laugh … and to sing! 

One of bible teacher Carol McLeod's goals as a mother was to ensure that her home was the happiest home on the street.  She definitely wasn't the coolest mom, or the youngest mom, or the skinniest mom, or the richest mom, but she made sure that her home was a place of unreserved joy, laughter and music!

"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." - Proverbs 17:22

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
