I have been fortunate all my life to have wonderful godly women mentors in my life and I have taken them for granted. I hadn't any idea how lucky and fortunate I was growing up with my great-grandmother, two grandmothers, two aunts and a mother who all had strong Christian faith and values. Honestly, I can't remember a time not knowing the Lord...I feel I was born into God's family as I have been aware of His love my whole life because of these amazing women. Not just by word was I shown His love but by their deeds and acts of love, service and mercy.
It hasn't stopped there though...it seems I learn a new lesson from women who touch my life everyday...and it doesn't have to be an older women, as my daughter, daughter-in-law and future daughter-in -law have taught me real truths in the way they handle their joys, obstacles and disappointments. God is in our midst, if we would only see and listen.
And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
2 John 5-6
