From the message from pastor John MacAurthur In Grace to You,
Caldwell went on to say, "The pride of America is its mothers...."
I remembered the stories that I heard about WWII and the Korean War.
WWII and the Korean War are forgotten stories for younger generations, or are irrelevant to them. I did not live in those times, but I have heard plenty stories of the role Christians played during war. I heard stories such as those of women who gathered together in churches to pray for the solders. Only if we can comprehend what America means to other countries, we might live differently.
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
"When God allowed my sorrow and pain to bring me to the cross, I quietly knelt in his presence. I could not ask the reason for my sorrow and suffering. There were no words before him. I met God who said that he loves me even to death. Heaven is closer to me now than ever before. My son's death connected me with the reality of death and sin, and led me closer to my only hope, Jesus Christ. Now, I have hope, not a wish, that I am forgiven and will see Jesus and my son some day at a beautiful place where there is no more pain, no more tears and no more fear."
'Hope' is not a wish, but a reality of the future, for which I am waiting with full of anticipation.
