A mother’s pleasant words are like honey, to the child’s tongue. This is why I wrote blessing notes to our daughters, beginning of the year. I am encouraging all mothers or any woman who is dealing with children to bless them/speak good of them. Speak those good things we wish for their lives. Ladies, we are nurturers. There is something in us women, which God has entrusted us with. Let’s not slacken. The kids need us. Even our men need us.
God blessed my husband and me with two daughters. The first one is 25 at this time of writing. She is a very responsible young woman. The second one is about 23 and is a hard worker.
Blessing with pleasant words
We love to speak and write positive statements. Biblical truth and words of encouragement to them. Picking one or two things they are good at and reinforce. For, words of power. It’s either we build or we destroy by words. If they are doing something contrary to what we expect, we tell them, they can do better. This has opened a way for the girls, to come to me for advice, especially when it’s girl issues. We have a relationship of trust, and we thank God for it. We are not perfect by any means. But are still learning.
Children need to hear their parents talk good about them, encourage them. That does well to their souls. And brings life to their beings and future. Who better to do that than the parent. In other words, it’s called blessing your children.
This one was for our first daughter.
Here we go:
