The Best Gift You Can Give

I face one of the year’s hardest problems every Mother’s Day. You don’t have to know me long to know I adore my parents, that my mom is still my bestest friend I hold hands and skip along with.

I love my mama so much I have no idea what to get her for Mother’s Day. To make matters worse, her birthday is right around May’s corner, June 20. A few ideas are coming to a boil on my mind’s stove, but nothing as fantastic as she deserves.

When a birthday of a close friend or birthday comes around, you may be like me, totally clueless what to offer them. “It’s the thought that counts” helps, but what if it were the prayer that counted?

Hence forth, I’m making sure no birthday or honoring day passes under my radar where I don’t bow my head for twenty seconds and say over a prayer over that person’s life. There is power in prayer.


Aside from prayer love, what’s the best gift you’ve ever received or given?


And Happy Mother’s Day to all you great moms reading my blog, especially my own. I love you, Mama! Praying for you always.

For Him,

Sarah Elisabeth

  1. Sarah! This is absolutely precious! It is the intagible ways we give- tribute, honor, love, sacrifice, wrapped up with prayer that God will cover that loved one’s life with His glory and purposes! Give your momma a hug and tell her I think she raised a wonderful daughter! <3
