I hope that today's quote by "Honest Abe" will serve as a rich blessing to you! May we each be as wise as Abe's mom. May we pray both in quiet and aloud for our children. For we know that unless the Lord builds the house all of our best efforts are in vain.
"I remember my mother's prayers
and they have always followed me.
They have clung to me all my life."
