Let us honor our mothers.

Every day must be a mother’s day.

Psalm 23:1–3 (NKJV) — 1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.

Second, learn to release all your anxiety to the Lord.
1 Peter 5:7 (GW) — 7 Turn all your anxiety over to God because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 (NIV) — 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 (NLT) — 7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Third, learn to rest.
Exodus 20:11 (NKJV) — 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Mark 6:31 (NIV) — 31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

Fourth, learn to pray
