I would like to take a moment to honor my loving mother Cora Ignacio. She is one who exemplifies the excellence and character of a Proverbs 31 and Titus 2 woman. My mother played a huge role in my conversion to the Christian faith. During an extremely rebellious stage in my early high school years, much of which consisted of blatant disrespect towards my mother, she consistently showed me patience and kindness which in turn led me to repentance not merely in the area of disrespect but of my life in general.
My mom has a gentle speech about her, is unusually humorous with her contagious laugh, an excellent listener, unbelievable patient, humble, a lover of scripture, a hard worker, and a servant to all. Much of these qualities I see in Jessica my fiancee. If fact apart from the Bible I would venture to say that much of what I know a woman of God to be and how I knew Jessica was the one who I wanted to spend the rest of my life with can be attributed to the character and qualities of my mom.
Happy Mother’s Day mom! I hope today is extra special for you! I love you!
