What a wonderful day to celebrate.....Mother's the ladies who make the world go round. If it were not for a Mother, none of us would be here. So many years, I struggled with this holiday. Seemed like it was so hard to sit in church and not being a mother to a child on Earth- I was so empty inside. Seeing how I have 2 babies in heaven before I ever had one on Earth to hold in my arms.
I don't take my job as a mother lightly. It is important and each day I am blessed to be with my boys. I am so thankful for 2 healthy boys, I could never imagine my life without them!!
I do know how so many people can not see the Happiness in the holiday....whether their mother has passed away, they have lost a child too soon or they long to be a mother. My prayers are for you today. I have felt those emotions myself on this very same day. Seeing how I lost my first baby on May 10th....it often falls on Mother's day.
I was reading this book recently and ran across this great poem. I would like to share and dedicate to all the women who read this post. God has a special plan for everyone. All things are in God's timing and his Will...not ours. If we trust in him and fully rely on him to lead us....he will show us the way.
By Roy Lessin
A Woman once fretted over the usefulness of her life.
She feared she was wasting her potential being a devoted wife and mother.
She wondered if the time and energy she invested in her husband and children would make a difference. At times she got discouraged because so much of what she did seemed to go unnoticed and unappreciated.
"Is it worth it?" she often wondered.
"Is there something better that I could be doing with my time?"
It was during one of these small moments of questioning that she heard a still small voice of her heavenly Father speak to her heart.
"You are a wife and a mother because that is what I have called you to be. Much of what you do is hidden from the public eye. But I notice. Most of what you give is done without remuneration.
But I am your reward.
Your Husband cannot be the man I have called him to be without your support. Your influence upon him is greater than you think and more powerful than you will ever know, I bless him through your service and honor through your love.
Your Children are precious to Me. Even more precious than they are to you. I have entrusted them to your care to raise for Me.
What you invest in them is an offering for Me. You may never be in the public spotlight.
But your obedience shines as a bright light before Me.
Remember you are My servant.
Do all to Please Me."
I pray you all have a wonderful day!!
