Quite a bit of time has passed since I blogged. The main cause for this is the app for WordPress does not work any longer on my phone. The majority of my writing happened on the app. I will continue to trouble shoot. Please know that you are not forgotten.
Secondly, Happy Mother’s Day. I hope this day is filled with joy. Whether you are biologically a mom, you’re a step/foster mom, or you care for children in other ways who are not related to you by birth, I pray that you feel seen, loved, and celebrated. I pray Mother’s Day is not the only occasion you are celebrated.
For some people, this day is a joyous occasion. They celebrate being mothers or having exceptional moms. For others, this day is full of sadness. They are missing their mothers, or their children, or maybe they have not been able to have children.
In our city outreach yesterday, I met a lady who lost all her children. All three of them died. Mother’s Day was not a happy occasion for her. Therefore, I include a message to those hurting that they are seen by God and not forgotten.
I leave you with this poem for mothers.
“A Mother’s Love”
A Mother’s love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may,
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away,
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
— Helen Steiner Rice
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15)
“I, the Lord, made you, and I will not forget you.” (Isaiah 44:21)
I will write to you later this week regarding what’s new and upcoming!
Have a great start to the week.
