Each year as Mother's Day rolls around, I am continuously reminded of the blessing of motherhood. Whether you are a mom, have a mom, know a mom, or have always longed to be a mom, it is undeniable how humanity has benefited, all because of a mother's love. Love that is colorblind. Love that is patient. Love that is selfless. Love that weeps. Love that can heal. Love that can move mountains. A mother's love knows no bounds!
I realize the privilege of motherhood. I understand the gift of being raised by a mother whose love continues to be selfless and endless (SHE gave ME a mother's day present....!) I married into a family that lavishes love upon all who enter their home. As I get ready to write my children my annual mother's day letter, I think about all of those who are motherless; children that have been left to fend for their own. Of course it is much easier to pretend this doesn’t exist. It does. In my neighborhood. City. Country. World. I know, it really is too much to wrap your mind around. As you celebrate a special mother this weekend, please consider praying for those who don't have a mother. Check out this amazing site and pray for its ministry. There is such power in prayer! http://www.asourown.org/
Happy Mother's day!
