How does the dictionary define the word, MOTHER?
In serving thousands of families in the past twenty years, the thought and emotions evoked of Mother's Day can vary based on your particular life experiences and encounters.
It can bring joyful childhood memories and warm thoughts of raising your own children. It can be filled with gut-wrenching sorrow over the loss of natural children, infertility or broken relationships with adult children. It can also be a time to reflect on the countless lives you have impacted as a "spiritual/ mentor" mom to others.
Regardless of the "mother" scenario, we can be encouraged to know God thought highly enough of YOU to bring you to plant earth through the womb of a woman!
"Before I made you in your mother's womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5 NCV
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. " Psalm 139:13,14 NIV
No matter if your mom was "Florence Henderson's -Mrs. Brady" or "the Bates Motel" baaaad mom---[the good news is God is willing and able to heal the deepest of our childhood wounds, so we are free to live, love ourselves and others].
Yet, the bigger realization of recognizing Mother's Day...is to CELEBRATE the life you are given...ask God to reveal to you the SPECIAL WORK He has foreordained for your life to fulfill while here on the earth.
It causes one to become...humbly GRATEFUL.
Blessings upon both the natural AND spiritual mothers of our generation.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!💐💕💐💕
