When I think about Mother’s Day throughout my lifetime, there are many words that come to mind: beautiful, sweet, difficult, painful, tearful, fun, frustrating, depressing, challenging, overwhelming, awesome, lovely, lonely. Not necessarily in that order.
I see you, Sweet One.
I know you don't understand and you're confused. My desire is not to leave you that way, but to speak to your soul's deepest places and help you find contentment in Me.
- Love God
Friends that are waiting, hang in there. Persevere! Declare today, Mother’s Day, to be the day the Lord has made and give Him all the glory and praise. I know this is so hard and completely against what we want to do, but our Lord is the same as He was yesterday, the same as He is today, and the same as He promises to be forever.
And to my dear Mother friends, Let me urge you - please remember us!
Yes, we want to celebrate your beautiful children with you and the fact that you are a mom. We are overjoyed with you and sincerely love your kids. But that doesn’t take away the sting of today. We desire so deeply to be celebrating alongside of you and with you; but we can’t and it’s completely out of our control.
It's almost Mother's Day, again. Many will celebrate and rightly so. If anyone knows what a gift motherhood is, it's us. We long for mommyhood. Our stories look different, but our heartaches are all the dame. You're not alone. I'm thinking of you especially on this day. I've been there. As your emotions attempt to consume, let me set your mind on our Rugged Hope.
