“Mom, why are you crying?”
When we were children, nothing gave us greater fear than seeing our own mother afraid.
Moms aren’t afraid of anything! This Mother’s Day, I am thinking of a mom named Trisha. She had so much going on in her life, and when she found herself pregnant, the father of the child deserted her.
She already had a child, and now she was pregnant and alone. That is when she came to our center. I remember how afraid she was, how everything seemed like it would never be resolved. The thought of having this baby now was such a challenge for her.
However, after her ultrasound, she recognized her baby on the screen. She realized that she was being called upon by this unborn child. In the safety of her womb, the child waited - trustingly, quietly, for his mother.
It was then she became determined to see herself through her challenges and became the strong mother she was called upon to be. It was such a courageous decision, even though she still faced many hardships.
I would like you to watch this video. It’s Trisha, in a group discussion, telling a story of a time when the world seemed to be closing in, and where she found her strength.
I think on this when I see the women come through our centers, and it is my prayer that their hearts be opened to receiving the Beauty of God’s love through their child, both in and outside the womb, as Trisha’s was.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the courageous, strong, beautiful mothers out there.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who think they can’t make it, who feel alone, lost, or forgotten today.
Happy Mother’s day to the moms who think they don’t have what it takes, or are not confident in their ability to provide for their children, already growing, loving, and trusting inside them.
Happy Mother’s Day to the moms who have made the wrong choices, who feel judged, isolated, or distanced from their families.
Happy Mother’s Day, for all the moms who every day pour out their hearts and energy for their children.
Please share this with a mom who needs that extra push - who could use a word of encouragement, a testimony, a story to give them the strength to go on.
May God bless all of you and your mother's today, who said “Yes” to LIFE!
