This is a post from 5 years ago, but I am sharing it with you today instead of my regular post. It is as true today as it ever has been….. Blessings on you all…

I thank God for the privilege of being a mother. Mothering-“to look after kindly and protectively”. I gave birth to 4 children, but I have mothered many more than that. For those of you who have desired to ‘give birth’ but haven’t, it means that you can be a ‘mother’ without giving birth. God gives us opportunities to affect the lives of others. To pour into them the love, encouragement and godly influence of a loving mother. I thank God for the joys and sorrows that I have experienced as a mother—the joys are immeasurable, and the sorrows have helped to make me the person that I am today. Because I am able to share with others that which God has done for me:
“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to comfort them
which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith
we ourselves are comforted
of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Thank you Lord for my children, grandchildren and all those you have allowed me to love and care for. What a blessing!!
Amen and Amen!!!
