Thankyou Mum. You carried me, bore me, fed me, taught me, laughed with me, supported me, loved me, disciplined me, hugged me, and so much more. You taught me and showed me the love of Jesus Christ and the security, joy and hope to be found in him alone. You forsook your own desires and needs in order to meet mine just as Christ did at the cross of calvary. Thankyou.
Mothers Day is a wonderful day to celebrate and be thankful for our mums. But it can also be a difficult day.
This Mother’s Day may come as yet another reminder that you don’t have something you desire. Another year of miscarriages, infertility, or even waiting for a child through the adoption process. Whatever the unfulfilled desire, it tugs at your heart and plagues your mind.
I pray that all of us, mother or otherwise, would know the deep love and grace of Christ and that we’d have the strength to live each day for him. Through the struggles and exhaustion of parenthood, or the grief of childlessness, let’s support and love one another as the family of God.
