First, happy Mother’s Day to every mom who knows love better than any other human can. We have been equipped in ways that are unique and, some have said, bring us closer to knowing our own Creator’s heart than we would have thought possible, for we have the most amazing part in the miracle of creating life, otherwise known only to God Himself!
Mother’s Day certainly celebrates all that mothers do, from the nurturing and protecting our babies in the earliest days of their lives until we go to our own reward, our job on earth complete. But we also celebrate all that mothers are and the incredible gift we have been given to share in the creation of new humans, in intimate partnership with God as He breathes life into the babies with whom we are entrusted to grow and raise for Him. There is no greater honor, no greater blessing, and no greater responsibility, and our incredible role in God’s own plan for humanity shows His vast perfect love and continuing plan for His creation…and our part in it.
“For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.” ~ Psalm 139:13-16
Happy Mother’s Day!
