Happy Mother's & UN-Mother's Day

To all of you moms out there who lovingly devote your lives to your children I pray you had a very blessed day designated to


Motherhood is a group I have been a proud member of for 32 years now.

It is the role of a lifetime for me.

I do not remember ever wanting to be anything else besides a mom when I was growing up.

While I thank God for the three precious blessings that God entrusted me with here on this earth, I know they are not mine, but they are His.

(I need reminded of this from time to time though, I will admit).

Each one of them are unique and incredible in their own right.

Each one was created wonderfully and beautifully by our awesome God.

Psalm 139 speaks of how God has created us just as He wants us to be,

He has given us specific talents and abilities that are there for His reasons.

I would love to introduce you to each one of my pride and joys and tell you all about Shelly, Sara and James and the fabulous qualities and traits they each possess.


I am feeling something else on my heart at the moment
(and............. I did not get permission to exploit them here! LOL!!!)

While I am thankful and feel beyond blessed to be a mom.

I am mindful of so many women who long to be able to be a part of that group

called "Motherhood".

It breaks my heart to see the pain of these barren women.

I KNOW that God has a plan for their lives, I also know that at times that seems so distant and elusive compared to the longing deep within their precious, loving hearts.

I do not know God's ways, nor can I understand why sometimes we cannot have every desire of our heart, especially when it is something we feel so led to.

I can only say that GOD LOVES YOU and


He knows your heart, because HE created it!!

He DOES have a plan for you!!!

Please be encouraged by God Himself on this day that your heart feels heavier than usual for the longing within you heart.

As I have been writing I have been thinking of the many other types of moms that are struggling with this day.

There are the grieving moms who have lost a child.

The moms who have children but cannot be with them,

for one reason or another.

The mothers whose children have grown up and moved on

leaving them feeling lonely and without a purpose.

There are also those of you whose moms have passed away

and you are missing them desperately today.

There are some of you who feel an emptiness on this day because you have never felt the love of a mother and you long to have that in your life and in your heart.

For all of you I pray healing and wholeness within you, within your heart.

I pray that you know this is but one day in your life,

it is no more valuable than any other day in God's eyes.

He wants you to know and feel His love and JOY,

He wants you to feel His PEACE!!!

Remember...He knows your heart, He created it

and He does have a plan and purpose for your life!

I am praying for ALL of you moms right now......

in the mighty name of Jesus!!!

  3. I thought you would enjoy this--my friend who has adopted three children posted this on her blog this week: "What matters most to me today is finding a way to honor our birth mothers this mother's day. They gave my children life, they give them love, they give them hope... they made me a mom. My heart is so full of gratitude for them. " Gratefully, she is enjoying the blessings of mother's day...but will never forget those who made it possible for her.
