Mother's Day


we read hannah's story today
hopeless hannah prayed for a child
a child she promised to return to God
and my heart ached for my children
and i pray for them
and i pray that they love the Lord
and i pray that I can give them to Him

seven years ago i sat in a pew
hopeless
unwed and pregant
scared
and Jesus spoke to my heart
and i gave myself and my unborn child to Him
and a burden was lifted

this son
this sweet son of mine
made me a mommy
he taught me love and laughter
sacrifice and the sweetness of life
i watch him grow in awe
and love him more than i ever thought possible

this year was my first mother's day with a daughter
my precious little girl
who only wanted me to hold her
cried when others looked her way
buried her head in my arms and closed her eyes
and tears ran down my face
God has entrusted me with one of His own

And she made a vow, saying, “Lord Almighty , if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.” 1 Samuel 1:11

Happy Mother's Day

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
