Mothers Day


                                                                       Mothers Day

Mothers day, just the mention of it makes us reflect on and reassess our lives.   So what does a real life, good Mother look like.

I believe God's vision for Mothers is to love....  Agape Love.  Life giving love that is born from a heart that gives.  She puts her children and others at a high priority. 
It doesn't mean she's perfect.  If that were the criteria there would be no examples.  Some people were given  Mothers who had or have this kind of love.  A Mother who waits until everyone else has a full plate before she eats, a Mother who does everything she knows to do to bring us a good life. 
As I reflect,  my Mother was far from a matter of fact, I didn't really feel love from her until after my Father died and our first son was born.  But listen, I also realize she gave everything she had. 
She had struggled with knowing love and  feeling loved herself.  When I recognized my Mother was not just a Mother but a human who had tried to do what she could, my love for her as a person grew deep.  She wasn't perfect but she gave what she had!
What that looks like is different for each one of us.  

God gives us examples in scripture of this. Sarah, Naomi, Mary.....

I want my life to be characterized by this.....Mark 14:8.......She hath done what she could! 
Ladies, God's plan for us is not to be this perfect picture of "Mother", but to love.  Love God with all our might and let it pour out over our children, our husband, and anyone else that might come close.  Life giving, inspiring, honest, love.   

Happy Mothers Day,                                Happy Feet....heehee
love Jackie

  2. Many years later a Mother's Day observance on, may 13, 1877 happened in Albion, Michigan over the dispute related to the temperance motion which celebrates Juliet Calhoun Blakeley who stepped up to complete the sermon of the distraught Rev. Myron Daughterty and because of her activities, her sons paid tribute to her every year and urged others to honour their moms.
