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 perfect.....as 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.

Let's talk about adoption

Adoption is the method God chose to bring us (strangers) into His family as His own.... When we entered into the adoption process it was a complete mystery to me.  Would I be able to take this baby and love him as my own?  When a woman births her own child, most of the time, she also gives birth to a new deeper love within herself to nurture the baby.  But, how would I "feel" about someone else's child?  God, through many trials and tears brought Isaac into my life at a moment of great transition.  He had been working on me!  Reshaping me!  Most of the time when we view ourselves, we see a pretty okay human being.   Giving ourselves a whole lot of our attention. God had to bring me to a place of seeing the deep needs of those around me and off my own perceived need.  When Isaac was born, my husband was on a mission trip.  We had not been in Michigan very long, so I didn't know Detroit well at all.  God had taught me enough about the roads system that I

together forever.....remember love

    There is an unwritten rule in our family that say's "we will be there for each other....no matter what". Though time or space or difference of opinion may separate us, the love picks up right where we left off when we are together. That's how we as Christians should be with each other.  You know sometimes, we won't see eye to eye, sometimes one or both of us will be grumpy.........but we are bound in love as the family of the Most High God.......(if you don't feel this way......why not?) We might try to walk away from the "family" but truth is we are still family!!!!!! The Holy Spirit of God lives in all our hearts as Jesus Christ believers.....Christians. Nothing will ever separate us from the love of our Father, and nothing should be big enough to separate us as believers either.  It just shouldn't be......we all have some pretty big things God has had to forgive us  and we've all had some pretty big things done to us th
