Today is Mother's Day ~ 2015
Women are emotional people, but today our focus will be turned onto happy moments or recalling sad moments in life. Sometimes it is even a mixture of both happy and sad moments. Each person is different, each mom is different and each of us are different. We have choices to move into God's grace, mercy and live a life filled with hope, joy and love.
Each of us was birthed by a woman of God's choice. He is the creator of life and we might not like his choice, but God has planned your future out. He wants us to honor the woman who birthed us and the man as well. It does not always mean we will understand them or even respect them. But doing the right thing unto God is right.
Matthew 15:4-6 New International Version
4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ 5 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ 6 they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
The last couple of days, I have spoken about mom's and relationships. I know people who have no relationships with their mom or dad. Broken homes and days with titles that you just want to be over. The reminder of somethings is not worth the day with the title. It's sad in many lives, but it happens. If we could only see that each of us have a mom. Maybe that is a good memory for you or a nightmare for you. Either way, that person went through some hard days and good days to carry you. Not everyone in life is a mom with a big heart. That person is who they are and we must realize that God picked them to be your mom. It is becomes time to separate things that run through your mind.
I have friends who have the best moms ever. I love watching the examples of others as they travel this journey of life too. God speaks of giving us the desires of our hearts. He hears us, knows us and wants the best for us. This day with a title, let us give thanks for that one woman who gave birth to you. Now it's your turn to be the adult and live in fullness of God.
My heart goes out today to broken people. The moms who have lost a child and now in Heaven. The moms who never wanted the divorce but it happen. The moms who never see their child because of their choice or their kid adult choices. The foster moms who deal with broken little kids who wants their mom. Some kids who never knew their mom because she died to young. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. Kids hurt on this day too. It's not just the moms but the missing link in a child's life.
I remember my mom talking about her mom dying when she was 5 years old. She couldn't remember her face or her touch. Her cried as she told me the story. Then she got passed around to brothers and sisters homes and never felt like she had a real home. She didn't have a mom and her example of you was her sister. Which was great, but she still missed her mom. It brought tears to my eyes as I think of it today. Kids hurt on days with a title. While other kids are very blessed and have the hugs of their mom.
Let us share life today and send a smile out as we go outside today. We never know what people face. We don't even know the depth of our neighbors and what they face. I know that I have neighbors that experience the suddenly death of their son. It's was crazy hard and continues to be crazy hard. I have other friends who miss their child on this day and I would ask today for prayers for them as well.
NOW FOR YOU ~
You were birthed for purpose. Your example matters far more than you. Someone in life watches your attitude, your kindness and your example. Be that to many people who are not moms today but their example shines bright to children and adults. I am proud of those who don't let the pain consume them but learn a new normal and that takes time. Time is a tick away to a minute, a minute to minutes and the it goes going around the clock. Don't let this day go by without thanking God that he created you for a bigger purpose. YOUR LIFE MATTERS and YOU ARE IMPORTANT!
See the blessings in your life and the connection God made between you and me through this blog. I pray daily for the readers of my blog and your family/friends. Life is way to short to get stuck on what you don't have and a must to see what you do have. Only God can open the door and only you can choose to walk into freedom of new thoughts, new ways and new beginning.
I am thankful that God has taken my life from a ugly spot and brought me to my now of life. Have a wonderful day and I thank God for your life!
