I invite you to read this beautiful Mother’s Day “month” message from Bernadine, for Women Walking with Jesus. Grab a tissue!
By Bernadine McIntosh
Someone had hurt me. Broken a promise made to me with no apology and no explanation. I was devastated, so I did what I always did when I was hurting. I ran to the safe place called Mommy, laid my head on her shoulder and cried out my hurt.
Proverbs 31:26 (NKJV) She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
There is so much more to being a Mother then giving birth. A Mother loves unconditionally, nurtures, edifies, leads, guides, prays, nurturers, disciplines, respects and adores her children. A Mother apologizes for her own actions and forgives that of her children easily. Her love doesn’t keep a record of wrong doing. She sacrifices without complaint to ensure that her kids are fed, clothed and loved on. A Mother realizes that her children are gifts from God not her own property. A Mother understands that it’s a privilege to be called Mother. She is reverential to God and desires to parent her children in a manner that pleases Him and when she fails, she is quick to own her own behavior, words and actions and to ask God to forgive her and to help her in the care of her children.
