"Some moments in motherhood are pure bliss. It's the big moments of joy when our child learns to walk or say, "I love you" for the first time. Then there are moments in motherhood that are pure agony or fear or regret or concern..."Listen to episode 140, "Mom's feel the deepest feelings." This is the first of FOUR SHORT EPISODES THIS WEEK, celebrating MOTHERHOOD this Mother's Day Week.
I can remember the first time that my first grandson told me he loved me or the time when he was leaving my house from visiting us for a week. That little three-year-old said with his stumbling little words, "I love you, Grandma. I will be back." Oh, my heart melted with joy.
Then there are moments in motherhood that are pure agony or fear or regret or concern.
We mothers are the humans who feel the deepest of feelings as we have these human extensions of ourselves that walk around independently from our body.
And yet, they are very much a part of us forever as they grow. We learn to somehow cope with the fact that this extension of us is also separate from us, their own person, their own soul, their own heart, their own mind.
It's in those moments of reality that I in prayer place, this part of me, my child, into the hands of Jesus, asking Him to be with my child, wherever they go:
- to see what I can't see,
- to hear what I can't hear,
- to guide,
- to whisper his love to their heart,
-to reveal truth to their mind.
I end today with one of the mom prayers that I have on my website. It's a graduation prayer. Now you can find all of them HERE on my website www.PracticallySpeakingMOM.com, which is set up as the six rooms of the intentional mom's home.
