True mother love

I Caught sight of my grown-up son mowing the lawn in response to a request. He wasn't home much anymore and soon would be going far away again for quite some time. I was filled with a deep love for this young man. You might call it the best of mother love.

But I've learned to see from a spiritual perspective even the best in human life. As I stood there thinking about him, I pondered the God-given qualities he so clearly expressed right then. There was a strong sense of integrity, of goodness, of decency. Much intelligence was expressed, much innocence, an expectancy of good. I was aware of his true nature as God's child.
