The embrace of our Mother, divine Love
The Mother-love of God doesn’t leave us any more than the sun stops shining.
Few things on earth can compare to the pure and enduring nature of a mother’s love. She intuitively knows the needs of her child better than anyone else. Even after her children have “left the nest,” her hopes and prayers travel with them, never leaving them, since neither time nor space can turn back her devotion.
This may be how many of us characterize our own mothers. And yet for some, this depiction might seem idealistic. Perhaps our mother has passed on, and her love seems a distant memory. Or because of the unprecedented circumstances over the past year, we have been unable to be with our mother in a meaningful way. Others may regret not having the warm connection to their mother that some seem to have.
But no matter the circumstance or family situation, there is a higher, deeper love to which we can all turn for comfort, guidance, and, yes, healing: the divine love of God, our true Mother. This ever-present Love is embracing each of us right now.
