The Love that mothers
As I walked through the entrance of a favorite fabric store my eyes fell on a large, colorful display of Mother’s Day cards. I just stood there motionless, glancing around for help, as a feeling of great sadness washed over me. My beloved mom and dear friend had passed on last year, and this would be my first Mother’s Day without her.
Yet I realized at that moment that I had a choice besides dissolving into tears: I could think about how grateful I was for the incredible ways that Mom expressed our Father-Mother God. I began to feel the “love of Christ, which passeth knowledge” (Ephesians 3:19) filling my heart, and was able to continue my errands with a lighter step.
