Mother's Day Reminder: Sing your Song

It's been a long time coming...

Beautiful flowers and sweet sentiments.  The calls, cards, & messages; I'm grateful for them all.   But it's the sight of David holding Eva and listening as they interact.  Father with daughter; talking - as only he does - while combing her hair.  They are in their own little world.  No pretense.  Unaware.  Just loving on one another.  And for that moment, on my very 1st Mother's Day Weekend, I am reminded, how very blessed I am.  To be a MOM --  Finally -- Oh Yes!  And to know that I am a wife, loved by my husband:  That's rich.  But deeper still is my understanding more and more that we are "Children of God", adopted into His great family.  From my perspective, there is nothing greater.

For those women who have waited and continue to wait for their 1st Mother's Day, please know that I have been praying for you.    My hope is that you would sense God's peace and grace in your life in a very personal way.  Don't give up.  Your day is coming.

May this video by Third Day be an encouragement to each and everyone of us:  "Children of God, sing your song and rejoice, for the love that He has given us all...Children of God."

And to you, my sweet, sweet Eva Monet.  Momma loves you.

  1. What a beautiful post. I'd been thinking of you all week, wondering at how the day would hit you. Grateful for the fullness that you would no doubt be feeling. So happy for you. And that face? OY, that face. She is such a doll. Happy belated Mother's Day to you, my friend :)
