I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. ~~Psalm 119:11
What are we as mothers 'hiding up' in our precious children's hearts?
Each and every day we have choices as to how we will influence the lives of our little ones...
Seeing as our time with them is relatively short before they are 'sent off' into adulthood, I am reminded of the imperative instruction to train them up in the way they should go...
...the awesomeness of this vocation entitled: Motherhood.
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Does anyone else feel the sheer magnitude of such a task??
Does anyone else feel overwhelmingly humbled...AND honoured to be selected for such a high calling??
I am reminded that these precious lives are only entrusted to us for such a short season...
To be loved...to be valued. To teach...to mold. To assist....to nourish.
To be carried in our hearts always....
The Prayer for a Mother:
Thank you dear Lord for the gift of motherhood.
This is such a blessed and dignified vocation.
Lord, we often forget just how much you trust us,
by giving one of your precious children into our care.
Please help us always to appreciate the importance of being a mother.
