God in a Mom

Posted by Tami Wallace on May 26, 2017 @ 11:35 PM

I recently attended the home going celebration of the mother of a dear friend of mine.  (I know this may seem strange but I really like going to funerals.  It's a time of honoring the one who has moved to Heaven and it becomes a time that I reflect on my own life.)

Anyway, my friend's son spoke quite eloquently of his relationship with his grandmother, recounting all the ways she had made him feel loved, and ended with this statement, "I saw God in my grandmother."  I cannot escape that thought ... Do my children see God when they look at me?

For me it comes down to this ... that I love my children unconditionally.  Not that I do everything perfectly.  Not that I approve of everything they do.  Not that I don't correct when needed.  But that I love them ... no matter what ... in every season ... in every situation ... regardless of circumstances ... they know that they are unconditionally loved by me.  (Because isn't that how we are loved by our Heavenly Father?)

So it's become my prayer, that when it's all said and done, my children will be able to say, "We saw God in our mom."

"Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant.  It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured.  It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail].  Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].  Love never fails [it never fades nor ends].
