Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish all the wonderful Moms out there a Happy Mother's Day, especially the Angel Moms. If you know a mother who lost a child, please say a prayer that God will grant them peace and strength, if not today, then in time. Though many are blessed with other children and family, the loss of a child leaves a hole in the heart that can't be filled. It doesn't matter how good anything (or everything) else is, thoughts this day can't help but drift to what could have been, what should have been, and what will never be.
It's Mother's Day today.
Yes, it came again.
Once more this holiday,
Wasn't what it should have been.

Certainly we're blessed,
Of that there is no doubt.
But for all we have today,
So much we did without.

I'll never know just why
Things have to be this way.
They're just the way they are.
With that I have to be okay.

I've given up on changing things,
Though I tried so hard, so long.
It's time to accept the fact,
Sometimes things just stay wrong.

It's an imperfect world.
This I always knew.
I just never fathomed
How cold the cold winds blew.

But I'll keep moving forward,
Righting what I can.
But I have to leave behind me
The stubborn wrongs that stand.

Yes, it's Mother's Day again.
With blessings all around.
But I just can't help but notice
What should be that can't be found.
So say a prayer for the Angel Mom's you know, or even those you don't. They need it today.

If you don't know Jesus as your personal savior, if you're missing the faith, hope, and love written about here, if you want the peace that we as Christians have in our lives, please visit our Got Jesus? page for step-by-step instructions on how to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.
