Post of the Week from these parts here
So if we’re being gut honest here? We don’t really want the cards or the flowers this weekend…
they’re giving everyone a reason to smile every time a baby cries #MothersDay
grin: texts from mom #MothersDay
… honestly, sometimes moms fall short. And even that can kinda be made into the most beautiful thing of all:
Kept going back to this: When Moms Fall Short: The Club of the Velveteen Moms
Because He lives – I can face tomorrow…
just like ma #MothersDay
the special bond between a mother and child #MothersDay
Thank you moms for being there in every normal, mundane moment. Happy Mother’s Day
Spirit of the Living God
So… could someone just wrap up … a bit of Grace for us today?
If we’re being honest? What every mother wants, her most unspoken need — is a truckload of Grace.
Grace that buries her fears that her faith wasn’t enough, and that her faults were too many.
Grace that washes her dirty wounds and wounds the devil’s lies.
Grace that says she doesn’t have to try to measure up to anyone else because Jesus came down — and He measures her as good enough, as worthy enough, as loved more than enough.
That is all … believe it today: You don’t have to be awesome and do everything. You simply have to believe that the One who is Awesome loves you through everything.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
Share Whatever Is Good.
