Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day and I feel blessed. A little sunburned too, but blessed!! I never like to toot my own horn, and I am not doing that now, but it leads up to what I am posting about.

I am a mother to 3 children ages 6,4,16 months, and i go to church alone. Just me and the kids. We live 45 minutes from our church home, and it's tough. The gas prices eat my pocket book alive!! Getting all 4 of us ready for Sunday morning worship in one hours time is killer!! (I should get up earlier!!)

But the point I am trying to make is, I am loved. I am blessed!

The people at my church are so wonderful to me. There are times that I feel all alone in this struggle, that no one cares and no one helps me out. I am one of two moms at my church with a small one, and the other mom is new. Just started coming about 2 months ago. The rest have kids the age of my oldest and older, or they are elders.

There is no nursery worker, no class for the little guys to go to. Me. Just me. Being that church is so far away, I go to the one service. And 9 times out of ten, I am in the nursery with my guy and the new babe.

I am not complaining. Well, maybe just a little bit ;-)
But seriously, I know that in my heart...this too shall pass. I won't be stuck in the nursery forever. I will get to be with the other day.

But again, I am loved and blessed.

Today for Mother's Day, I got tons of hugs and lots of love. I got cards, and articles about mothering from prayer warriors, encouraging notes to keep it up, and best of all.....I felt the very presence of GOD!!

I know this road is tough, I know this life isn't easy for me. But I hold on to the hope that my faithfulness will win the one I love. That he will see how GOOD the Lord is and want to RE-taste Him for himself.

As a mother, it is my duty to keep my kids on the right path to righteousness.
I hope this is an encouragement to any other mothers out there who may be in a similar situation. Keep pressing toward the mark, run the good race, and be faithful to the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Your reward will be worth all the trials and tribulations you will face first!!

In JESUS will make it!!
