Mother’s Day brings a mix of emotions. People who have lost their mother are faced with grieving on Mother’s Day. Some women anticipate the birth of their first child while step-moms may wonder what their role is. Some mothers carry the angst of children who have turned from God, or are overwhelmed with pain from the loss of a child, or burdened with regret due to abortion. And many people are able to rise up and rejoice they have known a mother, whether related by blood or by love, who has nurtured, loved, and disciplined them. Regardless what you face this Mother’s Day, we pray more….
