Moms – you matter.
Despite what you may hear other people say, or what you may even say to yourselves, YOU MATTER.
To the stressed-out, worn-out mom who has neglected taking care of herself because there is just not enough time in the day, and taking care of your kids is more important than pampering yourself: THANK YOU!! You are making a difference!
To the mom who carries a responsibility of caring for a child with a disability: Tammy and I cannot express in words what we feel when we see you taking care of all of your child’s needs. We see only boundless love. And we see God.
To the woman who dreams of being a mom and whose heart is full of deep anguish on Mother’s Day, because you have not been able to have a child for years. We really do not know what you are going through as yet another pregnancy test shows negative… Tammy and I pray that the Lord will comfort you, as He comforted Hannah, Rebekah, Rachel, Sarah, and Elizabeth.
To the single mom who carries all of life’s burdens by herself and has no one to share them with: You have so much on your shoulders. As you face another battle and yet another trial, we pray that you will receive supernatural strength and wisdom from the Father, who gives to all who ask. We pray that our Father will fulfill all your needs and the needs of your children. We pray that you will be able to cast all your fears and anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (1st Peter 5:7)
To the mom who is going through the pain of losing a child: this day must be especially difficult for you, as you are surrounded by reminders everywhere you go… You may have lost your child in a miscarriage, before even experiencing your baby’s movements. You may have lost a young child and miss his or her hugs and hearing “I love you mom.” You may have lost a son or daughter who was already an adult… The loss is excruciatingly painful no matter how young or old your child was… We pray that you may be comforted by these words: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
From Tammy and me – Thank You Moms for making a difference in this world- We Love YOU!
