The Best Job in the World

This job’s a tough one, Lord,
but the perks are beyond compare.
Who else but a mother
knows the joy of satisfying
a human being’s every need?

Who else but a mother
sees love come alive a hundred ways,
from jelly-smeared kisses and
diminishing sobs
to crayoned valentines
and soggy, shared suckers?”

Thank you so much for this
priceless privilege,
this role so few get to know.
Inadequate as my training,
inept as I might be,
I know I have tenure for life.

Even so, I ask your assistance
in making sure I deserve it.
For a bad mother is the worst nightmare
a child can ever know,
and a good one
a dream come true
to curly up with for life.

–from A New Mother’s Prayers,
by Jayne Jaudon Ferrer

What Your Heart Needs When the Road Gets Rough….

i'm here with you

“When something difficult happens, it’s easy to wonder, “Where are you, God?” And His answer is always the same: “I’m with you.”

Sometimes He makes His presence known through the hands and feet of people in our lives.

Sometimes He quietly whispers to our hearts.

Sometimes He works through circumstances to let us know we’re not alone.”

The Promise of Hope

Below is an excerpt of a message of HOPE I received in my inbox and thought I would share.  Hope you enjoy.

Reminders of Hope in the Strangest Placeshope isnt a promise

“I remember every moment I almost gave up and didn’t.

I remember those days of eating just a muffin a day until that check surprised me.

I remember the searing pain that came when another person looked me in the eyes and said, “You’re not enough” and the joy that soothed me when I later read Psalm 139.

I remember that hope isn’t a feeling. It’s a promise from the giver of life. And the promise of hope was sealed and delivered with the blood of Jesus. That kind of promise is unbreakable.”

 

Read the rest of Angela’s article here, where she speaks about how hope thrived even when she doubted its existence.

“And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5 (NIV)

Life Begins Each Morning…

“Whether one is 20, 40, 60, or 80, whether one has succeeded, failed or just muddled along, Life begins each morning.  All past days are gone beyond revisiting.  All days that still may come are veiled in mystery.  Each new day is Life and life begins anew with it.  Each night of life is a wall between today and the past.  The greatest fact in life is this, that it is never too late to start again.  However, discouraging your days may have been, keep this thought burning brightly in your mind:  Life Begins Each Morning!”

– L. M. Hodges

 

life begins each morning

 

Isn’t this just great motivation to keep going one day at a time.  We’ve all been there, we’ve fallen down, by the time we’ve gotten back up, we are so far behind it gets discouraging.  But keep going, every day is a new day, every day is another opportunity for a Fresh Start.  Never give up.  Life Begins each Morning…

“Every day is an opportunity for a Fresh Start”
