Mother’s Day is coming soon! This is a day to celebrate mothers and all they do. Maybe their kids will draw them a picture and their spouses will dote on them for the day. But what about the women who have unseen children? Maybe they lost a child to miscarriage, death after birth, or perhaps they put their child’s needs before their wants and chose adoption. Should these women be celebrated on Mother’s Day? Of course!
The loss of a child does not take away a mother’s love nor does it take away the motherly heart that God placed in her. Mothers are unique, powerful, and sacrifice so much in the name of children – and this should be praised and celebrated. These women who have lost children are still mothers and deserve to be honored. Acknowledging them as mothers means you acknowledge their children as well.
I encourage you to celebrate the mommas in your life. Whether they carried a child for nine months or carry the memories of a child in their heart – let’s rejoice in mothers everywhere!
And mothers, the love you have in your heart for your children is admirable and beautiful. You are truly precious.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 – “Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.”
