This Mother’s Day, we walk with you. Mothering is not for the faint of heart and we have real warriors in our midst. We remember you.
This Mothers we are going to focus, not so much on moms, but on how we are all called to Love like Jesus.
When the Apostle Paul was helping the young church in Thessalonica he compared his work among them to that of a mother caring for her children with love. On Mother’s Day as we consider God’s love, there are similarities between the love of a mother and of God to help us Love Like Jesus.
