Tomorrow: Happy 9th Birthday, Jaybird!
He is such a happy boy! There is not a morning that goes by that I do not feel blessed to know this person. Motherhood has been, so far, for me, an opportunity to see God's Creation as something deeply beautiful. To our human eyes, it seems ever-changing. I suspect to our Creator, there is a profound constancy to life. When I am praying well, the tumult and irritations that are part of family life fade as I am able to see, day-to-day, the goodness of our Heavenly Father.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for creating me, for sending me such a Savior as You have sent us in your Son, our Lord -- and, thank you, Father for the gift of Motherhood, which has been, so far, my opportunity to learn from the Holy Spirit that human life is fleeting, yet, it is also mysteriously a timeless work of Your Divine Hands. Amen.
