A Mother's Love

A Mother's love touches us from the moment of our birth and embraces us through out our lives. If we have been blessed in a special way, our Mother's love will encompass every aspect of our lives. She will leave an everlasting imprint that we, in turn, will pass on to our children.

The importance of a Mother's love and nurturing truths cannot be understated. She is often the reason a child grows up believing or not believing. Her love is often the glue that binds us together through difficult times. She is often the protector, the shield, if you will from the harms of this world.

When the world attacks we are our children's stronghold, support, and security. We should be who they come to when everything else seems wrong, and when they come we should be the ones that champion them to greatness. For then, they will achieve greatness...not always in the world's eyes, but most certainly before God.

A mothers love is warm, soft, and for the great majority of us a safe haven from the storms of this world.

Faith When Times Seem Bleak

Have you ever felt that you needed a larger dose of faith than usual? When things get really ugly and you're trying to figure out how to make "it" work.

If you haven't then you're a unique and special individual. I, on the other hand, have felt that I needed that little extra boost.

Right now, for instance, things are not going too well financially. We have a small construction company and it has fallen due to the economy.

We have searched for employment, but nothing has turned up yet. Many are praying and we are waiting.

I've discovered that faith is something you either have or you don't have...

What did you say?

Yes, I know earlier I said that I needed an extra boost of faith...that actually isn't right.

We have all the faith we need if we have the faith of a mustard seed (Luk 17:6). A mustard seed is one of the smallest of seeds, it's so tiny that when it rests in the palm of your hand you could easily lose it. After it's planted, rooted, and becomes a massive Mustard Tree.

I was told that the meaning was either have faith or your don't. My faith rests in the Creator who loved me enough to send a Savior for me. He and He alone will care for my needs as He sees fit.

Now, I know that sounds very lofty, but to be sure there are days when I feel frightened about my future and the future of our family, but God reminds me that if He feeds the fowl of the air, how much more will He care for me.

For now, I will rest in that...find peace where I am, and trust.

Clothed in Righteousness

My husband just called to me and read a portion of scripture that dealt with the Lords coming as a "thief in the night" and how we were to be prepared, with cloak and clothes ready, so as not to be ashamed when the time came.

We pondered that and since we knew that the Lord cares little about the outward appearance and much more about the heart. We came to the conclusion that He must have been referring to our being clothed in Righteousness.

How often I forget that the "clothing" the Lord finds pleasing is that which is created with a righteous spirit.

According to Wikipedia:

Righteousness (also called rectitude) is an important theological concept in Judaism and Christianity. It is an attribute that implies that a person's actions are justified, and can have the connotation that the person has been "judged" or "reckoned" as leading a life that is pleasing to God.

So how do we become righteous? Not of ourselves, certainly, but by the blood of the Only One who was Righteous, Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

2Ti 4:8 henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give to me at that day; and not to me only, but also to all them that have loved his appearing.

Loving Angels

One of the reasons I love angels is because they are always a part of our lives. Whether in human form, or as spiritual beings, God tells us that they are innumerable.

Heb 12:22 but ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable hosts of angels,...

They surround us as mighty warriors and protect us as God wills.

Have you ever talked with anyone that has been touched, in a special way, by God, through an angel? They speak in soft, powerful tones that create an aura of His presence and personification.

It's difficult to doubt their story as they share in depth and detail why they know that something supernatural has happened.

My Mom loves angels, they surround her in her home and comfort her thoughts before she sleeps at night. As she prays to her heavenly Father, she remembers His love and protection over her.

Angels touch us in a special way and you'll see them sprinkled throughout my designs.
