All you peoples, clap your hands,
shout to God with cries of gladness,
For the LORD, the Most High, the awesome,
is the great king over all the earth.
R. God is king of all the earth. Psalm 47, and the words of my heart this day!
"you will grieve, but your grief will become joy.
When a woman is in labor, she is in anguish because her hour has arrived;
but when she has given birth to a child,
she no longer remembers the pain because of her joy
that a child has been born into the world." John 16
Pat's mom had 10 children including my Patrick! He also carried forth her love of the farm! Thanks, mom for my life and as a result Ruth's life and now her kids are having the life she had, and for her to want that and foster it means she loved it, too! My heart is full this day!
Jesus, time together sharing is by far more wonderful than stuff for Mother's day. On our way back home after this amazing time together mom and I said that this was our Mother's day gift to each other and we both were wiping tears. "This life is all because of you, mom!" Jesus, we are filled to overflowing with all we have been given - most especially the gift of LIFE to protect and cherish at all costs! Be with all mother' and help them to value and honor the life within their wombs from conception to natural death. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
