Did you know that it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday? You may roll your eyes (just the tiniest bit!) and think, “of course”. I have run across a few people this week who had not remembered that this special day would be marked so soon. Life is different now and for those of us in my part of Canada there will be no in person gatherings for most of us and as we can only purchase “essential items” currently, gift shopping is more challenging than ever.
But there are many who are wishing this day could just be struck off the calendar, at least for this year. Women struggling with infertility, miscarriage or stillbirth, single women longing for marriage and family, those estranged from mother or children and those whose mom has passed away.
Sometimes Mother’s Day is hard.
Last year, I made a short video on this topic and I considered that I was worthwhile to share it again for my new friends here, and for those of you having another challenging Mother’s Day week.
God sees you where you are and longs to comfort and restore you.
As always, I look forward to your comments. If you have a prayer need, I would consider it my privilege to lift your need to God.
