The day I understood…

I still remember how I felt the moment I became a mom. I was so excited!!! And, so very scared too… but I was also so in love right from the start. It didn’t even matter that I hadn’t even met you yet. I didn’t care, I ALREADY LOVED YOU!!!




You became the center of who I was and I everything that defined me. You were the one who made me a mom. I was privileged, honored and so in love!!!





Then, the day finally came. I got to meet you, my beautiful baby girl. You were everything I hoped for and MORE!!! AND… I was so in love!!!


My life was no longer all about me, but instead all about this amazing, wonderful, beautiful life God had given me to be a mom to, to take care of, to love with all of my heart.





Now, why God the Father chose me to be your mom, I cannot answer. The fact that HE wanted me to be yours and you to be mine, is still something that is just the most amazing happiness to me!


It is a happiness that can only be found in motherhood. A happiness that is like no other, that flows over into immense, powerful, unconditional love.


In that love, a love that you my daughter gave me through the gift of you, I finally understood what it meant to be a mom too. As a mom, I understood my own mom too. And in that moment, I finally understood you, my own mom, and I loved you too!

I felt a new understanding, a new connection to you mom as a mother myself. Our relationship moved to a new level.

We were now moms, both of us, talking about our love, for those who had made us mothers. Love of our daughters, taught us how to love each other too!


New Life

Jesus 6 11 wehre do you need to expereince Jesus good news renewal

New life is all part of life. What do I mean? Well, God tells us to go into the world and bring life. That happens in many forms. Life can mean babies… Which are the most amazing gift the Lord could ever give us! I know, I have been blessed twice by just such a gift! I have two beautiful daughters who have grown into amazing young women. That is one of the ways we bring life into the world. My prayer is that these two amazing gifts that the Father has given me will also be gifts to the world. I know both of them have so much to give to the world. In fact they have already done so much in their young lives that have brought joy to the people around them. Life is a way to bring a fresh new perspective to the world. Sometimes this life is exactly what is needed in a certain area that will bring smiles to people who are in your path. And you know what, if that’s all it is, then it is absolutely amazing to those people that it affects.

Think about your interactions throughout your day, each day. Do you bring joy to people, do you make people smile? It is important. The Lord puts people in our path, on purpose. Often those people just need a smile, need to know someone notices them… Sees them. Do you see people? People bring life to others and in that moment, that life makes them realize they are noticed, they are important. God loves each one of us and He cherishes and loves us. We should love others and we do that by bringing life to them. Bringing life means enabling a newness to be felt. A newness that just might give someone a hope that either they never had or a hooe that had been lost.

Life is how we truly live.  Life as the Lord provides us is new life. When we come to Him and accept Him, Jesus, as our Savior, then He makes us new. We are washed by the blood of Jesus and we become brand new creations as His children who abide in Him.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.        2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)

A baby is born, just like you and I come into to the world as new people when we receive Christ into our hearts. We are new and fresh and pure when the Lord cleanses us from our sins. Let us be ones who spread new life as we share the good news about the One who is good and who can make us new… Live like a newborn baby!

Look at your life today and see how you can fill others with life… Even if it is just with a smile. Let those around you know that you see them, that they are noticed, that they have a purpose. Maybe that is why you are here… To breathe life into others!

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.” C.S. Lewis
