“Mother Love: The Strong Tie that holds the Family Together”
“A mother is more precious than all the finest of jewels and worthy of our continual admiration.”-Jennifer Workman
“Wow,” where do I begin to exemplify all of the great mothers that have left an indelible impression on this earth. I will begin with the “mothers of all mothers,” Eve. Although Eve’s life was categorized by disobedience to the clear directive of God and partaking of the “forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6, NLT),” she is the “mother of all creation” and from her proceedeth all people of every creed, nationality and ethnicity. Although the bible doesn’t go into specific detail about her “motherly ways,” I believe that as all mothers try to be every day, she was a good mother, nurturer and took care of her children the best way that she could and what was deemed appropriate at that time! As God gave her a wonderful opportunity to be a mother, likewise, he has given to all of us that have transitioned into motherhood. Having stated such, I will try to highlight women that I believe are great examples of “mother love” and hope this article will inspire us to be great mothers, sisters, friends and people as a whole in all areas of our lives.
Always remember that mothers hold a special place in all of our lives. So many times mothers are overlooked, under-appreciated and not shown gratitude from other loved ones around them. God has blessed us with wonderful mothers and while we have them in our lives let us cherish them and constantly exemplify our love towards them. There are many people today that have lost their mothers and are not able to tell them how much they love them and wished they were able to do so. The Lord has blessed me this past year with the blessed opportunity to be a mother and with it, it has offered many challenges and thus can be very overwhelming at times, but regardless, I am in love with my son (Jaarr) and wouldn’t change nothing in terms of me being a mother. I love being a mother and I love raising a beautiful child that is undoubtedly a blessing from the Lord.
