Happy Mother's Day to all women!

What a beautiful day it is today, and yesterday. Everything is so bright and beautiful, full of the colors of Spring. That in itself is something to enjoy, and appreciate.
Today however is another day that is to be celebrated by all women. Its the day to reflect on our God given direction in life. Sheri L. Dew reminds us: "While we tend to equate motherhood solely with maternity, in the Lord's language, the work mother has layers of meanings. Of all the words they could have chosen to define her role and her essence, both God the Father and Adam called Eve the mother of all living and they did so before she ever bore a child. Like Eve, our motherhood began before we were born. Motherhood is more than bearing children, though it is certainly that. It is the essence of who we are as women. It defines our very identity, our diving stature and Nature, and the unique traits our Father gave us.
May all the women in the world remember this great directive we have been blessed with, and hold it sacred now and throughout eternity is my prayer. Happy Mother's Day !
