The ups and downs of Mother's day...

Mother's day, like some other holidays tends to leave me with a bitter taste in my mouth. For reasons that I can't really go into here because as I have said before, I don't know who reads this blog and I am not out to hurt anyones feelings. On one side I am thankful to be a mom, always. I know so many with the desire to be one that can't be and that makes me all the more thankful that being a mom came so easy to me...physically (Moses was conceived without trying), emotionally (I am overwhelmed with love for my son and I have a great support in my husband) and spirtitually (God seems to be there in all aspects of being a mom(even if I do sometimes wonder where He is)). I love all parts of being a mom. I can honestly say that. I am thankful to be home with Moses and love my "job" as homemaker and caretaker of my family. I take great pride in being a stay at home mom and will defend that position always.


On the other hand....(if you would like to read this paragraph you can email me at mosesmakes3@gmail.com).

I think God knew that I needed a little love yesterday...while out on a walk with Moses...Hearts everywhere...
God is always trying to talk to us...it's up to us to try to listen.

So to all you fantastic mothers out there...Happy Mother's Day! You are a blessing to your family, to your children and your children's children. You were hand selected to mother the children that you have and don't you ever forget that! God sees every selfless act, every time you put your needs aside to care for one of His children, He takes note and it makes His heart happy to see it. He sees your toiling, your stress, your love and knows each hope you have for your children. He is proud of you and He loves you.
Pin It!

Okay!! So i can't believe i am actually the first to comment on YOUR blog!! Happy Mother's Day to you!!! I just LOVE the pictures of all of God's "i heart you's " I also can't resist a heart shaped creation... CALADIUMS are the best.. some pink..some red.. and they just pop up and say "I JUST LOVE YOU".. Thank you for sharing..
also...i just thought i would encourage you in your MOM thoughts... your are leaving a legacy with Moses..and you do a great job daily at your walk.. your pointing towards the Lord.. THAT matters... when you start to have doubts...and feel your number is low...His ways are HIGHER... and just in looking to Him as your source..as you do... i hope you feel your number soar!!
Happy Day to you!!

wow. seeing those hearts in the plants made me giggle and almost cry, because God is SO good. Sometimes we don't take the time to stop and notice, which could make all the difference. I even get emotional sometimes looking at beautiful flowers, it's weird. but especially those that are on dead trees (or that appear to be dead, but are just dormant for the winter) and then there's HUGE beautiful brightly colored flowers surrounding those ugly brown sticks. It makes me think of how God sees us. That maybe we're ugly (or appear to be) on the outside, but God's grace makes us overwhelmingly beautiful and eventually covers it up with new life.

so excited about joining the "mom club" soon. your adventures scare me a little to be honest. I'm praying hard for a strong stomach :)

Moses... a gift planned by God!

some days it is hard to find the appreciation in the daily rituals... such a GREAT reminder that God sees it all & has our hand through it all!

Hi, there! I followed a winding path from Blissfully Domestic and ended up on your blog. I appreciate your honesty, it can be difficult to put it all that honesty out there. May God bless you even more!
