A Mother’s Love

DSC00819 publish

The unconditional love a mother has for her child and her thoughts, words and actions she will express for that child in order to see them grow up and become caring adults is proof alone for me that God exists and is actively working in our lives everyday.

Thank you to Mom’s of all kinds that are all over the earth for your continued love and support to children of the world.  May God’s peace be with you today and everyday.  Amen

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
