it involved mothering. In fact, the only times I’ve ever begged God for anything, it involved mothering:
We remember moms this weekend. But I am also remembering that the God I believe in loves me like a mother. This changes everything for those of us who have mixed feelings about Mothers’ Day.
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you. Isaiah 66:13a
Many of us who are or have been or pray we will one day be mothers are reminded this weekend that sometimes we are beggars.
