Mother's Day

Mother's Day is bittersweet for me. Has been for many years. This year, for some reason, was hard. Pastor Steve had the mom's remain standing as he prayed for us. I lost it... I stood there remembering all the years that I couldn't stand, and I wondered how many women were at church that morning who wanted so bad to be able to stand. My heart still hurts for those women. The unforgotten women. There is a feeling of shame... of failure, of not really fitting in...of being left out.

Please pray for these women.. Pray that God gives them comfort tonight...

God, thank you for my children, and today I ask that you bless the 3 ladies that gave so that I could stand this morning...
