The Mother’s God Gives Us

I’m not an expert on the subject of mothers.  My real mother and first stepmother both left my dad at critical ages in my life.  When I was 17,  my dad came home from a six week hunting trip with a new wife I’d never spoken to.  I left home when I was 17.

The events of my childhood helped shape who I am as a mother, so I don’t regret having gone through them.  But because of them, it’s always been challenging to me figuring out which “box” to put women in.  I’m aware of my walls.  It’s almost a proving ground–if women stick around, they prove they are worth me putting trust in.  And it’s to those women that I write this post today.

God always has a plan-even when we can’t see it.  And when I think about the women who’ve had a powerful impact on my life, I’m keenly aware of God’s love shown through them.  He knew I needed women in my life who’d show me grace, encourage me, teach me about patience, foster the strengths hiding inside, kick me in the butt when needed, and understand that I’d try to push them away.   Without them, I’d never have been able to put water under the bridge and reconnect with my mother and dad’s wife to allow them to be the wonderful grandmothers they are.

If you have women in your life who have different DNA, but lift you up and walk the road of life with you, please take time to thank them this Mother’s Day. I’m thanking God for mine.

    Aw, what a wonderful post, Jen! I’m proud to be one of your “moms” and love you so much! You’re one of God’s precious gifts to me. :-)

    Wonderful, heart-open post Jennifer. I’m honored to know you, to have watched you with your kiddo, and see how much love and thought you put into her.

    Yes, it’s good to have those women in our lives who teach and challenge us, and love us.

    Blessings to you! Happy Mother’s Day!

    A beautiful post Jennifer!

    Know that whatever other women have poured into your life – you are now letting it flow freely into the lives of others.

    Those that know you see it in the way you love Jordan and the remarkable little girl she is becoming before our eyes.

    God brings us just what we need when we need it. It is always precious when it comes special delivery at the hand or through the heart of another.

    Thanks for reminding us on this Mother’s Day weekend to say thanks. Praise God for ALL the women He intentionally weaves into our lives!

    What a blessing to me that He delicately knitted a place where our hearts will be woven together forever. Grateful!

    Love you BIG. Really BIG.

    Happy Mother’s Day!
