On this Mother’s Day, am sharing some writings about Mothers: “A Mother’s Arms” (written 2013) and two in On The Back Step: “What Is A Mother?” and “Mother Love”
There’s something about being hugged with a mother’s arms,
It provides relief, comfort and love.
A mother’s hug has the same meaning in any language or culture.
It can say many things:
But the message most sought after from a mother’s arms is,
A Mother’s arms carry the same message as our Heavenly Father when He enfolds us
In His everlasting arms of love. It’s the assurance that everything is going to be OK, and
that He’s there for us.
As years go by, I have found that a time comes when roles are reversed and a mother
becomes the recipient of these hugs and “I love yous” from her children, grandchildren
and great- grandchildren. These are times when we all are blessed as our Heavenly
Father enfolds His everlasting arms of love around us all.
“The eternal God is my refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
It started out so simply
As her child grew, this love grew,
She didn’t know how binding this tie had become
And she found this life was part of herself ………..
Then it was time for him to walk alone
Now he is a man
Her love and prayers will follow her child
A mother is a potter, molding a piece of human clay
A mother is an artist, trying to bring out on living
A mother is a physician, whose most effective medication
A mother is a teacher, teaching right from wrong,……..
A mother is a model, showing in real life how to live.
A mother is a dietitian, laundress, seamstress, nurse,
A mother is God’s hand. He loves and cares for His
For all this she is paid – not in money,
