This Mother's Day follows a year spent navigating unique, unforeseen circumstances. There is no doubt this year has highlighted the beauty and importance of sacrificial motherhood. One could argue that motherhood is the most "essential" of all jobs. Dr. James Dobson said, "There is no assignment on earth that requires the array of skills and understanding needed by a mom in fulfilling her everyday duties."
Breakpoint author Shane Morris describes the beauty of motherhood in the age of COVID-19 saying, "...confined to home by events out of our control, I see more clearly what the Psalmist meant when he called the wife of one who fears the Lord 'fruitful vine' flourishing within his house...these four walls often reverberate with the sound of chaos. But if I listen closely, especially when Gabi is singing hymns with the kids, I can hear that choral music."
This Mother's Day we celebrate the many evidences of God's grace observed in families across the country. A mother's voice continues to be one of the sweetest melodies of all. Take the time to write a note, create a short video, compile a gift basket or host a gathering expressing thanks and appreciation for all your mother, or mother figure, has done to serve your family this year.
