I missed mine yesterday. I missed her words:
"Everything is ok. It will be."
Her mother's love was huge. It had no bottom to it.
She had listening ears to my heart.
I could count on those words.
I hope my motherhood leaves those words imprinted on my
children's hearts. They reflect the words of Christ.
"I am making all things new." " I have loved you with
an everlasting love." It is his hesed.
I thought about this yesterday --deeply.
"The love of God is meant to make us valiant."
Counting on the love of God and "everything is ok"
to soak and be into the depth of the hearts of my children
and the next generation.
We need valiant people in this world.
"brave, courageous, intrepid in danger"
"be strong, be well, be worth, have power, be able, be in health"
