A masterpiece of music or art. A civilization. A history-changing book, or discovery, or idea. How amazing to think that all the most lasting, significant things I can think of have the longevity of a lightning bolt when compared to the eternal nature of a human being.
What an honor it is, then, to be used by God to create life, and to have the opportunity to guide someone towards a fruitful present and an exciting eternity!
The privilege of being a Mother is not one I take for granted, as I think of the beautiful women I know who would like to celebrate mother's day with a baby of their own, but for one reason or another cannot at this time. May the Lord fulfill your heart's desire, or give you something even better!
For Mother's Day, I got a card from Alaina, and the Monday afterwards she took me out to Red Lobster for some seafood . . .
