I believe that motherhood at its most noble state creates a uniquely humane connection between living souls. This link is a shadow of that eternal connection made through Christ between God the Father and His children.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. (John 15:9)
Through this special bond, a mother can see beyond the flaws and frailty of her children into the wondrous value of their lives.
Under typical circumstances that insight is created because at the beginning a mother and child experience the utmost intimacy of a shared body. There is simply nothing in life equivalent to the sight of a mother, who has lived for months in bodily communion with her child, holding her birthed baby for the first time. The joy is beyond description.
However, in the case of adoption a mother can still establish that same wondrous bond with her child.
So, on this Mother’s Day, let’s acknowledge and honor that special part of God’s love that shines through our lives, as thankful and blessed children.
