Mothers are Mighty


This Post is Courtesy of Day Spring

 



Kingdom Business. Jesus work.
The shaping of souls.
This raising tiny humans.
There are those who say that this is ordinary.
Don't buy that for a second.
Mighty.
You are mighty because you mother.
-Lisa-Jo Baker


Motherhood should come with a cape.
A really cute one with sparkles.
Don't you think?
You make being a super hero look easy.

For I can do everything with the help of Christ
who gives me the strength I need.  Philippians 4:13

Here's to the mothers.
Here's to the boo-boo kissers.
Here's to the get up and warm the milk at 2am women.
You are braver than you know. You make the music that makes the life that gives the rhythm to the day in and out and in again.

Slowly, a harmony rises from the collection of tasks every mother cycles through in a day - this sacred marriage of the mundane and the eternal. The small directly related to the massive. Kids walking around like so much eternity with skin on.

There is no part of your everyday, wash-and-rinse-and-repeat routine that isn't significant.

You make the music that makes the life that gives the rhythm to the day in and out and in again.
You are braver than you know.
Because you mother.

-Excerpt of Lisa-Jo Baker's new book, Surprised by Motherhood.

  1. I agree, moms are like superheroes! My mother raised 8 children and now she has 19 grandchildren, she's a superheroe in my book!

  2. Couldn't agree more. Moms are the apple of our Father's eye.
