Soon we’ll be observing a day honoring mothers.  Let’s not forget those who have lost children and pray that this day will also honor them for their gift of life.  These are the ones who don’t find much joy in this holiday – those whose children were stillborn or miscarried – those who have experienced the joy of giving birth, but lost their children to illness or tragic death – those who keep their children safe while their husbands serve their country – moms of children with special needs – moms of children who have turned to a life of crime or addiction.

I know of one woman who lost six children to miscarriage.  Each one of those children holds a special place in her heart.  She named each one and they have lived in her memory ever since their death.  Each child becomes a human being at the time of conception and, had they made it to full term, they would be an active part of the family.

These women deserve to be honored on Mother’s Day.  They have rejoiced when that child was conceived and mourned when they were lost, still they are mothers.  If you know someone who has gone through any of these situations, tell her how special she is. Giving the gift of life to another human being is one of the most important things a woman can do.

Moms are purveyors of comfort, deliverers of love and encouragement, merchants of morality and learning, solicitors of peace and understanding.  They are the vessel of God’s handiwork.  Mother’s need a pat on the back each and every day of the year!  So do those who have lost their beloved children.

Psalm 139:13, “For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  2. Beautiful post! Sadly, just a few weeks ago, I congratulated anew bride at my church on being pregnant. I was going on and on about how happy I was for them, and how exciting it is, but that very week we learned she miscarried. I regretted my over exuberance. But you are absolutely right. I feel for these women who suffer these losses. Great reminder.

    Thanks too for following me!
