It’s Mother’s Day. For years, I remember dreading this day. My husband and I had been trying to have a baby and we were struggling with infertility. It seemed like everywhere I turned, there was a teenager that could have a baby, but I could not. Fast forward and I am now the proud mother of five.
Today, I will celebrate the lives I get to pour into each and every day. Like many of you, I will also be remembering Tyler, our son that died at birth. I know the tears that will be shed from those of you that have lost a child too soon. A scripture that has been so special to me since Tyler’s death is found in Psalm 139:13-16 –
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in that secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Those words have given me such great comfort over the years.
Know that today you are on my mind. I pray that the Lord will comfort your hurting heart and pour out His grace on you.
Happy Mother’s Day! You are special!
