For so many women in this world, myself included, mother's day is complex.
There are women grieving right now because of this day.
There are women who feel alone right now because of this day.
There are women wondering how to feel because their emotions are so tangled up in loss, grief, pain, joy, etc.
Wherever you are in this day and whatever you feel or are having a hard time feeling know that God is there in the midst of your feels (Zechariah 2:10, Joel 2:27).
You have taken account of my miseries; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?
He is The God who SEES you and me. He is the Abba Father that understands how hard it is to raise children. He is in your midst and mine. He knows every number of hairs on your head and mine.
Jesus knows how harsh, cruel, and broken this world is. He knows that this world is not our home and that weeping may endure in this world but joy forever in His Holy heaven.
May God help you to feel His presence. May God help you sort through your emotions. May God sustain you. Amen and Amen

This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you are to walk in it.
