This is worth celebrating
Sunday is Mothers Day, but of course you probably knew that. This special day holds a different perspective for me now that my mom has passed away and our children are grown and have taken on the responsibilities of honoring my wife. So instead of planning for the special event, I’ve spent time reflecting on the status of mothers in America.
Recently motherhood was the victim of a full, frontal attack by the pro-abortion liberal elites. You were probably as outraged as me when Hilary Rosen pompously declared that Ann Romney, wife of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, has never worked a day in her life.
As the second of five boys and the father of four sons, I can assure Hilary Rosen and Barack Obama that stay-at-home moms work very hard. Her comment exposed the contempt and disregard of women who choose the noble career of dedicating themselves full-time to nurture and raise their children. Of course this doesnt mean mothers working outside the home are any less honorable. Thats the neat thing about Mothers Day. Its a ringing, full-throated endorsement of all women who say yes to life.
Mothers Day can also be bittersweetoften more bitter than sweetfor women whove experienced abortion. Its a time we should reach out to those moms with loving arms and assure them of the forgiveness found in Jesus.
Theres lots of inspiring things you can find on the Internet that honors and celebrates mothers. I want to tell you about one I just watched. Its about a young married woman named Lacey Buchanan from Woodbury, TN who has a baby boy named Christian. This brief video is really a must-see that will leave you inspired about motherhood and the blessings that come, even when circumstances are less than expected or hoped for.
When you watch, please pay attention to the young mothers facial expressions as she tells Christians story. They speak much louder than words, and clearly reveal the love and passion this young woman has for her son. Id like to give her a big hug and tell her shes a wonderful mother. And Id love to hear Christians giggle. Click here to watch video.
My hope and prayer is that you celebrate Mothers Day regardless of your situation. Theres no more demanding and fulfilling job on the face of this earth. You and I wouldnt be here if it werent for mom. Whether we celebrate their memory or their presence in our lives, let the whole world know you love them for saying yes to life.
Sincerely for babies and their mothers,
