If you find yourself encountering moments of grief, whether for yourself or in your experience with motherhood, don’t be afraid.

Grief isn’t the end of your story. Joy is.

The God who loves you, calls you by name, and unconditionally delights in you.  He will never turn you away.

Jesus always welcomes you and me, as little girls and grown up women.  His heart is gentle and meek.  Yet His power to love us is strong enough to bring joy right alongside the sorrows.

The love of God is mysterious.  It will breathe life in and through us. 

This is the kind of kingdom God tells us to enter freely into each and every day. It doesn’t matter whether you and I can see it in our moments of weakness.

In God’s eyes, you and I are His hidden treasure.  Especially on Mother’s Day.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy  over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” 
~ Jesus, Matthew 13:44
