12 May The Most Influential Role – Mother
From the Desk of Carol Soelberg:
We honor mothers and those who recognize the importance of the role they play in our lives. We hope you will enjoy this article by Tom Christensen as he identifies the significance of mothers and honors the mother of his children.
“Motherhood is the gift of God to women. How grateful we must be to God for this wonderful gift that brings such joy to the whole world, women and men alike! Yet we can destroy this gift of motherhood, especially by the evil of abortion, but also by thinking that other things like jobs or positions are more important than loving and giving oneself to others. No job, no plans, no possessions, no idea of “freedom” can take the place of love. So anything that destroys God’s gift of motherhood destroys His most precious gift to women–the ability to love as a woman.”
My woman’s beauty is not seen by all
Gracing starlet magazines
In tanned skin or tight jeans.
Bleached teeth or dyed hair,
That’s not her flair.
Her beauty is even more rare.
Her beauty shines from within
As an infant she rocks,
Cleans house, feeds the flocks.
Worn shoes but clean socks,
Stained shoulder, polyester,
In her heart God has blessed her.
Her beauty shines in darkness and cold
In warm expressions,
Talks, healing sessions,
She treats my depressions.
When pride and strife curse life,
I find peace in my wife.
Let the heavens resound that here is found
A woman fair and true.
As life we share,
None can compare
The most beautiful of all.
