But Do You Love Mom?   5 comments

This morning as I was spending quiet time reflecting on my current circumstances and trying to reconcile the good of it all, I thought of the scripture verse that reads, “All things work together for good for those who love God…” Romans 8:28 That led me to wonder about those who barely believe there is a God at all. I then recalled the following wonderful example of the conversation between the twins in the womb discussing the existence of Mom.

~~~“Mother???? But you don’t believe in a mother, do you? Where is she?”

“She is here, all around us. We are and we live within her and through her. Without her we couldn’t exist at all!”

“Nonsense! I’ve never sensed a mother, consequently she doesn’t exist.”

“Yes, sometimes, when we are very quiet you can hear her sing, or feel how she caresses our world.” ~~~

There is still a bridge to cross after believing in God … to get to the “All things work together for good for those who LOVE God” part.

My experience has been that after I first believed, as an adult, and consciously admitted my faith (belief) in God; I experienced God’s love to enter and fill my heart. In time I was able to acknowledge the Spiritual love and goodness of God in all things – Then, and only then, could I begin my humble journey of not just believing in God but loving God in return, with gratitude for everything in my life, including the pain and hardship, and for the life which is to come.

My faith is believing that “All things do work together for good for those who love God,” because I trust that God … my Mom-God knows what She is doing …

The conversation between the twins ends like this:

“You are crazy! Nobody ever came back after birth. Life is over with birth. That’s it.”

“I admit that nobody knows what life after birth will look like. But I do know that we will see our mother then, and that she will take care of us.”

    • I”m sure it did – especially being the mom you are … and a child of God too … Thank you Charlene for your comments and confidence in Christ ..


  2. Hi Doreen! But, do you love Mom? Probably the most beautiful words that I have ever heard. Are these actually your words or did you read it someplace? I loved reading the comparison between beginning life and beginning the after-life. I sent it to my BFF this morning and she also loved it! I told her of your talent. Love reading and viewing your beautiful photos! mq


  3. This is a wonderful parallel about faith in God that I saw illustrated a while back — The quotations are from a most gifted child of God (in my opinion) author who posted it on the internet a while back who is anonymous as far as I can tell. Thank you for sharing it Mary — God bless you!
