Real romance, real faith!

Blessed Mother’s Day!

Praying today is a day of blessing to all mothers, and a day when we stop to give thanks for our own mothers, even if they’re no longer with us or our relationships were difficult.

Maybe ESPECIALLY if that relationships was or still is difficult! As an adult, honouring our parents the way the Bible tells us to doesn’t mean obeying them, giving them control over our lives that only God should have, or letting them walk all over our boundaries. Someone very near to me has issues with an abusive controlling mother, so I see too much of this one!

I believe honouring our parents means forgiving them for their mistakes, letting go all that was wrong, hanging on to what was good, and holding them in a heart of compassionate love.

The same way Jesus holds us.
blessed mother
