Six years ago today, I became the mother of a son.
There are still not words to describe the profound beauty of the relationship between the mother and her son. What a rush of emotions I have, with the vivid memory of holding him in my arms for the first time ... knowing that his dependence on me as his mother would be such a fleeting season.
As his mother, I am seeking balance. Nurturing a boy, while seeking God in the mystery of shaping him into a man who walks in the truth.
I have embraced the mystery and revel in the privilege to raise a young man for the kingdom of God.
My heart is full ... again.
