She spent another week in a regular hospital room where there was only one chair, occupied by dad most of the time. Mothers know their children, and she knew I was tired from working, so when I visited her, she asked me to crawl in bed with her. I didn't dare say NO. To the surprise of the night nurse, we watched a football game curled up in her hospital bed. Susi did the same at the rehabilitation hospital.
See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me. Isaiah 49:16 NKJV
My sister cooks and cleans for my parents and makes sure they take their medicine and remember their doctor appointments. I'm their once a week yard man. But, as much as I like to think otherwise, my mom does more for me than I do for her. I will never out love her. Mothers never give up on their children. We're inscribed on their hands. They're always holding our hands. Even as adults, we're always on their minds.
I am inscribed in the palm of God's hands and continually on His mind. This brings me great comfort. I may serve at church, attend bible study and talk about God's love and compassion, but no matter how much I think I know or how closely I walk with Him, He does more for me than I do for Him. I am His child forever, always on His mind. His protection is forever around me. I will never out love God.
While walking around busily working for God, deciding what you can do for Him, reach for His hand that is always there, and let Him comfort you.
"I will comfort you there in Jerusalem, as a mother comforts her child." Isaiah 66:13 NLT
Happy Mother's Day,
