Lord help all of us mom's who are wrongly judged or feel scrutinized (sometimes by each other) to remember that You give us the skills we need and the wisdom we need to raise our children if only we will follow You, just like you give this dove the same skills and love for her baby. Help me to remember, and moms in general, that we are not in a contest to have the brightest, most talented, prettiest, most fashionable... children. We are given them for such a short while to hold and care for. Help us to cherish them and hold them under our wings and teach them to soar like eagles.
Isaiah 40:31but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
