Mother's Day Goodness

A few goodies about mothers I wanted to share with you. First is a new Bible video "Mary, the Mother of Jesus."

Next is this song by Calee Reed. Her mother died last year of cancer. This is a tribute she wrote to her mother. All proceeds from the sale of "She Put the Music in Me" will be donated to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.

Elspeth Young has completed another beautiful painting, "Bearing a Child in Her Arms." Please go and read the artist's commentary at that link.

The symbolism included in this painting is simple yet profound. A note to my girls: I want this for my birthday {in November}!

And a few beautiful articles to read:
The Habit of a Mother Who Changes the World by Ann Voskamp  "Houses may be bought, built, or borrowed. But homes can only be made. And only with bits of ourselves."
Celebrating Motherhood by Misty "Mother’s Day is not merely a time to remember those who bear children, but a celebration of the essence of who we are as women. Matthew Cowley taught that women “are born with an inherent right, an inherent authority to be the saviors of human souls.”"

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!
