Mother’s Day 2009

11 May

We had a great day @ NCC yesterday celebrating mothers and also the God who gave moms such wonderful characteristics that we often take for granted.  Mother’s Day isn’t great for everyone, though.  Some moms have lost children to cruel diseases and some children are estranged from their moms.  Relationships are most certainly complicated.

On May 8th, I was both thrilled and heart-broken.  The wheels of justice began to spin quickly for Kathleen Savio, as Drew Peterson was arrested for her murder.  For that I was grateful.  But, there are 4 children that are now most likely hurting and more confused than ever as they are now without their mothers (Kathleen & Stacy) and their father.  I’m so happy that Drew was arrested but my heart breaks for his kids.  Please pray for them with me.  Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, too, will never be the same for them.

May the God of all peace grant them divine comfort.

    My prayers are with those kids. Mother’s Day is a painful reminder for many who lost a mother or a child.
