Happy Mother's Day
And that's how most of us experience our mothers. She is indeed always there. Her voice is heard long after the actual sound of her voice is forgotten. We remember how she would have reacted in this situation or that. Her admonishments and encouragements are with us. I know these things because my grandmother tells me how much she longs to see her mother again; yet, her mother has always been with her. Isn't God good to give us mothers? And isn't He good to remind us that even if our fathers and mothers forsake us, He will be there?
You've always been right there for me;
don't turn your back on me now.
Don't throw me out, don't abandon me;
you've always kept the door open.
My father and mother walked out and left me,
but God took me in. ~Psalm 27:10 The Message

Revisiting this post, I was surprised to see this scripture quoted from that source. I have since found it to be less than an accurate one, though it certainly can be poetic.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the will take me up. ~Psalm 27: 10 KJV
