A Mothering Longing Fulfilled

Sarai had a longing, a deep longing for children. For a short time, she had not been able to conceive. She poured her mothering heart into two other children and blessed them tremendously. I know because they were my grandsons when they were little.
She and her husband, Erik had decided to adopt before they even married. So they adopted a son in whom they delighted.

Friends and family continued to pray she’d be able to conceive a biological child.

Surprise! Sarai conceived a little girl. Then they wanted to add more children but they experienced heartbreak and then another heartbreak as they lost two babies through miscarriage.

Sharing and Caring For Others ~ A Tribute to My Mom

On this Mother’s Day, I’m thinking the amazing impact my mom had on me in shaping the direction of my life. Her example of sharing and caring for others, inspires me to this day.

One of my earliest memories is  of her teaching women to read in what is now the Republic of Congo, Africa. She let me come alongside her and had me go to individual women to help them learn to read. 

She wrote letters home to the USA asking people to send boxes of used clothes for the mission so the African children could have at least one outfit.
