Mothering

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some photos of the Hens with the little people who fill our days.  God gives us this role as an incredible blessing and promises to be with us in His word, always!  These passages are a few of our favorites when the going is great, when mom-life gets tough or the days get long.  Or the nights get long, or the nights get long.  ;)  To mothers everywhere, God has equipped you, made you amazing, and will continue to bless your work with His little lambs.  

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.  Isaiah 40:11

“Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other. For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?"  1 Corinthians 6b-7

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-23

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall. God will help her at break of day.  Psalm 46:1-5

Happy Mother's Day!
