He’s My Son

TODAY’s Reflections: I have been reflecting on the courage and strength of a sweet friend who, for a time, didn’t know where her son was, and he was in trouble.

It caused me to remember that the hearts of some mothers are called upon to go through extremely difficult life experiences regarding their children and their choices. The sorrow can be almost more than one can bear–especially if you see the child running head-on into difficulties that they seem to not see for themselves.

I know from personal experience that it is the depth of a mother’s love that is linked to the depth of the sorrow. Yet that quality of love–which is a reflection of God’s love– is the blessing that connects us to God and causes us to seek to draw upon His power and grace when our own strength is not sufficient for the challenge before us.

I have songs that remind me of going through heart-wrenching times with my own children. This was a song that reflected my feelings when going through some deep concerns for one of my sons in days gone by.

Can anyone relate to this?  Join our community, and post your comments under this post on the FamilyTreeGal Facebook page.
