There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities and certainly different children. . . What matters is that a mother LOVES HER CHILDREN DEEPLY! – M. Russel Ballard
Helen Steiner Rice once said: A mother’s love is like a fortress and we seek protection there when the waves of tribulation seem to drown us in despair.
The protective love of a mother is a reflection of God’s love and protection for His children. Mothers and children can turn to our Heavenly Father for protection in times of trouble or for help in daily life. We all have a place to safely abide.
~ Happy Mother’s Day.
Under His Wings
Under His wings I am safely abiding,
Though the night deepens and tempests are wild,
Still I can trust Him; I know He will keep me,
He has redeemed me, and I am His child.
Under His wings, under His wings,
Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever.
Under His wings, what a refuge in sorrow!
How the heart yearningly turns to His rest!
Often when earth has no balm for my healing,
There I find comfort, and there I am blessed.
Under His wings, oh, what precious enjoyment!
There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er;
Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me,
Resting in Jesus, I’m safe evermore.
