The Power of Love

Mary and Jesus (zionfinearts.com)Image source: Zion Fine Arts

“You formed my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this right well.” ~Psalm 139:13-14

“There’s nothing more intoxicating than creating something from nothing. Creating something from yourself.”
~Rainbow Rowell

“Yet it came, over and over, down to this: What made someone a mother? Was it biology alone, or was it love?”
~Celeste Ng

“I wish I could
Shower your head with flowers
And anoint your feet with my tears,
For I know I have caused you
So much heartache, frustration and despair –
Throughout my youthful years.
I wish I could give you
The remainder of my life
To add to yours,
Or simply erase
The lines on your face,
And mend all that has been torn.
For next to God,
You are the fire
That has given light
To the flame in each of my eyes.
You are the fountain
That nourished my growth,
And from your chalice –
Gave me life.
Without the wetness of your love,
The fragrance of your water,
Or the trickling sounds of
Your voice,
I shall always feel
thirsty.”
~Suzy Kassem

“There is more power in a mother’s hand than in a king’s scepter.”

~Billy Sunday

Happy Mother’s Day!

    Your voice,
    I shall always feel
    thirsty.” Such beautiful words
