Morning. My favorite part of the day. Quiet. Still. Hopeful. Before rising, I begin with…
My wife loves being a mother.
I’ve never heard her once wish that she could be away from her children.
She embraced it wholeheartedly from the moment our first daughter was placed in her arms to this present moment where that same daughter is navigating her way as a sixteen year old.
It’s not that it’s all been easy – some days are absolutely exhausting.
But she hangs on during those days with a devotion that can only come from a parent or a spouse.
If I had to sum up her role as a Mom, it would have to be “sacrificial”.
I love that innate commitment that God places in us that says “I will never stop loving you – I would die for you”. A commitment that has only truly been shown on the cross.
My hat is off to all of you who live the daily life of motherhood. I think it is one of the most difficult jobs on earth.
And one of the most fulfilling.
Happy Mother’s Day!

I am in awe of your work. You say and paint, you illustrate what is in my soul better than I can say it or show it. Thank you.
