I want to wish every Mother in our group a wonderful Mother’s Day. God bless each family represented here. Remember the best thing we can do for all of our adult children and our estranged children is to keep them in constant prayer. Only God can change others.
We would love to hear how you are doing. Please post more often. We appreciate our new and long-time friends on our site. We are here to give support when needed. I check in here each day.
Happy Mother's day to all! I received a Mother's day gift from the Lord this morning. My ES sent me a text yesterday saying "What are you doing?" I am two states away with my mother visiting my youngest sister. I felt frustrated and sad that I couldn't be there in case he might actually want to see me. I was feeling the pain of separation and the yearning. I tried to take hope in the fact that he contacted me at all. I played "what if". What if had wanted to see me, what if I actually got to see him, what if he hugged me, what if there was a breakthrough moment and all the separation and doubt were over. I was alternately joyful and in despair. I was so frustrated that I traveled so far away from home. But the Lord spoke to me this morning about trusting His plan for my son. I realized that my goal is not always His goal. I want my son reconciled with me. The Lord wants him reconciled with Him. Reuniting with me in this life is nothing compared with the importance of my son reconciling with the Lord. I hope this is helpful to someone today. Bless you all. Have a great Mother's day!
Happy Mother’s Day to all. Do something nice for yourself self today. I bought myself a beautiful orchid plant and had a beautiful bow put on it. I have also invited 2 other hurting mothers to dinner today. Lord give me the strength the complete this task today. I am preparing fresh vegetables, purchasing a rotisserie chicken, fresh seasonal fruits etc. you get the idea. We will eat laugh and watch the movies on Netflix of their choice. If you are reading this before 2 pm eastern standard time pray for us. Though my Ed has passed 4 years I still hurt. She was My only daughter. My situation was parental alienation. JeepGirl, Luke, and Faith where great sources of support during my hardest times. Most of my hard times where in the old place but I have followed you over here and check in from time to time and pray often for you all. I especially am following the good news of JeepGirl’s blessings! I thank God for every step I see your family make Jeep I can truly can you have blessed my life. This place blesses my life and the lives of many many others let’s keep it alive! HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY 🙏🏽💜🦋🎁dear sweet women and men of God. I truly love your hearts.💕
Only heard from our son last December but haven't heard from him since. Figured it would go that way. Also need prayer for our 24 year old grandson. Last Friday found our he had turned himself into the police for multiple counts of molestation with nieces and half-sisters spanning over 9 years. After the 4 children are all interviewed by psychologists, he will be arraigned. One of the episodes could have been at our house. This is the grandson of our oldest daughter... he will probably be in prison for 10-20 years. It nearly broke up our family. Needless to say, Mother's Day was fractured this year. Blame was generously handed out. Husband of second daughter said to her, "I told you that I never wanted you to take our girls to that grandma's house." Oldest daughter and all 4 of her children plus husband of oldest granddaughter stayed away. Husband of second daughter wouldn't let her or the kids come if any of the boys of first daughter came. This is in the middle of the last two weeks of school with our granddaughter from third daughter graduating and both of those girls doing so well in awards ceremony. My emotions are running rampant like a roller coaster yet God gives peace. So please pray that the truth comes out, no matter the outcome. OUr whole family is affected...except for the ES. Strange blessing.
renate9, You are so right. We must take life moment by moment. Yes, our God is our very present help in trouble. Jesus never fails! People fail and betray us but not our faithful Savior. Keeping you in prayer.
everloving11, I am very sorry to hear all that you and the family are going through. Jesus will carry you when you can’t carry on. He will never leave you. I will pray for your family and your grandson. Please keep us posted as to how things are going and how you are doing. God bless you! 🙏🏻
