We are One under the Same Sun

Mathew 5:43-48
"But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." Mathew 5:44-45

This morning there was a light rain that left the morning air cool and crisp....a nice and refreshing break from the humid heat of June weather in central Texas. I drank my coffee on my front porch and felt as if I was one with Heaven. The perfectly clear blue sky and evenly placed white clouds let the sun seem as if it was truly beaming from Heaven. My sweet little friend, Mr. Blue Bird, was going from one tree to the next and the blooming impatients and hydranges in my shaded garden still had rain drops from Heaven rested on their leaves. I hadn't read the gospel reading yet but how ironically I thought about that the same sunrise that I see as pure Heaven's light, others that are living in darkness might find it beautiful too. We are all one under the same God and the same sky. The same sunrise that we witness with our little ones under are feet is the same sunrise that our enemies and the evil ones witness. This is proof that we are all one in the same family of God....some striving to live their lives as best as we can so we can spend Eternity in Heaven and others that can not see the light because they are encompassed by the darkness of evil.

So here we have these pure and innocent precious children under our roof and care. How do we keep them all the days of their lives under the brightness of Heaven's light in a world where so many live in darkness? It begins with us, the mothers(and ofcourse Fathers too). We have to be in daily prayer and conversation with Heaven regarding these little souls entrusted to us. We have to be witnessing to them through our daily actions of joyful living and unity with God. We have to teach them about forgiveness by first forgiving our own enemies. We have a big, big job in front of us and we have to fight for the light through prayer and LOVE.

So today, Ladies, don't waste time. Forgive your enemies and pray for the ones who persecute you. For if we do this, we are that much closer of teaching our children about the Love of God. Pray daily for your family....for each child and their future. A mothers job is the greatest in the world.....for we are not only performing daily tasks of child-rearing and home making, we are shaping and molding souls that will live forever! As the world has started taking this job lightly and pushing it aside and onto others, we have to stand up and believe that there is no greater work in the world. We have no time to waste....the world is passing us by in a hurry. We are all one under the same sun, so teach your children to follow the light of the sun always. Start today on forgiving your enemies and praying for your family's salvation!

Blessings to you this Tuesday!
