A Mother's Job

ďMommy, no more purple medicine.Ē sad, scared angry tears flow down her face. Being sick is both confusing and scary when you are four. Four years old is meant for playing and discovering friends and the world around you. Four years old is a time to chase on a playground or eat bugs.

But to watch, as a mother, your children, specifically, your outgoing blue eyed angel laying on her bed fighting any thought of still being sick is horrible. Knowing, as all motherís do, how she is going to hate the taste of the medicine. Sadness fills my heart as I watch her struggle against me. Struggle when I make her swallow the medicine she hates.

That is the hardest part of being a mother. Your heart aches for their pain, Your soul cries for them to understand that you are doing what you have to do to make them better. Warm baths on cold days, yucky medicines, constant temperature taking, itís all part of life. Itís all part of being a parent.

A mother canít always be a friend. She has to be an officer in an army ordering her children to fight there illnesses. To take care of themselves, to learn to manage there own needs. Sometimes she becomes the enemy. The only thing they can fight against because the real enemy is a microscopic germ that has invaded their bodies.

This same fight must be taken to the battle field of religion. A mother must prepare her daughter for unwanted ideas that society will impose. We must be firm when we tell them "you canít wear that and look beautiful." "No, that shirt is too tight and too small." That is the job of the Mom.

Even when the beautiful teenage daughter of your affection, complains, ďMom, your too old fashion. You donít know what they are wearing out their.Ē The truth is as a parent you know exactly what they are encouraging young girls to wear.

We as a Godly society have a job to all young, and we donít seem to like that type of responsibility. We have a hard time standing strong against society and tell our children the ideas on t.v. are not our ways. We do not follow society's wants but the word and the law set up before us from our own heavenly father.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
