Are you Stretched Sweet Mom?


Dear Mom,

When my oldest child was 15, the others were 13, 11, 3, 2. Raising older ones, and little ones at the same time, felt like I was being s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d as a mother – somewhat similar to an elastic band. Perhaps you feel the same way today, s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d. We are not just moms, but consultants and counsellors, we’re always cooks and housekeepers, and then throw in a full-time job, and yes, moms can feel s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d. My best advice – stay close to Jesus. He said, “Come to me if you are weary and I will give you rest.” His promise and His invitation, is for you.

Lovingly – Mama

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30, NIV)
