Raising Eagles: A Mother's Day Sermon
Exodus 2, Proverbs 31, 2 Timothy 1
Those of you who are mothers I want you to think back with me for a moment to that time when you first realized that you were going to be a mom.
For us, it was the sonogram...as the outline of my daughter's head got clearer and clear.... As I saw that tiny heart beating as if to scream out... LIFE AS YOU KNOW IT IS OVER!!!!
Julie was officially a mom.
For her...Some things came instinctively, caring for the newborn, how to hold the baby... but what really scared us was questions like, ''What are we going to do when they learn how to walk??? Or even worse, what will we do when they learn how to drive!?!''
Being a parent was a really big deal... God was entrusting you with a life!
I remember leaving the hospital and thinking... do they know us? Is it legal just to let us carry this baby home???? Do they know that we can hardly balance our check book???
And you know... those times occur throughout your life.
The first real illness... I remember when Carly had a seizure and Julie was at home all by herself and I was out preaching somewhere. I remember taking Cole to the Doctor and him telling us that we had to drive to Huntsville immediately for an emergency surgery.
The first day of school... as your little girl or little boy steps on to that bus and you feel like a part of your heart is being torn out right in front of you.
The first date... when you have to entrust your little princess to a salvage idiot. (Consider reading the application to date my daughter)
When they go off to college
When they get married
When they call you and ask if you prefer to be called, Grandma, nana, or nanny
Life as a mom is a constant roller coaster of emotions
Today I want to let a few mothers of spiritual giants put an arm around you and lend you a word of encouragement.

God has BIG PLANS for your LITTLE CHIL ...
