Protecting our children with our life

Mommy Mantra August 8, 2014: For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it. Matthew 16: 25

I always just listened to those word with out really understand what they meant. I only knew that they did not touch me, I as not ready to understand them.

When I was pregnant with the twins it was a very difficult one. I had a gallbladder attack, something common with women carrying multiple babies, and they wanted to take me into surgery, but I said no. The attack was not so sever that it was life threatening; and even if it were the womb was rented I wasn’t going to evict anyone.

I was then that I got a sense of those words: For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, I was going to protect those yet unknown children under all circumstances.

Today let’s pray for all those moms, Mr. Moms, who protect their children with their whole heart, soul and life, in other words let’s pray for each other.
