Minutes may seem to go by slow or fast, but they are all sweet. Once they are they are gone. Come along with me on my adventure of mom, teacher, and wife.

Natural Instinct

1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NAS)
 Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
 Truth: If God makes the animals with their instinct to encourage.  How much more should we?

I had a female cardinal bird stuck in my garage the other day.  I tried to help her out to guide her to outside.  She really was quite frightened of me.  What stood out to me was that she had a friend.  A couple of them.  But one that was close.  This other female cardinal was just squawking and flying around outside.  She actually dive bombed me once.  There was at least one other in the bushes or trees some where caring on.  We all need friends when we are stuck, to cheer us on to keep going and trying granted the windows in our garage that are impossible to open and close are not the way to go.  But these other birds where there for her and cared for her.  And I didn’t get her out. But her friends finally help find her way out.  Are we that much different?  We are God’s creation and we are social beings.  We need other women to help us and encourage us, who will try to protect us.  You do not have to go through this journey of motherhood alone.  You are not meant to. You are not alone.  Others are going through what you are.  Also know that God is your ultimate friend and mate and He will always be there.  Just cry out to Him.  I mean really gut wrenching, raw cries.  He will be there for you and will help you find the special friend that can help you, if she isn’t there already.  Motherhood has taught me so much and one lesson is to be real and ask for help and be a help to other moms.
