Mothers Are Special, By Edd Sterchi

 When God made mothers He made a very special creature indeed.     The unconditional love God gave mothers for their children is probably the closest thing on earth to His incredible love for us.   The gentle tenderness a mother expresses in handling her newborn child is so reminiscent of the tender loving care God promises to the faithful.     The sincere sympathy mothers show for hurt elbows and hurt hearts is not unlike the compassion God has for us.     The sacrificial unselfishness mothers demonstrate time and time again towards their children reminds us of how benevolent God has been to us.     The soft special kisses and the always sweet smiles that mothers so generously give can help us to understand and appreciate the joy God has designed for families in the here and now and for Christians forevermore.     God bless loving mothers for showing us many important things about God.
