Older and Closer...

"...there is no such thing as being only a mother. You exist as ______________'s mother only because you first exist as God's creature. That relationship is older and closer...He also loves you..."

-The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis (p. 91)

When I heard this read yesterday, I was overjoyed and reassured all over again. Yes, we are mothers but firstly and more importantly we are daughters of God. Bearing and raising children is a noble and high calling. But it is NOT where my righteousness comes from. My righteousness comes solely from the blood of Christ. What a relief for me and my children!


  1. Amen! Like you, I rejoice to hear this!

  2. I also was comforted by this. Thank you for repeating it.

  3. Thank you Kaylee, excellent reminder!
