Mothering Sunday

By helenlinda
I received flowers through the post yesterday from my daughter for Mothering Sunday today. Three of the chrysanthemums had netting over the blooms. When I peeled it back part way it revealed the bloom, but had covered and protected it en route.
It reminded me of the description of love in 1Corinthians Chapter 13 verse7, which is often read at wedding services
"Love always protects"
Isn't that spot on for thoughts of our mothers - The Greek word for “protects” is stegei, which literally means “to cover” and includes the idea of protecting and preserving.
A mixed day for many I know, and more painful for some than others, but one on which we can give thanks for the protective mother love.
Thanks for looking
Helen
