I’m a greeting card aficionado – I like to send and receive them, especially via snail mail, the ‘old-fashioned’ way.
This week I sent out cards to numerous friends in celebration of their being mothers. I used an online program (SendOut Cards) and selected what I thought was one with a spiritual slant. Its front cover said: “God couldn’t be everywhere, so he created mothers.” I’ve heard that before and had thought it nifty, so I wrote a personal note inside and sent it out. I actually sent several out, all specifically personalized.
I know that some moms can be pretty special including having the ability to be unconditionally loving even with the most challenging of offspring.
But I realized that to say “God couldn’t be everywhere, so he created mothers” misses the mark, that it doesn’t fit into my belief system.
And, that’s because God IS everywhere!
