My Flesh and Blood

urlAs most or all of you know, I am a mother and a pastor and obviously, a writer. The three intersect every day and each informs and influences, strengthens and encourages the other.  I travel with a Bible and a diaper bag.  I am praying for my congregation and the miracle of a tantrum- free morning.  I’m still waiting by faith for the latter.  I am carrying the word of God and my son in my heart.

So often, when I think about one, I will see a connection to the other.  One day, the realization was so strong that I sat down to right about it.  Then, I submitted my thoughts regarding the connections made with ministry and motherhood to Alicia Porterfield, the editor of Divine Duet: Ministry and Motherhood and she liked them.  Consequently, she has posted my reflection on who I see when I look at my son and who Christ sees when he looks at us.  I titled it “My flesh and blood.”
