Proverbs 31:2

Proverbs 31:2 (New Living Translation)


 2 O my son, O son of my womb,
      O son of my vows,

It’s funny that this is from a mom to a son.  Even in Biblical times that was an important relationship.  With my daughter I can come up with things to bond over, I am a woman, I remember being a girl.  With a son it’s not as easy.  I have to develop an interest in trains and trucks and legos. 

I can imagine that with any child girl or boy all the parents want is happiness and healthiness.  But I can also relate to this mom, who seems anguished when she says this. 

God does something amazing when He makes us moms.  He gives us more patience, more understanding, more love than we ever imagined.
