From the desk of Esther:
Almost the whole world celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday or today (depending on your timezone).
The role of the mother is specialised as she is the one who brings life to the world. But the role of mother cannot and should not be restricted to females who bears a child and nurtures a child. Each one of us can take on the many duties of a guide, lead or support for someone. I have seen or witnessed a male acting the role of mother for his loved ones.
Our God, who is part of our daily life and happenings, has no gender restrictions. So, let us take a moment to pray and thank God for the various roles he is always playing in our life. Let us also give thanks to God for allowing us to be a guide, lead or support in someone’s life.
Happy Mother’s Day to all!
“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” ~Rudyard Kipling~
(I choose to start this blog rolling with this quote. Rumi is one of my favourite poets. His works never fail to amaze me and move me to tears at times. In my personal opinion, Rumi works focus on our inner connections, love, joy, peace and purpose.)
From the desk of Esther:
Many times, we would have fallen – not physical, but in terms of emotions and feelings. As humans, all of us possess various resistance levels. At times, even our resistance levels are not enough for us to continue and we may “melt” or “break”. It is common for people to condemn or say negative things when we fail. It does not matter how many times we fail. Each time we meet a failure, we need to place our trust in God / Source. We might not get the answers we want, but we will get some form of determination or hope in another way to continue.
There is no beginning or end in anything. Everything is a continuation. And if we do not continue to move forward despite our failings, who else will? So, my friends, let us all move on in faith and hope at any given time.
“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.” ~ Rumi ~
