Silhouette Of a Mother’s Love

 

The dark silhouette of a mother’s love for her son, Augustine–

Her long-suffering silent prayers, her weeping and unwavering hope for Augustine’s eternal life continued until her prayers brought conversation and baptism to Augustine.

“This was the mother who had wept over me for many years so that I might live in your sight.” —St. Augustine, on the death of his mother.

The silhouette of a mother who endured eighteen years watching her son abandoned to all the cares of the world…

“In the flesh she brought me to birth in this world; in her heart she brought me to birth in Your eternal life.”–St. Augustine

Let us find our single purpose in life as we travel through the silhouette of this mother and learn to apply the wisdom gained from the book of Proverbs 31:20:

“She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.”

For the month of September, our small church family will be distributing food to those in need within our community. Our public library now hosts an ongoing literacy program to help adults learn how to read.
