ANIMAL PHOTO OF THE DAY - A Comforting Mom in the Style of the Heavenly Father/Mother

In many instances our precious doggies more nearly reflect God's "mothering" than humans do!!! They seldom use baby sitters, don't run off to play bridge, play golf, go shopping or spend hours on the phone or watching television!!

This little lady is fully occupied as a dedicated mother. However, she may do a bit of knitting as we can see from the picture.

This picture reminds me of how God "mothers" us as this favorite hymn proclaims:

Like as a mother, God comforteth His children;
Comfort is calm, that bids all tumult cease;
Comfort is hope and courage for endeavor,
Comfort is love, whose home abides in peace.

Love is true solace and giveth joy for sorrow,
—O, in that light, all earthly loss is gain;
Joy must endure, Love’s giving is forever;
Life is of God, whose radiance cannot wane.

O holy presence, that stills all our demanding,
O love of God, that needs but to be known!
Heaven is at hand, when thy pure touch persuades us,
Comfort of God, that seeks and finds His own.
(Christian Science Hymnal p 174)

Thanks for being a precious little mother. I love your family!!
