As Mothers Standing Strong, we understand that the muscle behind our strength is, love. Real, unconditional love.

Hi! I hope your day has been good thus far. And if you are weary, I hope rest and renewal are on the way!

In the final post of Mothers Standing Strong, it seems fitting to point out that our connection to heaven makes it possible for us to be powerful beyond reason, while, and because, we are yet frail and oh, so human! “It is God that girdeth me with strength and maketh my way perfect.” Psalms 18:32

“The Lord is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler and the horn of my salvation and my high tower.” Psalms 18:1-2

All our grit and fire exists because, when we are truly loving ourselves and others, we are powerful! And when we behave as loving agents, we are upheld and safe in God’s territory!

Of course we can try to be our best woman/wife/mother/sister/friend self without feeling loved and being loving. But we all know how that turns out! And sheesh, running on empty makes life really, really hard!

So, what can we do to be in His love, with access to His power and protection?

We fill ourselves with God’s love and compassion, through daily habits of spiritual self-care; we ask for God’s help to be with us, every second of every day!

We spend time with mature, loving people who tell us the truth, and help us learn to tell the truth about ourselves.

We own our mistakes, make amends and strive to do better. Again and again.

We practice interacting with our family members in a spirit of meekness.

We are teachable!

We commit to a path of on-going personal progression.

We create an uplifting environment at home, one that constantly reminds us of our goal to be kind, gentle, respectful, firm and loving.

We remember that the goal of connection is paramount, and worth our greatest efforts, as we see evidences all around of many who are disconnected and suffering.

Just like soap and water disorganize and flush away a virus, we remember that God’s love can help us break-up and wash away old, unhealthy, thoughts and beliefs.

With Him, we find our strength.

In Him, we find protection.

With His love in our hearts, we love others truly.

We know who we are. We know what we are here to do. We exert our faith. We are acting as agents. We are upheld, protected and motivated by love.

You, my friend, are a Mother Standing Strong, and you are needed.

You are a heroically making all the difference for those in your circle of influence; those who sit around your proverbial hearth, growing in your light and love. Does it get any more powerful and profound than that?

I don’t think so!

My love to you, today and always,

The mission of Lioness at the Door is to uplift, strengthen and encourage women of all ages to magnify health, hope and happiness at home. We do so boldly, with humility and gratitude for the opportunity.

P. S. Isn’t the photo in this post one of the most stunning wedding pictures of all time?! Nice shot Rachel Higgins and thank you Heidi and David Souza for sharing the love!

P. P. S. Please download and print the beautiful scripture and floral pictures, made by graphic designer Judy Sorenson, on our free download page! I think a collection of these would be beautiful, printed, framed and hung in a collage! Hmm, what a fun project for some young girl…
