I posted this on my Instagram story last week.
And I loved the question someone sent in reply: “Do you suppose a mother’s faith offers such protection to her children?”
I stopped in my tracks because isn’t that a beautiful thought?
I do believe a mother’s faith (and a father’s too), and love, and wrestle in prayer can offer that protection as Mother Nature does.
Layer upon layer of armor to combat what comes their way as they begin to build their own foundations.
I also believe, to take it one step further, that there are angels who can also help build those layers. Angels who have gone before. I think of that every time we quote “the impossible” from my Grandma Hazel, or “if a person practices love, then everything else takes care of itself,” from my Grandpa Dean.
As those lines run through their hearts from those “angels” (and many others) who have gone before, I hope those “layers” will add to the ones Dave and I are trying to wrap them with.
We can learn so much from Mother Nature.
