God being described as Mother or Father is quite apt, as God is the source of all life, the Great Parent known by many names. And on a day like Mothers’ Day, we have the added opportunity to look to those mothers and motherly figures in our lives with a renewed sense of appreciation for the Divine Light that shines from their every wondrous detail. Our moms are our first and often best example of what and who God is: what the essence of Life is. Often overlooked because their prowess and support are as expansive as the earth, our mothers channel a grand power that makes that of warmongers pale in comparison, the power of the very connecting force of the cosmos, love itself, support, care, kindness, wisdom, and the eternity of life. Our moms express the greatest uses of the universe and the point of all life: to live in caring community, to learn, to grow together, to find peace, and to thrive in the light of love.
