Mary watched people turn against her son. She could not defend her child. She must have heard of Judas’ betrayal, Simon’s denial, and the disciples’ abandonment. What a pain!

When I realized joining the military was something, my son wanted for his own life, I began to relax and God was then able to work on my heart. It was revealed to me in my time with God that I was perhaps praying against God’s will for my son’s life.

Some may argue that my attempts are futile as she cannot understand what I am saying. However does that stop parents from talking to their babies?

I think a lot of moms have been in my shoes. Let’s be honest. There was a time you had to or there will be a time you will have to take your child to the bathroom while you do number 2…except you are Hollywood type of rich or have a 24/7 nanny, family assistance, and husband services.
