St. Teresa of Los Andes
Thank goodness Christ cleared up that 'born again' thing. The thought of going through labor again makes most moms shiver! But thinking about birth makes me realize more fully what Christ was speaking of. Before birth we are comfortable, warm, completely dependent, and reactionary. After birth starts our journey of independence, knowledge, and sometimes discomfort. It's a completely different life.
One more thing: Our lives as moms are completely different than when we didn't have children. People can see the change immediately. Can they also see the difference between living a life in the Spirit and not?
Prayer: Dear Lord, fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I may begin each day renewed and one day see the Kingdom of God. St. Teresa, pray for me. Amen.
