– A privilege, a divine co-labouring, a selfless service, requires stamina, resilience and eyes full of dreams.

It is the expression of the divine DNA, the giving of ones self, regardless of agony or heartbreak, investing in one’s own offspring with no guarantee of a return of affections or appreciation.

Parenthood is an act of faith.  To procreate is to collaborate with the divine commission in creating the miracle of new life.


– A joyous weighty responsibility of nurturing, instructing, admonishing and mentoring.

– A chapter of pages, emerging unique designs with laughter and deep pleasure. A fulfilment.

– A priceless treasure of love and joy that for some lasts heartbreakingly but a few hours or a day, others for a lifetime. Both produce blissful ecstasy and/or crushing unfathomable grief etched upon ones heart, forever.

The mystery of this distinguished service, by its very act of outpouring, claims respect and honour.  It is to be revered and cherished.

This reflection is but a glimpse into the faintly recognized heaven birthed yet mortal office of parenthood.

    That was truly beautiful.. Thank you.
    I’m often awed by the joy, sacred honour and responsibility of parenthood these days.
    It blows my mind, and warms my heart (and sometimes terrifies me a little if we’re being honest) that God entrusts us with something so precious as guiding and nurturing one of His beloved. 🙂
