Thank God for Mothers

What is perfect love?  Outside of our God, 
does it really exist in the world?   

Perfect love is not easy, it's not earned 
It requires sacrifices of self

For thousands of years, the closest human example of 
perfect love was seen in the face of virtually every mother as 
she gazed into the face of her newborn child.

As God intends it, the love of a mother for her children is as close as 
we get to perfect love this side of heaven.

Mothers are supposed to love their children with a love beyond measure. 
We don't have to earn it and we rarely deserve it.

Mothers are the face of perfect human love.

Happy Mother's Day from Missouri Right to Life!

2. Call Majority Floor Leader, Mike Kehoe (573-751-2076)
