Motherhood: Partnership with God's Creative Process

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139: 13-14

Before anything existed you knew us, called us by name.
From nothing you formed us, knit us together
deep inside our mother’s womb.

Created in your image,
fashioned in your likeness;
we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Your eyes search the universe and you call it good,
but nothing compares to your sons
and your daughters.

We are the crown of all creation;
the ones in whom you
take great delight.

Partners in creation, you entrust us with your children;
precious ones molded by your very hands
and Kingdom-purposed.

May we as mothers, revel in this miraculous deed;
marvel at the sight of your great work,
recognize your image
in their faces.

Today, and every day, may we
honor and esteem the very hands
that raised and nurtured us.

Happy Mother’s Day



  1. Hi Dawn,
