Motherhood Is A Calling
How many moms agree with me that motherhood is a calling from God? It’s a privilege I believe that every mom embraces with all her heart. Some make this journey look so easy while many of us struggle. Motherhood takes a life time to make its perfection. Sometimes, even at the end of a mother’s life, she has her fair share of regrets and wishes of ‘ it could be better ifs ‘.
Today, I am honoring Lacey Buchanan for what a dedicated mom she is. The first time I knew Lacey was from a you tube video that appeared in 2012. Although heart warming, it was at the same time, heart breaking. A mom’s dream for her baby crushed with the birth of her precious baby with his eyes and mouth cleft. But her determination to love and raise Christian was totally admirable. She taught me what the love of a mother could do, absolutely everything that her heart determined would do!
Through the recent years, I started to search for update on Christian’s news. It was a privilege to know both Lacey and her boys on their Facebook page.
Christian who recently turned 4, was a healthy and happy boy. Christian has an adorable younger brother, Chandler. This month, Christian and Lacey got featured on the front page of the local newspaper called THE TENNESSEAN where they live. The article was an excellent presentation of Christian’s story.

A Reminder Of God’s Love
This reminds me of God’s love for His beloved people simply because God’s love sees beyond our limitations. It is through knowing and be known by Him that we truly understand what love is. The Bible in 1 John 4:10, 1 John 4:18 – 19 says:
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us.”
There is no fear in love. This is because through perfect love we find perfect trust through the eyes of a child and it is exactly how one approaches and understand the things of the Kingdom of God.
The love of God brings out the best in us. Lacey is able to love Christian the way she does, stamps out of her love for God. She is a wonderful daughter of the Almighty. Her testimony is a great example of God’s presence in her life. She chooses to raise her children in the love of Her beloved God that I’m privileged to share with you. With everything that a mother has to go through to raise her children, I have no doubt, motherhood is absolutely a calling from God.
