Just in response to a few of the posts on my last little blog.
God is my mother.
"Oh how I would have gathered you like a mother hen gathers her chicks"
"I have stilled myself like a weaned child in your arms"
We limit God by only thinking of him as Father, He's bigger than that. Although I still find myself using the masculine pronoun to describe Him!
I have felt him hold me like a mother, listen to me like a mother, overlook my weaknesses like a mother, feed me like a mother, nurse me like a mother, carry me like a mother.
He/She has as much feminine as masculine, and I love Him for that. I will probably always use the masculine, that is how I am conditioned but I don't care about that.
Everything I lost in the death of my mother, I found in Him!
