A call to motherhood which confounds the wise,
which confounds the mentality of Western Society.
I too was surprised to discover
life and joy in the ordinary.
Years ago, a mother to four little ones I was worried
Was I pregnant yet again?
Suddenly the divine pierced through my cloud of conflicting emotions,
As a mystical blanket of peace
wrapped around me.
A burst of inner Light,
I was beaming, stifling laughter
I heard words within,
In my heart-
“This is you call.
This is your vocation.
This is your witness to the world.”
Confusion. I was incredulous and stuttered,
“People don’t understand,
They think we are irresponsible
I look foolish.”
A whispered answer,
“You will be a witness to
Life and Joy.
and I will be with you.”
A Call to Mother a Large Family
That was it for me,
