Deep Love

Dear Children,

A police recruit was once asked during his exam, ”What would you do if had to arrest your own mother?”

He said, ”I would call for backup.”

That recruit speaks of the type of Mother I had in Beverly Rae Jensen. My Mom was tough, fair, and loving. If I had to select one word to describe her it would be loving. The love Beverly passed along was that of Christ Jesus.

In John 13:34-35, Jesus says, ’Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another.'  When we love another more than we even love our self we enter into the maternal love of our Lord. This deep, deep love of Jesus is the only power that can nurture us to the core.

Prayer: For Mothers, and for John 13:34-35 love. 

Ed Edwards and the band played this song at my mother Beverly’s funeral on November 9, 2015.

May we each be held in the nurturing maternal love of God.

Still in one peace,

David J. Jensen
