Mother's Blessing

This past weekend my mom threw a "Mother's Blessing" for Jillian and I. It was part Mother's Blessing and part typical Baby Shower... but totally a blessing!

Here's what a Christian Mother's Blessing (Blessing Way) can look like. The activities of a Blessing Way center around preparing the mother for labor, celebrating the impending birth, and offering spiritual support.

Everyone was inform that no horror birth stories were allowed only uplifting and encouraging words for the new mom.

The day started with a lovely BRUNCH with everything you could imagine... quiche, bagels, fruit, hummus, muffins, toast, etc...

Then my mom gave an explaination of BIBLICAL CHILDBIRTH.

Our mother's and grandmothers surrounded us with a Heritage BLESSING & PRAYER .

Then as we opened GIFTS while people strung BIRTH BEADS which give the mother strength and focus during labor and remind her of all the family and friends that are praying and supporting her. It is a powerful and tangible way to show the love and support that surrounds the mother.

At the end of the day there was a SIGN-UP that people joined to be part of the labor prayer chain and bringing meals after the baby is born.
