The barren has borne seven,
but she who has many children is forlorn.
~ 1 Samuel 2:5, RSV Holy Bible
Growing up, I found that my Godmother had such a powerful effect on me. She, a woman of faith, smiled at me and she listened to me, and that was the love that I needed. She was a good Godmother.
Likewise, religious sisters like Sister Tracey and Sister Julia of the Daughters of St. Paul offer such wonderful kindness and care, loving and serving as the Lord loves and serves. Who would not want such a Godmother?
