Supera Matris? What does that mean?

In my former Blog, I referred to myself as “Supera Matris.” You may wonder why called myself “Supera Matris.” Or you might be a total geek like me and know.  “Supera Matris” is a somewhat of a way of saying “Super Mom” in Latin.  Though that term usually refers to the “top mom” or the “superior mom” when compared to other moms, this is not how I view the term.

As for the answer to why I am a self-proclaimed super mom…  Life is hard — it downright smells like night soil sometimes — but I find so much peace in knowing that God is there for me.

Any way… I am Super simply because

20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

I have surrendered my whole life to God.  I have given my husband, my children and my everyday living to Him.  What does that mean?  Simply I take no credit for my successes and hold no regrets for my failures knowing that they teach me something worth knowing and make me better in the long run.  I am not perfect except through Christ’s perfection.  I make so many mistakes — daily even — and some lessons are hard for me to get the first time; but I am a better person every new day.  Aren’t you?

Oh yeah, and just a warning: Not only am I incapable of writing short stuff but also my love for God pours out of me because it is who I am.  I mean no offense.  I am speaking from my life and my experiences.  If that is not your life or your experience, then I still hope you get something positive from my blog anyway.

With Love and Sincerity,
Maggie A. ‘Spoon
Super Momma
