This Sort of Love

"1611 KJV. Exodus 2:3-10
[3]And when shee could not longer hide him, she tooke for him an arke of bul-rushes, and daubed it with slime, and with pitch, and put the childe therein, and shee layd it in the flags by the riuers brinke.
[4]And his sister stood afarre off, to wit what would be done to him.
[5]¶ And the daughter of Pharaoh came downe to wash her selfe at the riuer, and her maydens walked along by the riuer side: and when shee saw the arke among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
[6]And when she had opened it, she saw the childe: and beholde, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrewes children.
[7]Then said his sister to Pharaohs daughter, Shall I goe, and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew-women, that she may nurse the childe for thee?
[8]And Pharaohs daughter said to her, Goe: And the mayd went and called the childs mother.
[9]And Pharaohs daughter said vnto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will giue thee thy wages. And the woman tooke the childe, and nursed it.
[10]And the childe grew, and shee brought him vnto Pharaohs daughter, and he became her sonne. And she called his name Moses: And she said, Because I drew him out of the water."

     This sort of love . . the love where a mother selflessly does what she must to keep her child safe. . .
    This strong devoted mother who gave her son away twice in order to keep him alive and safe . .
   This is one amazing Mama!!
