Below is an attempt at a poem for you mothers out there! I think it's mostly from the perspective of a mommy with small kids. But I hope you're encouraged nonetheless. It's no light thing, motherhood. Today my prayer for you is that you would delight a little more in what you've been called to as a mom and seek to honor God in the joys and the challenges of it. You are not the only mom who yells at or gets frustrated with her kids and at the end of the day wonders if she's accomplished anything at all; you're in a REALLY BIG club with those of us who feel the same. The members of that club also all love their children so deeply they would do anything for them.
Mom, your work is beautiful. Your children are blessed to have you!
And now, a poem followed by some photos:
MOMEarly morningsLate nightsMake mealsMediate fightsRead storiesPick up toysNurture, protectSavor the joysTeach, correctCuddles, hugsWash clothesKill bugsLaugh at jokesThat are not funnyPinch penniesTo save some moneyWork hardBut don't forget,This is your greatestCalling yet.Persevere with hope;Keep it up!And let the Good LordFill your cup.
My daughter got me these lovely flowers yesterday, and this is the table I had to put them on. ha ha ha!
My kids, who make it all possible!
Whatever "it" is....
Happy Mother's Day!
