Could any words on earth describe a mother's special part?
A family needs a mother like a body needs a heart!
A child knows instinctively her love is like no other,
For there’s unfailing comfort in the heart-love of a mother.
That's why I always ran to you with eyes that brimmed with tears--
I knew your gentle strength would soothe away my greatest fears.
In spite of all my questions, you would never scold or chide;
And when I needed comforting, your arms were open wide.
Your life was like a portrait painted by God's loving hand--
A picture of Himself that even I could understand!
For, Mother, in your faithful love, so constant and so sure,
I learned the peace of resting in God's loving arms secure.
Your joy in serving God by meeting countless petty needs
Inspired me to trust God's will and follow where He leads.
I often count my blessings, listing one and then another;
Among the ones I count most dear is this--that you're my mother!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Strength and honor are her clothing: and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates. Proverbs 31:25-31
