A Mother’s Love
© 2012 Suzanne Davis Harden All Rights Reserved.
Perhaps a billion stars
Rivers, lakes and trees
Teeming all with critters,
And billions more of these.
The song of our Creator
Is abundance it would seem
Until one sees a snowflake—
That each one is unique.
Perhaps a billion snowflakes
And no two are alike;
Each a tiny masterpiece
From microscopic sight.
Perhaps a billion mothers
But one alone is mine,
Unique and irreplaceable
In my heart and mind.
Embroidered like a snowflake
In the fabric of my soul;
In all true mother’s hearts
The love of God is ever told.
Heavenly Father, thank You for my precious mother and mother-in-law. Thank You for all mothers everywhere and for this day when we celebrate the gift of their lives and what they mean to us.
Help us never to take their precious lives for granted. Help us to show our mothers gratitude, honor, and respect for all they have done for us throughout our lives. For those whose mothers have passed away, please help them still to honor the memory of who their mothers were and to allow them to live on in their hearts through their love.
For those who are holding bitterness in their hearts toward their mothers please give them the grace to forgive as You have forgiven each one of us.
Help each of us to remember today that life is very short and no one knows when You will call us home.
Help us not to hold a grudge against any family member or any person but to love as You have loved us.
Help us to love those who gave us life and raised us; to celebrate their lives and let them know how much we care about them. May we never neglect them.
Bless all mothers everywhere today and fill them with joy.
In Jesus' holy name, amen.
"May the Lord richly bless both you and your children.
May you be blessed by the Lord who made heaven and earth." ~ Psalm 115:14-15 (NLT)
