Mother’s Day Poem

I wanted to share with you all something special for Mother’s Day. A beautiful poem that really speaks to me about the way my mother was with all of her girls. The main idea that comes to my mind when I think of my mother is unconditional love. Not unlike the all embracing agape love that God has for His children. In showing me this kind of love my mother taught me about God’s love.

…Not just today on this Mother’s Day

But with each remembrance
Of the love she’s expressed
My thankfulness to the Lord I’ve professed

For my life began
In a warm and safe place
Then grew more secure in Mom’s tender embrace

When I was little
She taught me to crawl
Then to walk and run, and get up when I fall

Nurtured and cared for
She raised me to stand
Lifted, supported, by her loving hand

She believed in me
Inspired me to dream
Nothing was impossible for me, it seemed

It was her example
That pointed the way
To the life in Christ I know today

My mom, I love her
On this Mother’s Day
She’s the reason I’m taking this moment to pray

My mom, I love her
Let her know, dear Lord
Please bless her with the most abundant reward.
