Happy Mother's Day


After a day of being honored, I feel we may need a little exhorting to bring us back to earth:) This morning at church we received a poem, which I found to be inspirational and helpful in giving direction for this blessing we call Motherhood.

Talk To Me- My Mother

Talk to me- my mother,
Tell me all the things you know;
So when I grow to be older,
My Father's love will show.

Talk to me- my mother,
Tell me how the world was made,
So when I look about the land
I'll know whose plan was laid.

Talk to me - my mother,
Read me Bible tales of old,
They will be example
Of The Way, as they are told.

Talk to me - my mother,
Hold me close and give me of
The tender care you know so well,
That truly shows God's love.

Talk to me - my mother,
Tell me why you think and feel
His plan is so important
To build a life that's real!

Talk to me - my mother,
Show me how to live a life,
That pleases God in all I do -
And comforts those in strife.

Talk to me - my mother,
Share ideas of how to be
The person in the Christian life
Who God says, "Pleases me."

Talk to me - my mother,
Tell me all the things you know;
So when I grow to be older,
My Father's love will show.

I pray that we all take seriously the task God has entrusted to us - to bring our children up in the way of the Lord. Blessings, fellow mothers, as you pick up the task every morning.
