A Mother's Covenant

A Mother’s covenant with her creator
Spoken in depths of breathless silence
Bids her bear and nurture fruits
Each with free will and a given purpose
Assuring the existence of our race
Each comes with a gift to benefit the whole
Each a member of God’s body here below
His spirit imparted; a blessing, each one is
Sent to a world groaning, longing for peace

Mothers are special; vessels of His providence
Honor for self-sacrifice; honor for their pan
A Mother by natural birth or by an adoption
Glory in your humble station
Teach the basic truths
Expose the layers of lies 
Shed the meaningless disguise
Realize the power within your grasp
Help make our world a better place.

HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!

    this is about the very best one I have seen. Partly because it was not so personal that it excluded most mothers other than your own. It covers the whole spectrum of them!!
