|My Mother's Day Roses!|
Carla Stewart shared in her interview the many difficulties she has faced within her family. As mothers, we always want the best for our children, just as God wants the best for us. But we have free will. So it doesn't always work out that way. We make bad choices. Our kids make lousy choices sometimes. And we grieve the one who created us to begin with.
As we celebrate Mother's Day, 2012, may all the mothers who read this be blessed and may God help each and every one to overcome the obstacles to mothering that have been put in her way!
HERE is a gift from Teresa Mathews for your Mother's Day:
A Mother’s Prayer
Dear Lord help me to be
a Mother that is led by Thee.
One that never has a care
Even when I could, pull out my hair
One that loves my kids, never ending
Even when for lego’s it seems I’m always spending
Picking up toys, washing all the clothes
Help me Lord before my mind goes.
Cooking food and mopping the floor
Here I go again to the store.
Mom! Mom! I need new clothes
Oh well that’s the way the money goes!
Lord if only I could have a minute alone
I promise I would not talk on the phone.
Mom! Mom! He hit me on the head!
Help me Lord why couldn’t I have stayed in bed????
Children screaming at each other
What was the reason I wanted to be a Mother?
Mommy I love you, Can I have a kiss?
These are the times I’m going to miss.
My little boys are growing up way too fast,
Lord help me to show them the right path.
Listening to your voice telling them the way
Lord help my boys to follow you everyday.
Let them give you all of their heart
And from your way let them never part.
Thank you Lord for allowing me to be
A mother that is led by Thee.
