Happy Mother's Day

To the many mothers, young and old, alive and passed on, who are such an example to me! I love these songs and so this is my tribute to all of you! {I tried to embed the songs themselves but failed miserably}

A Mother's Prayer

I know you're listening

As I lay me down to sleep

It's not for me, I ask

But my children's souls to keep

It seems the world is going crazy

And though I need to do my share

Could you please, take them under wing

Watch over them especially

Keeping them safe from everything

This is a mother's prayer

I know you're listening

In the silence of this night

The news is blistering

But I hold on to your light

And though there's darkness all around us

By my faith, I know you're there

Give me the strength to lead the way

Send me the words I need to say

Use me to guide them day by day

This is a mother's prayer

I know, I can't do this by myself

I thank you for your help

I know you're listening

So I know, I'm not alone

I feel you here with me

As we all face the unknown

Could you return us to your garden

Where no one's hurt and no one's scared

Free us from pride and bitterness

Keep us so close we won't forget

Teach us to love as you love

This is a mother's prayer

Teach us to love as you love

This is a mother's prayer.


A mother's eyes reflect the love of heaven,

A love born long before this life began.

A love which grows each day, which will not fade away.

A love inspired by Heavenly Fathers plan.

A mother's hands reflect a life of service,

A life of sacrifice for those she loves.

And through her living hands, she shapes the soul of man,

Prepares for eternal life above.

A mother's words teach children righteous living,

And her example leads them to the light.

She speaks the words of truth, that guide their tender youth,

And point the course they take throughout their life.

A mother's life reflects itself in our life,

Her ways of living are engrained in ours.

And through the change in years, and days of joy and tears.

Her love will lead us on,

Her words will point the course,

Her hands will lift us up,

To God.
