Being a mother is a very important role that the Lord chooses to give to many women, and those whom the Lord blesses to be mothers should take the responsibility seriously. Mothers have a unique and crucial role in the lives of their children and the love, care, nurture, and encouragement a mother gives should never cease.
Today’s song lyrics are from a child’s perspective and we couldn’t have said it better.
Maybe I'll never know the love it takes
To make me a happy home that's warm and safe
And maybe I'll never see how you pray for my every need
And wonder what more you could do for me
But when you walk by my side, read me stories at night
And teach me to trust in God's love; you give me a hug, maybe two
And you say, "I love you", then I think you're doing enough.
Maybe you wonder if you're teaching me every good thing that I can someday be
But all that I know of faith, and of kindness and love and strength
I've learned just by watching you every day.
Someday, I'll have a home, a family; and I'll love them just as much as you love me.
Then maybe you'll finally see you have given enough for me;
A gift that will last through eternity.
So when you stay by my side, hear my stories at night
And teach me to trust in God's love. You give me a hug, maybe two,
And you say, "I love you", then I think you're more than enough
And I'm blessed every step by your love!
Take a few minutes and thank God for all the special women in your life! If you are a woman, strive to be a Proverbs 31 Woman!
