Just One More...

Just one more poem in honour of Mother's Day! I have this one tacked onto my fridge as a visual reminder. May this always be my prayer...

A Mother's Prayer
By Helen M. Young

God, give me wisdom to see
That today is my day with my children.
That there is no unimportant moment in their lives.
May I know no other career is as precious.
No other work so rewarding.
No other task so urgent.
May I not defer it nor neglect it,
But, by Thy Spirit, accept it gladly, joyously,
And by Thy grace realize
That the time is short and my time is now,
For children won’t wait!

"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him."
---Psalm 127:3 (NLT)
