A Tribute To Mother
by Shenica Graham

When others turned their heads to laugh, or smirk, or wink, or hurry past…
Only mother’s hand was still, healing hurt and curing ill.
When sunshine left and clouds came near, companions seemed to dispappear.
Then I alone went searching, and mother could be found.

And only God could make you, Mother, blessed as you are today…
And put you in this place to teach me how to walk this narrow way.

If others have forsaken me, I can be reminded…
That God above is merciful. His heart is joy and kindness.

To show His love above all others,
He gave me you, to be mother.

Devotional Reading: I Samuel:27:-28

27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: 28 Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there. I Samuel 1:27-28 KJV
