The hand that rocks the cradle
also makes the house a home.
It is the prayers of the mother
that keeps the family strong.
Mother rises early in the morning
and bathes her day in prayer.
She talks to God about her family
and places them in His care.
Mother communicates her love
in a thousand different ways.
When there’s a need she is there,
whether it is night or day.
Mother seasons life with love
and gives so much of herself.
God placed in her the best He had
and made her unlike anyone else.
When challenges come our way
and when trials block our view,
Mother kneels down beside her bed
and prays the family through.
Mother is God’s special creation.
She is a light shining in the dark,
Illuminating the path for her family
and pointing them toward God.
