A Mother’s Day Poem

Hello Friends,

Today is a special day! Do you know what today is? That’s right, it’s Mother’s Day! And on this day we are too pamper our mom’s in every way possible: give them breakfast in bed, cook for them, do the dishes, clean the house, do the laundry, go grocery shopping, and make sure that we keep our mom happy. (If you are like me, I let my older siblings do all these things for our mom while I just sat with her on the couch and either watched “The Lion King” or “Casper.”) If we can’t do these things, that is okay because these gifts don’t measure up to the ultimate gift that we can give our mom. The best give we can give her is the gift of love!

The Bible tells us that we are to honor our mother (and father) with love; and this love is defined by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the people of Corinth. Paul said that love never ends. When the breakfast is gone, love is still there. When the dishes are washed and the laundry folded, love is still there. When groceries are put away, love is still there. Love never ends and certainly doesn’t disappear. Love is the greatest gift we can give our mom on Mother’s Day because it will never go away! So on this Mother’s Day, give your mom a hug and tell her that you love her!

A Mother’s Day Poem: “M” is for the million things she gives me, “O” means the only mom I will ever love, “T” is for the tears she wipes away from my eyes, “H” is for her heart of purest gold, “E” is for her eyes with love-light shining, and “R” means right and right she’ll always be. Put them all together, and they spell “MOTHER,” a word that means the world to me.

Happy Mother’s Day to the all the mothers and mother-like figures! May you all receive the best gift of all, love!

Your Friend, Holy Spirit!
