when I only knew,
mothering a son, a woman told me:
Haven't you heard the expression, "Have a son 'til he gets a wife. Have a daughter all of her life?"
Well, this gave me pause for thought.
How could I process this?
Twenty years later,
I am here.
I can clearly see....
God has a purpose and a design for each of us,
and old fashioned a bit or a lot, that I am,
God has a purpose or a plan, for each of us,
partly contingent on if we are to be woman or man.
I thought there could be none closer, than mother to son,
but then in this life, God granted
that I daughter I won♡
Honored are you mothers
who get to raise a woman for Him,
I pray every step of service, to Him you GIVE
How you love her,
How you teach her,
What you teach, in word or deed,
This will effect her for decades to come,
And quite possibly, effect your family
for generations to come,
Never fail to treat her as the gift that she is,
Teach her to know that she is ENOUGH as she is,
As long as to Christ, she seeks her life to GIVE,
No man shall ever determine her worth,
She has been exquisite and unique,
A PRESENT since birth,
Your friend forever,
To share all that God grants,
Life's lovely milestones,
Self righteous rants,
You are always in her corner,
And hopefully, she in yours
Because she is your daughter,
God is your judge,
The creator of all,
The giver of this gift,
Precious above all,
To be mother of a daughter,
Being your divine and glorious CALL.
God bless you, and help you, in your mothering,
Grandma Mary Martha 💖
