As you know I am no speaker But I just felt it in my hart to bring you this devotional today so I hope I make it you will bare with me First since this is Mother's day I would like to tell a little true story. As a child My Mother passed on to heaven When I was 6 years old. There was 4 of us I was the oldest, we were drug from one relative to another, then our Dad married again, we weren't much better off, We never knew what it was to have the teachings of God, but I am sure most of you do still have your mothers Now a poem By George Bancroft Griffith If you have a gray haired Mother in the old home far away Set you down and write the letter You put off from day to day Don't wait until her waning steps reach heaven's pearly gates But show her that you think of her Before it is to late I you have a tender message, or loving word to say Don't wait till you forget it But whisper it today Who knows what bitter memories may haunt you if you wait? So make your loved one happy Before it is too late The tender word unspoken The letter never sent The long forgotten message The wealth of love unspent For these same harts are breaking For there some loved ones wait; Show them that you care for them Before it is to late
Bow your heads in prayer Dear God we thank thee that thy holy hand has endured throughout the ages as a guide for life's journey. Grant that parents and Children everywhere will rely on thy precepts to light the way for themselves and their loved ones, In our savior's name, amen Return to Mother's Devotional
