A Mother's Prayer

May God grant you peace
in the midst of a storm.
May God give you strength even
when you’re forlorn.
May you answer the door when
Jesus comes knocking.
May wisdom guide when
your mouth is talking.
May discretion protect you
and keep you pure.
May you never stumble
or fall for a lure.
May your heart remain humble
to the very end.
May uprightness and truth
be what you defend.
May the world not ensnare
or change who you are.
May the light that's within you
shine like the stars.
May angels surround you
body, spirit, mind.
May favor and peace be yours to find.
May rejection and pain
never reach you.
May your spirit grow bold
for what you’re called to. 
As you rest in God’s care I will rest, too.
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you.

Happy Mother's Day to all my Mommy friends out there.  And a very special thank you to my own Mom for putting up with me all these years.

Here's the song that the prayer above came from.  Make sure you have tissue close by!
