Poem, “For Mother’s Day”

For all the mothers who ….. as the last lines of this prayer speak of bringing a certain vision to life… I thought that even though you may not necessarily be religious or even a mother, most of us are spiritual in some way… and this prayer spoke of that …..that piece that i feel is in all of us….so for all …and especially for Mother’s …today….

I begin with a prayer of gratitude

for all that is holy in my life.

God needs no words, no language,

no semantics and no services.

but I need them.

through prayer, I can sense my inner strength,

my inner purpose,

my inner joy, my capacity to love.

as I reach upward in prayer,

i sense these qualities in my Creator

To love God is to love each other,

to work to make our lives better.

To love God is to love the world God created

and to work to perfect it.

To love God is to love dreams of peace and joy

that illumine all of us,

and to bring that vision to life.

I know this could apply to more than mothers, but I thought it a nice prayer for Mother’s day, and to show appreciation to all you ladies who work hard to spread love and hope and strength in your loved ones, and just a little something to honor you today because you all do your best to bring to life, your visions of a better world.  Wishing you love today and everyday.
