My Children's Mother

    My Children's Mother

    Show me Lord,
              how to take care of my children’s mother.
    She is not doing so well today.
    There is no heat in her home, and her mind wants to play.

    Speak to me, Lord.

    Tell me how to take care of my children’s mother

    She knows she could be doing better.

    Infect her mind with fruitful thoughts, ones that drive despair away


    Touch my heart, Lord

                For strength in caring for my children’s mother

    She’s reaching for a guiding hand.

    Let me feel her pain, lead me to where her heart is laid


    Let my heart bleed, Dear Lord    

    I humbly need your hand

    To guide me and to strengthen me

                To take care of my children’s mother


    Give me the words to say, Dear Lord

    I know I could do better

    To show her she’s loved wherever she goes

                She’ll always be my children’s mother


    Open my eyes, Dear Lord

    Blind me with your glory

    Fill my life with your warmth and joy

                Help me to take care of my children’s mother

    Oh I felt the desparation and need. I remembered a few days when that was me. I wanted people to smile when they looked at me, I wanted to see beauty and color and hugs and gentleness. I wanted soothing music and simple food. A prayer I swear is coming your way if for nothing else, for her to have a good day and remmber how to play. God bless...Write on...



    The blessing is knowing that someone else has walked this path before. Thank you so much. I will Write On!

    with that much intended love, god will surely see, and hold yours high above, a shining example of prayerful art, how all good prayers should be!



    Thank you, Rouge. I believe He does see and hear. You may note that the tone morphed from despair to hope.

    Yes, a very beautiful work/prayer/poem you've written. In one's closet with the door closed .. prayers are answered with the tiniest mustard seed of faith. Great write.



    The process of meditating/praying is never complete for me unless I write it, read it, and release it from my soul. And, it's nice to wake to your kind words! ;)

    Thanks for reading :)
