My life is but a weaving between the Lord and me!

Happy Mother’s Day

May I share a quote from Ophra Winfrey as she writes about one of the most influential women in her life:

“I’ve learned to rely on the strength I inherited from all those who came before me- the grandmothers, sisters, aunts and brothers who were tested with unimaginable hardships and still survived. “I go forth alone, and stand as ten thousand”   Maya Angelo proclaimed in her poem “Our Grandmothers,” ”When I move through the world, I bring all my history with me-all the people who paved the way for me are part of who I am.”

We are called to His Good purpose 10.4.15

God bless as we celebrate all the mother’s, grandmother’s and women who have given, loved and nurtured from their heart to yours ~

Mama’s Bible
by Zoey

I found my mama’s bible

in the things of hers
I went through today.

The bookmarked pages hold
the place where
God had touched her
heart as she
read His word that day.

And in my heart I can hear
Mama telling me:
“Keep God’s words close,
pray for His guidance,
don’t lose faith,
He will always
keep you in His care.”

There is no stronger force
than a mama’s prayers to
the throne of God.

And I believe,
No foe can conquer
No trial defeat
No evil befall against
His children- big or small.

“For Thy will be done,

on earth
as in Heaven”,

my heart does

hear my mama pray,
as she marked
another page in her bible
where God touched
her heart that day.

  1. Zoey, your poignant poem brought a tear to my eye as I imagined my children seeing what I’ve underlined and circled in my Bibles through the years.
