BE PROUD OF YOUR CALLING!
Dear mother in the home, beloved of the Lord,
Your power as a mother cannot be ignored,
You are the heart and the queen of your home,
Making it a haven so your children won't roam.
As you nurture and teach your children each day,
Discipline, train, and watch over their play,
May your heart fill with joy and overflow with love
That God gave you these “gifts” from heaven above.
Each precious child is a “blessing” from the Lord,
No longer will you ever have time to be bored!
You have the greatest career in all of the land
As you teach your children to heed God's command.
Lift up your head; be proud of your calling,
It’s an eternal work, totally enthralling!
I know you often feel tired and worn,
But claim God's promise, His truth He has sworn.
"The joy of the Lord is your strength," God has stated
Whatever He’s promised cannot be negated!
As you shine with His joy, you'll be a beacon to all
That embracing God’s children is His will and call.
Don't be intimidated by those who ignore God's way,
Who limit their children and leave them each day,
As you receive God's “rewards” and at home with them stay
You’ll be a light to save others from going astray.
Your sweet, gentle spirit is precious in God's sight,
As you serve in your home with all of your might
You reveal the spirit of Jesus your King
Who showed by example to serve in everything.
May God bless you and strengthen you each new morn,
May you know His faithfulness with each new dawn,
May God's presence be with you in a mighty measure
As you train your “arrows” for God's purpose and pleasure.
