A Mother’s Prayer
Dear Lord, it’s such a hectic day
With little time to stop and pray,
For life’s been anything but calm
Since you called me to be a mom.
Running errands, matching socks
Building dreams with building blocks
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose.
Fitting lids on bottled bugs
Wiping tears and giving hugs.
A stack of last week’s mail to read
So where’s the quiet time I need?
Yet when I steal a minute, Lord,
Just at the sink or ironing board
To ask the blessings of Your grace
I see then, in my small one’s face
That you have blessed me all the while
And I stop to kiss that precious smile.
