A forward to me from my Uncle Bud in Tennessee; for Mothers Day:
She Will Be Called Blessed
By Elizabeth de Gravelles
Based on Proverbs 31:10 - 31

Her strength and her dignity clothe her with beauty,
In works of her hands, she excels.
A heart of compassion she turns to the needy,
In service to others, she gives of herself.
She rises each morning to see to her household;
She looks toward the future with joy.
She teaches her children true lessons of kindness;
And shares with them wisdom the world can't destroy.
She will be called blessed,
By her sons and her daughters;
Precious to the the Father
Are those who seek His ways.
She will be called blessed,
Held above every other;
Blessed is the mother
Who turns to God in praise
When you read it the first time, I hope that you thought of your mother or some other significant person in your life. Read it the second time, and remember that this is what God thinks of you (whether you are a mom or not!).
