A Beautiful Life
by Keith W. Currie
Mother’s Day, 2013
A beautiful life of nurture and care
Is lived out by mothers everywhere;
For they reflect God, His goodness and grace.
How often He’s seen in a young mother’s face.
A beautiful life that lays down her own
Is the mother who makes her dwelling a home,
A place where there’s comfort and love all around.
To raise up her child, she lays her life down.
A beautiful life, this mother of joy,
Who trains up her son, her mischievous boy,
And guides him to Father, while dreading the day
Her boys becomes man and must move away.
A beautiful life, this dutiful mom
Who raises her daughter with poise and aplomb,
Who sows seeds of love and self sacrifice
So her daughter will live a beautiful life.
