This Mother’s Day, the first four lines of this poem echoed in my heart and invited me to arrange this banquet of words together.
Today, I offer you this gift from my heart to yours.
May you encounter the Spirit in between these lines and find God’s Comfort and Care no matter where you are.
Because of Grace,
You are beyond gender,
physical shape, and full of wonder.
You shaped us with Love
out of water and earth,
Loving us through Grace,
to Your breath, we surrender.
Nursing our needs
in the shelter of Your wings,
Cradling away fear,
in Your arms of endless Peace.
in You there is no death,
Your breath in us is everlasting,
life of abundance beyond enduring.
the Word made flesh.
Taking our form
Healing our pain.
beyond money and wealth.
Nurturing us with goodness beyond all else.
