A Mother’s Day Poem


In honor of Mother’s Day I am sharing this poem with you. I was given this poem on a Mother’s Day a few years back by an older lady in our church with the sweetest note attached. Since then I have shared it with others and turn back to it on days when I have felt  discouragement as a mother. Hopefully you are encouraged by it as well!

A woman once fretted over the usefulness


of her life. She feared she was wasting


her potential being a devoted wife and mother.


She wondered if the time and energy she invested


in her husband and children would make a difference.




At times she got discouraged because so


much of what she did seemed to go


unnoticed and unappreciated. “Is it worth it?”


she often wondered. “Is there something better


that I could be doing with my time?”




It was during these moments of questioning


that she heard the still, small voice


of her Heavenly Father speak to her heart:


“You are a wife and mother because that is


what I have called you to be. Much of what you do


is hidden from the public eye. But I notice.


Most of what you do is done without remuneration.


But I am your reward. Your husband cannot be the man


I have called him to be without your support. Your


influence upon him is greater than you think and


more powerful than you will ever know. I bless him


through your service and honor him through your love.


Your children are precious to Me. Even more


precious than they are to you. I have entrusted


them to your care to raise them for Me. What you


invest in them is an offering to Me.




You may never be in the public spotlight.


But your obedience shines as a bright light


before Me. Continue on. Remember


you are My servant. Do all to please Me.
