Sabbath Rest – A Mother’s Prayer

It was a lovely Mother’s Day weekend – despite some perfectly awful weather here in Ohio!! By the end of the weekend I’d seen all of the kids and grands, and actually hugged most of them!  The Ohio Gang (minus Herbert and Ellie B who couldn’t make it) gathered on Saturday night

and Sunday morning brought a lovely FaceTime call from the Texans!

By the end of Sunday we’d connected with Herbert and Ellie too, so the family circle was complete.
So as we wrap up Mother’s Day 2021 I still come back to this lovely lullaby –

I may be long past holding my own little ones in my arms, but I’m never past praying for them and their little (and not so little) ones.

You’ll travel where my arms won’t reach
As the road will rise to lead your feet
On a journey of your own.
May my mistakes not hinder you
But His grace remain and guide you through;
This is my prayer for you.

So this is my prayer today, Mother’s Day, and everyday ~

Before you close your eyes to sleep
I have a promise still to keep
As I hold you in my arms.
I pray your little frame grows strong
And that faith takes hold while you are young;
This is my prayer for you.

Hold my hand;
I’ll teach you the Way to go.
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years,
May you trust Him ‘til the end.
May you trust Him in the end.

This world is not as it should be,
But the Savior opens eyes to see
All that’s beautiful and true.
Oh may His light fill all you are
And the jewel of wisdom crown your heart;
This is my prayer for you.

Hold my hand;
I’ll teach you the Way to go.
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years,
He is with us ‘til the end.
He is faithful ‘til the end.

You’ll travel where my arms won’t reach
As the road will rise to lead your feet
On a journey of your own.
May my mistakes not hinder you
But His grace remain and guide you through;
This is my prayer for you.

Take His hand
And go where He calls you to.
And whatever comes, seek Him
With all your heart;
This will be my prayer for you.
mmmm Father, hear my ceaseless prayer;
Oh keep them in your care.
