Your mother is somebody special.

Your mother is a very special
woman in your life. When you
were a young child, she
dedicated your life to her
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Because she really cares,
she uses her unique gifts
to share in so many ways.

She not only remembers you,
but your entire family too.
So why not tell her a few
simple words on Mother's Day,
'Mom, we really love you! '

Poet's Notes about The Poem

All I really did between the two versions is simple enough. I took the orginal longer sentence in the first line, and made it into
two separate sentences. I also separated the verses, to make it easier to read. The final revision was using the! mark instead of a period in the closing line.

Why did I write this poem since my own mother has been dead since June 4,2007? I wrote for Faith Lutheran's Church's monthly news bulletin. I am always getting positive feedback about my poems from my fellow church members. Positive and negatitive feedback is necessary to help make you a better poet.

At my former chruch- Calvary Baptist Church- Everett, Washington, I frequently received both, as well as tips in poetry composition.

I wrote one poem about Grace, for example and he said I was really writing about Faith. (I can't remember the exact conversation, so I used an example.) He backed it up with a bible verse quotation. At first my feelings were hurt, but he explained that he was only trying to help me...Thank you Thurman!

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
