A Mother’s Heart

“Deep within her breast of clay, filled with love from day to day;

All for you from life’s first start, is your mother’s holy heart.

Heart of passion, peace and prayer; heart of mother’s daily care;

For her children one and all, should they stand or should they fall.

Heart endowed with God’s own love, filled with goodness from above;

Heart that cheers and wishes well, when your life has turned pell-mell.

Blessed heart—that gift from God; heart that softens cruelest rod;

Heart that weeps and heart that prays, all her life-long earthly days.”

(Pastor Anthony Slutz)

“An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.” (Spanish Proverb)

“The best academy is a mother’s knee.” (James Russell Lowell)

“A mother understands what a child does not say.” (Jewish Proverb)

“A mother holds her children’s hands for a little while—their hearts forever.” (Unknown)

“Mother never quite leaves her children at home—even when she does not take them along.”

(Margaret Banning)

“All that I am or hope to be I owe to my angel mother.” A. Lincoln

A gracious woman retaineth honor….” (Proverbs 11:16)
