As more days go by
As I think about you more
I realise what a mother I have
I see how much work I need to put
into being a better son.
I am amazed
How someone I met so randomly
Can be so beautiful
Can love so genuinely
And never hold anything back.
There should be a verse
Written somewhere public
There are many pastors
There are many teachers
But very few real mothers.
You are my mama,
A mother who chose me,
Who took that mantle with ease and gladness
Who watches over my life diligently
Yet I haven’t been the best of sons.
You have shown me genuine love,
You are obvious in your care and concern.
You have lifted me up whenever we met
You gently but strongly pressed and pushed me
You challenge my mind to open.
You demand that I think
Think beyond my brick walls
Think beyond the mediocrity
Think beyond my life of confinement
Think and then act on it.
You believe in me even when I don’t
You are confident about my gift
You push me to be professional
You demand I focus on growth
You see my devotion to God.
You have never doubted my abilities
If you did it never shows
You warm me when I am being foolish
You stand on the sidelines watching
Never losing faith in me no matter what.
The last year may have been hard
Yet you have never left me
I count you as a huuuuge blessing
An ever present support
Always by and on my side.
I need you to know
I appreciate you mama
I appreciate you completely and wholly
I love you like the awesome wonder woman you are
I love you Mama!!
You have let God use you to bless
You have modelled habits for me
You have watched as God is working on me
Today I choose to be a better man
A man who loves God.
Your life is built on a WORD
A word God spoke to you
Not just you doing what you think
But living out a divine plan and pattern
That is a major difference
I daily learn how essential the word is
How much my walk depends on it
How many people will challenge it
How much I will have to choose the Word
How my belief of that word will strengthen me.
I am now on the right track.
There is so much I have to overcome
I really want to walk with God
There are always depths I will uncover
I will grow no matter what.
I have discovered the Well in God
I will always drink of God
I will discover myself in Him
I will get to know myself well
I will remove all facades & false mirrors.
You warm my heart mama
You have opened your heart to me
You inspire me to be so much better
You are vulnerable with your children
You always make us feel at safe and at home.
Mama you have my heart
You win it over, ever time we talk
Your faith in me inspires me to keep walking
I will find more time to spend with you
I will follow God more nearly, because of your example.
Thank you Mama,
Your love has changed my life
Your faith has charted a path
Your honesty has challenged me
Your love for God…is my greatest example.
