Here's my poem for Mother's Day: WHY I BELIEVE IN GOD: MY MOTHER'S UNDYING LOVE By James M. Becher (
As we celebrate on this great day/ The wonder that is Mom;/ Did you ever stop to ask yourself/ From whence her love has come? /
I've never seen the red sea part/ Or gathered manna from above,/ Nor watched a dead man's life re-start/ But, I've known the miracle of a mother's undying love./
She gave me everything she had,/ And wished to give me more. / She gave herself to meet my needs / And never once got sore. /
She tried to teach to me the right / And lead me in His way;/ And prayed for me with heartfelt tears / The times I went astray. /
O' now I know my God is real./ Christ lives within my heart./ But it was my mother's faithful love / Which gave this faith it's start. /
So tell me that there is no God./ I'll ask you very plain:/ From what other source 'tis possible / My mother's dear love came?/
Let every day be Mother's day / And honor her with love;/ For surely she's a special gift / Sent down from God above./

The Greatest Love Song Ever Written by Cheri' C. Carlson

Everywhere we turn, we hear
Dedicated songs of love.
But, the greatest ever written
Comes from up above ...
The sweetest music and perfect beat.
But, it's lyrics you'll not always hear.
It's often in sights and feelings
You'll be reminded He is near ...
A stranger's smile on a dark day,
A hawk up soaring high,
A call of a friend in need,
A sunset that makes you sigh ...
A baby's laugh, a happy tear,
Holding an elderly hand,
Every blade of grass and raindrop fall,
The sky, the sea, the land ...
A soft breeze on a summer's day,
Freshly fallen snow,
The scent of rain on a dusty road,
Watching children grow ...
The music of a songbird
Putting her little ones to bed,
The warm safe arms of one you love,
The sun upon your head.
It all speaks of love so pure,
Unconditional in it's giving.
Yet, often, we don't hear His song ~
So busy in our living.
Imagine creating a love song
For the dear ones in your life
And never having it listened to;
No one took the time.
Take the time to hear His song.
Feel the love the He sings.
Revel in it's sincere beauty
and all the joy it brings.

Close your eyes and hear the sounds.
Open them and see the sights.
Spread your arms and accept His tune;
The world in a brighter light.
If you listen openly to His song,
You will never be alone.
For, it's played from the day He creates you
Until He comes to take you home.
Of all the love songs ever done,
Vowing eternal love,
The one you can always count on
Comes from up above.

God's Love by Helen Johnson

In the loveliest gifts of nature
in the quiet hush of the early
morning dawn;
I feel your presence near me
and hear your voice in the night
winds' song.
It's you whom I can lean upon
who will gently lead me on this
path that I'm on.
For this life will soon pass and
one day will be gone,
While eternity flows quietly on!

I am holding your love here in
my heart
knowing that from me, you will
never depart!
I'll not feel the pangs of emptiness
but will wait with patience and
Because you are always here
with me, I will never be left
all alone;
You have sheltered me from
the storms that come and
claimed me as your very own!
Lord, you've given me strength
to get through today;
My trust is in you each step
of the way!
I will follow where ever you lead
and to your precious voice I will
always heed!
As for Tomorrow it may never
 and it's your love which makes me
 feel so alive!
It's you for whom I will strive
knowing that you will help me
One day up in glory I will
stand before your throne;
Because for me, all my sins
you atoned!
It was your precious blood
that was shed for me;
And your gift of salvation
has set me free!
My treasures are laid up
in heaven with thee;
For it's with you my Lord
I will one day spend eternity!
Oh what a glorious day that
will be;
When you appear in the clouds
and beckon to me!

YOU ARE THE REASON By Russell Kelfer

You are who you are for a reason.
You're part of an intricate plan.
You're a precious and perfect unique design.
Called God's special woman or man.
You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb,
You're just what He wanted to make.
The parents you had were the ones He chose.
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God's plan in mind.
And they bear the Master's seal.
No, that trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart
So that into His likeness you'd grow.
You are who you are for a reason,
You've been formed by the Master's rod.
You are who you are, beloved,
Because there is a God!
