A Song for Mothers...



I thought I would change my song for just a little while.
The song is called "A Song for Mothers" by Abigail Miller.
Her link can be found in my sidebar.
This song encourages my heart every time I listen to it.
What a wonderful reminder to see our children
through the Lord Jesus' eyes.
I hope it blesses your heart as it has mine.



"A Song for Mothers"

I think this is the hundreth time

I've said, "Don't slam the door".
And I know I'm getting tired

of sweeping Cheerios off the floor.
There's peanut butter on

the kitchen curtains I've just made.
And finger printed windows

in every room where they have played.
Sometimes I feel like changing diapers

is all I'm living for,
But Lord, when I'm before you,

I know there's ever so much more.
Please help me to remember

these words that you have said
That I may see my children through Your eyes...


Whatever you do unto one of the least of these,
You have done it unto Me.
A cup of cold water
A kiss on the knee
Whatever you do, you've done it unto Me


There are toys everywhere I look.

There's laundry in the hall.
There are school books in the kitchen,

colored pictures on the wall.
Sometimes I grow to envy

those whose house is always clean,
Who have time to do the projects

of which I can only dream.
Sometimes it seems like motherhood

is a never ending chore,
But, Lord, when I'm before You,

I know there's ever so much more.
Help me to see that everything I do can be a way
To offer up my services to You...


Whatever you do unto one of the least of these,
You have done it unto Me.
A cup of cold water
A kiss on the knee
Whatever you do, you've done it unto Me

Suffer the little children to come unto Me.
Like little children is what you wanted us to be.
There's so much we can learn, Dear Lord,
When we see our children through Your eyes...

Whatever you do unto one of the least of these,
You have done it unto Me.
A cup of cold water
A kiss on the knee
Whatever you do unto one of these,
You've done it unto Me.

Whatever you do,
You have done it unto Me.


"Then shall he answer them, saying,
Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye did it

not to one of the least of these,
ye did it not to me."
Matthew 25:45

Hiya Kristy Jo ~ It was a nice surprise to hear from you outside of VUH.
I really enjoy this song, too. It's always a blessing to hear and a good reminder of what a mother's perspective should be. *Ü*
