    A Poem for Mama

    You have made me ascend to heights I never imagined I could reach
    Guiding me through all I have encountered
    Never judging me once for mistakes I have made.
    An angel amidst a beautiful world
    Like the voice of the birds singing,
    Your voice is music to my ears.
    As the fish swim in the depths of the sea,
    I am free when I am with you
    You are my all, my heart, my strength, my love.

    Thoughts of you purify my soul
    Easing my mind
    Teaching me to love beyond human understanding.
    You have driven out fear from my being
    Taught me that with faith impossible is nothing.
    I am that I am because of your great love

    You mama, are the epitome of unconditional love
    Just as God loves me, you love me.
    You are the wind beneath my wings
    As I soar effortlessly in a sky so blue
    Simply because you are forever there with me
    By my side.


    Psalm 46:10 ‘Let be and be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge.’
    Shalom!

    Re:Mama

    This is a beautiful write. Love can evaporate all types of fear.
    Everyone and everything grow in time. Remember we all are of
    flesh and therefore will sin in some way. But the secret to it all
    is Jesus still love us cause He died for our sins. So to judge is to
    judge one self but to love is the greatest gift given.
