Looking in the Mirror


Mom and Dad back in 1945 and Mom with a family friend in early 2000's

It is Mothering Day in UK (like our Mother's Day here) and I am posting this in honor of my mom!

Looking in the Mirror

Lifting sunlit eyes
Many faceted green

You wrought

When I was but
Womb bound

You brought
All Your pre-thought
Me
To be
Together found

Sperm and ova united
Breath of life
You breathed
Holy Spirit ordained
Pre-held little one

Joyfully known
By the hosts
Of heaven
Before my mother
Had a clue

Cherished of God
Before my mother
Shed tears
Earthly sorrow
Uncontrolled

She made her choice
I was given life
Time
To grow
And glow and know

What You planned
For two celled
Me
Plans in time
And then Eternity

She’s with You now
And I thank her still
Her difficult choice
My life, my breath
As she exercised her will.

Jeremiah 1:5 (New King James Version)
“ Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Psalms 139:13 (New King James Version)
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
