Mothers The World Needs


"Mothers with courage; mothers who pray,

These are the kind the world needs today.

Mother who think, who study and plan;

Mothers who laugh as much as they can,

Having the gift that is better than money--

The habit of seeing that some things are funny.

Mothers whose faith never wavers or falters;

Mothers whose spirits the world never alters;

Loving the right and scorning the wrong;

Facing the problems of life with a song.

Mothers whose bravery transcends their fears;


Winning the battle with patience and tears;

Never submitting to weakness or sin---

Storming heaven's gates till the children are in.

Mothers heroic, not guilty of whining;
Hands graced with service and faces with shining.

Mothers of purity, virtue and faith,

Steadfast in life and triumphant in death;

Looking beyond the dark pathway of sorrow,

Seeking a home in God's joyous tomorrow,

Leading the children; pointing the way---

These are the mothers, the world needs today!

-Kathryn Blackburn Peck

How encouraging!

I also want to thank you for taking the time to post an African American mother. You don't see our loving moments as often as you should online.

All of those points are great reminders. I especially like the line about moms who laugh, as this is something I'm working on! :-) Seeing the joy in every day things...

Thank you for being like a "mentor" to me even though I have never met you. God is using your gift of wisdom to bless me in my role of motherhood. I value the wisdom and encouragement I find on your blog. I will continue to share your blog with many women! Thank you so much!
