The Motherhood Battle and Wise Woman Linkup!


A little poem for you:

MOTHERHOOD 

The bravest battle that ever was fought!
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the world you will find it not;
'Twas fought by the mothers of men.

Nay not with the cannon of battle-shot,
With a sword or noble pen;
Nay, not with eloquent words or thought
From mouth of wonderful men!

But deep in a walled-up woman's heart --
Of a woman that would not yield,
But bravely, silently bore her part --
Lo, there is the battlefield!

No marshaling troops, no bivouac song,
No banner to gleam and wave;
But oh! those battles, they last so long --
From babyhood to the grave.

Yet, faithful still as a bridge of stars,
She fights in her walled-up town --
Fights on and on in her endless wars,
Then silent, unseen, goes down.

Oh, ye with banners and battle-shot,
And soldiers to shout and praise!
I tell you the kingliest victories fought
Were fought in those silent ways.

-- Joaquin Miller (1839-1913)

  1. Followed the link on your FB page to read this poem "Motherhood", and wanted to tell you that I was so blessed! What a beautiful way to start the day with such encouraging words! I am sitting here soaking in this beautiful music, bubbling with joy, and feeling so grateful for your ministry of what you do, lifting up and encouraging women and mothers to be all that they can be in Christ. Thank you for being an example and allowing God to use you to build others up! Love in Christ, your sister Milla!
