A MOTHER’S MISSION

A MOTHER’S MISSION

TERRY W MALONE
SOOTHING AN ANGER, WIPING A TEAR

KISSING A HURT, CALMING A FEAR,

CATCHING A NAP, FEEDING A SPOUSE

TYING A SHOE, CLEANING A HOUSE
FROM HER EARLIEST BEGINNINGS, TILL LATE IN HER YEARS
THROUGH HOURS OF HEARTACHES, THROUGH VALLEYS OF TEARS,

ALWAYS QUICK TO LOVE, EVER READY TO BLESS

BE SON OR DAUGHTER, NEITHER SHE CONSIDERS BETTER OR BEST

THIS ANGEL MOTHER, GOD SO LOVINGLY MADE

UPON HER SHOULDERS A WORLD OF CARES WAS LAID,

WHILE A HUSBAND LABORS FOR HIS DAILY BREAD

SELDOM IF EVER IS HER PATH EASILY TRED

SAINT OR SINNER IN ACTUALITY HE MAY BE

BUT THROUGH A MOTHER*S EYE SHE OFTEN SEES,

A PRESIDENT, A CONGRESSMAN, OR EVEN A SAINT

A WORLD OF TROUBLE SHE BEARS WITHOUT COMPLAINT

RIGHT OR WRONG BE THE PATHWAYS HE TROD

FOR SOME MOTHER HE*S STILL A CHILD OF GOD,

PRAYERS BY BEDSIDE AND LATE INTO THE NIGHT

PRAYERS THAT SOMEDAY HE*LL FIND THE RIGHT

BUT NOT ONLY TO SONS DOES HER LOVE SHE IMPART

DAUGHTERS TOO FIND A SPECIAL PLACE IN HER HEART,

REPUTATIONS BESMUDGED BY MYRIAD SINS

THROUGH THESE TROUBLES A MOTHER*S LOVE NEVER ENDS

ANGEL OF MERCY SHE*S OFTEN BEEN CALLED

AS DAUGHTERS OF EVE TO THIS POSITION INSTALLED,

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE SO COMMON TO ALL

WAITING AND WATCHING FOR HER CHERUBS TO CALL

BUT WHAT IS HER TRUE MISSION, HER ROLE IN THIS LIFE?

IS IT JUST BEING A MOTHER OR SOMEBODY*S WIFE?

GOD HAS REVEALED THROUGH PROPHETS OF OLD

THE BLESSINGS OF MOTHERHOOD, HER JOYS UNTOLD

SATAN, THE CUNNING MASTER OF DECEIT

HIS PURPOSE * THE MOTHER*S MISSION TO DEFEAT,

THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF ALL EARTHLY MEN

SATAN IS CONSTANTLY WORKING, TO TRAP SOULS IN SIN

NOW, AS TIME DRAWS TO A QUICKENING CLOSE

AS A PART OF SATAN*S MASTER PLAN * WE FIND HE HAS CHOSE,

HIS TIME AND HIS EFFORTS MORE READILY USED

TO ASSAIL MAN*S LAST ETERNAL SACRED REFUGE

FOR SO OFTEN TODAY, WE CONSTANTLY HEAR

THAT A MOTHER*S ROLE WILL SOON DISAPPEAR,

SOME WOMEN DESIRE WHAT THEY CALL EQUAL RIGHTS

AND GRASPING AT ILLUSIONS THEY READY THEIR FIGHTS

CHILDREN ARE BURDENS AND NOT BE HAD

IN THIS MODERN WOMAN*S LIBERATED PAD,

MOTHERHOOD IS ASSAILED AND LITTLE IS CLEAR

WHO*LL BE MINDING THE CHILDREN WHEN MOTHER*S NOT NEAR?

THANK GOD FOR MOTHERS WHOSE EYES NEVER GROW DIM

BLESSED ARE MOTHERS WHO DON*T FOLLOW EACH WHIM,

WHO SEE IN THEIR CHILDREN, GOD*S VERY ELECT

LIBERATION FROM THIS DUTY THEY*D NEVER SELECT

AS ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED TO BE

THEIR CO-EQUAL STATUS THEY COULD EASILY SEE,

FOR RAISING UP GOD*S CHILDREN WAS A MISSION SUBLIME

FROM EVE UNTIL NOW, THROUGH ALL TIME

SO * MOTHERS TAKE CHARGE AND READY WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT

FOR ONE OF SATAN*S LAST BATTLES WITH YOU HE WILL FIGHT,

FOR WITHOUT YOUR VISION AND STEADFAST FAITH

OUR HOMES, OUR FAMILIES, WILL NEVER BE SAFE

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU ETERNALLY IS MY PRAYER

THROUGH THE HELP OF ALL FATHERS AND THE PRIESTHOOD THEY BEAR,

PRAYER IS THAT HOMES BECOME REFUGES, AND ETERNALLY WE*LL FIND

THE MISSION OF MOTHERS WAS TO SAVE MANKIND!
