A Mother’s Longing


Homemade cards.

Eating together.

Catching up.

Relief from kitchen duty.

Do these make up

What a mother longs for?


They’re very nice.

And very much appreciated.

But what do I truly want?

What will make this mother’s heart

Take flight?

Children who love

The Flight Instructor.

Children who diligently study

The Flight Manual.

Children who discover

The Plan for their lives.

Children who fulfill

Their Purpose.

Will they succeed

By the world’s standards?


Maybe not.

But if they do these things,

I know

They will be

Forever blessed.

And this mother’s heart

Will never cease to soar.

…those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD (Psalm 34:10-11 NIV) .
