Dear Mama, You Will

Dear Mama, You Will

Dear Mama,
both Beautified and Broken by birth,
You will
feel Whole again.

Dear Mama,
Delighted and Distressed
by your babe’s endless cries,
You will
find Quiet again.

Dear Mama
filled with both Gladness and Guilt,
You will
find Peace again.

Dear Mama
both Cherishing and Challenged
by your child’s constant need of you,
You will
find Space to breathe again
(and it’s okay to want that).

Dear Mama
both Beaming and Bruised
by the work that consumes you
You will
find Rest again.

But for now
it’s
Okay
to Cry and to Celebrate
simultaneously,
to Grieve and to Glory
all at once,
because

Dear Mama,
though you may be
Bewildered and Beaten,

He will

carry you through

  1. Absolutely perfect and I love this poem!!! I say many times these days that motherhood is so under-rated by too many people and I see it as the most blessed gift from God that a woman is so special to be able to carry in her womb another human being, her and her husband’s baby, a child of God’s in her body for 9 month’s forming a bond that is the closest any two human beings on earth can have; which can never be broken, that’s why a mother is so precious and great, they deserve so much praise and respect; we have our lives to thank them for! WOW I had just thought about this matter of mothers and women just yesterday and then I see this great poem! God is working in mysterious ways and many dots are being connected for us to behold His presence and love for us! God Bless You and Yours. Amen.

    • Thanks so much for reading! And for your gratitude for mother’s. It’s easy to forget what a gift it is we’ve been given during a hard day
