Amazing love

When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son. Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy.
Luke 1:57 (NIV)

"I was there to hear your borning cry. I'll be there when you are old,
I rejoiced the day you were baptized, to see your life unfold.
I was there when you were but a child, with a faith to suit you well;
In a blaze of light you wandered off, to find where demons dwell."

"When you heard the wonder of the Word I was there to cheer you on; You were raised to praise the living Lord, to whom you now belong. If you find someone to share your time and join your hearts as one, I'll be there to make your verses rhyme from dusk 'till rising sun."

"In the middle ages of your life, not too old, no longer young, I'll be there to guide you through the night, complete what I've begun. When the evening gently closes in, and you shut your weary eyes, I'll be there as I have always been, with just one more surprise."

"I was there to hear your borning cry,
I'll be there when you are old.
I was there the day you were baptized
To see your life unfold."

Happy Mother's Day, mom! Thank you for giving me life. I love you.

Blessings, dear friend.
