Lesson of the Doily

doily

So intricate it’s weaving

home spun work of fine lace,

I turned it over in my hands

this sample of beauty and grace.

 

As I gazed upon the pattern

I wondered how much time

that it took to make this doily

so simple, yet also sublime.

 

To create a delicate piece such as this

I truly had the will,

yet I knew it wouldn’t be possible

with my obvious lack of skill.

 

At this point in my musings,

the Lord spoke to my heart

of a different sort of handiwork

that He wanted me to start.

 

“Just put your hand in My hand,”

God whispered in my ear.

“I’ll show you how to guide your children

so that my name, they will fear.

 

Day after day, together we can work

My character in them to engrave

this blessed undertaking you must never shirk

that their precious souls might be saved.”

 

So I must be faithful to pray, teach and labor

and in passing of time, I’ll be seeing

upon their lives, God’s great favor

His attributes knit into their being.

Happy Mother’s Day! No matter how old our children are, may we never stop praying for them and doing all we can to influence them to become more like Jesus.
