Loving One of These


Though she longed for her own children,
God supplied a steady flow;
And her life was filled with youngsters
As the years would come and go.

Gently taught she of the Savior;
Little hearts received with joy
Steadily she wisely counseled
With a young and wayward boy.

Little ones with no attention
Fell into the lady’s plans,
And she loved and guided gently
Trusting God would understand.

Children need a loving Mother
Who has time to listen well;
Who can watch their face intently
As their stories they do tell.

Though her loving arms were holding
Children other than her own
Still the mother love was given,
Still the seeds of love were sown.

Not to one was she blood mother;
But I wonder how God sees -
Is it birthing makes a mother?
Or is it loving one of these?
