These beautiful girls that God sent to my sons
Are cherished by all, like treasures we’ve won.
Lovely, enthusiastic, caring and smart
They are blessings to me, these daughters of my heart.

A devoted Christian whose faith is real,
She raised my husband with joy and zeal.
She nurtured him wisely, right from the start
Then her love touched me - this mother of my heart.

A mix of personalities with a strong zest for living
A family filled with a true joy of giving
Ready to share and do their part
They are, truly, brothers and sisters of my heart.

What a varied and incredible family tree -
How blessed I am that they’ve all come to me.
For God’s plan was surely a work of art
As He gave me this family, born into my heart.

Best of all, we are members of God’s Family Tree,
Joined together through Him to live faithfully.
By His blood, we are all sisters and brothers
Sons and daughters, fathers and mothers.

I think you covered them all quite nicely. Truly, some in-laws ARE of the heart. Well done.

I love this poem! It speaks of what a family truly should be, born of the heart. If a family is not truly born of love they will miss out on the true joys of life. Very well done Peggy! Love, Sharon
