A Higher Calling
I live a very simple life,
I am a mother, friend and wife
There’s never been a ounce of pay
For the tasks that I perform each day.
Little pleasures I enjoy---
Obedience from my little boy,
Renew my lifelong purpose, goal,
Enriching others heart and soul.
Though lacking stature, outward looks-
And sums of knowledge found in books,
My span on earth is just as stout,
As goals that others carry out.
For in God’s vast plan and design,
He saw a job, worthy of time.
Then looked for one this job to claim,
And paused-- and to it signed my name.
Eventually I hope to publish some more poems and stories from my wife here on the Blog. I trust they will not only humour you but also encourage you.
