She sits down at the table – Makes her list for the day. She fills up every line – Says ‘It’s time to pray’. Basking in relative calm – Before the kids come down the stairs She closes her eyes and asks God – To meet with her there. And she walks through Heaven’s Gates – Wrapped in God’s great power and grace And she lays her burdens down at Jesus’ feet. Then rising through her prayer – She realized right there That a mother’s heart is where heaven and earth meet. She speaks from her heart – Quoting His Word. She believes everything God has written – Though to some it’s absurd. But every angel in heaven – Is gathered ‘round the throne To hear a mother plead – For her own.
