To Honor my Mom

2 Poems to Honor my Mom

I Miss You

I – It has been six years tomorrow since you went home to God.

 

M – Mary means wished for child.

I – I wish you knew how much you are loved; I hope you do now.

S – Serenity is what I hope you feel; you had little of it in life.

S – Strength, you had more of it than you knew.

 

Y- You were far more unique than people gave you credit for.

O – Outstanding at so many things Mom that I am not: cooking, sewing, crocheting, painting, drawing, handwriting, dancing etc.

U – Undeniably big heart for those you love.

 

Just 1 More Time

 

I wish we could rock in the squeaky rocking chair together once more

I wish we could crunch popcorn when watching a movie full of gore,

I tried not to watch, but you loved to scare me, that you did adore.

I wish we could have one more beach trip to watch you collect shells at the shore.

I wish we all had 1 more camping trip, it was funny watching you swat flies galore,

I wish I heard your laughter, even if it’s at me, along with dad’s guffawing roar,

I admit it, I was just a bit of a ham when I was about the age of four,

I wish I could hear you sing and play the accordion before I slept, and you shut my door.

Faith as a Child

Wee ones love magic,

That becomes hope in Jesus,

In an open heart.

 This haiku reminds me of this sweet verse:

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3.

Casting Your Cares

1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you.” English can be very inadequate at times. The word as a verb, “cast”, has a much more literal meaning in Greek than I ever thought. It means to to throw away or to fling away from you. One article I read described it as dumping our worries and anxieties onto God. That made me a little guilty because I really do not want to dump my problems onto people.164caoceanside But, as a parent, don’t I want to help my child with problems if I can?  Sure, I do! That is the same way that God feels about you and me! When I was a little girl, I went with my Grandpa several times to fish off the pier in Oceanside, CA. Last night, I remembered how my Grandpa would beautifully and smoothly cast his fishing pole into the ocean, far away from him. I recalled wanting to do it just like him, but I didn’t have the knack or experience. Every time I tried to cast my pole, the hook would catch on my wheelchair or on the pier itself. But, Grandpa helped me do it. He was a very special man who taught me many life lessons, even about casting my cares! He always had a way of sharing God’s love!  Years later, there were signs up not to cast your poles anymore when the new pier was built!
