In the Heart of a Mother’s Hands

In the Heart of a Mother’s Hands

In the light of the evening sky
I heard the faint sound of a baby, nigh
She was joyous in her mother’s hands
Smiling at her little one, there she stands

It was a pure moment of warmth and glee
I watched in the sunset, sipping my tea
I swooned at the sight, too good to be true
I wished I could be in the same moment, don’t you?

They looked into each other’s eyes, blissfully and peacefully, into the night
I could not help hold back my smile, despite my unsuccessful tries
Could it get any better?
Cause I’ve never seen anything sweeter
The gentle breeze accompanied them, along with the gentle waves
As I thought deeper, I felt being without my mother was like how creatures lived in caves

I felt a sense of tranquility as life felt better
Just admiring the way they were together
I exhaled my worries as I watched the compassion that sparked
Tears trickled down my face in the dark

I knew I had to go
As I took a final look at their faces, aglow
I trudged along my path, not wanting to go back
But I had to, as there was pending work of mine to track
With my final glance at the bond of the mother and daughter
I took back home the lovely emotions they shared near the water

I thought to myself, I have never seen anything as pleasant and bright
As I walked along in the faded moonlight
May God bless the mother and child
So the mother brings her up well, to face the wild

    Good one! Also,

    Heavenly Mother (Mary) on Like any mother, I long to tend to the needs of My children in a new year message to Maureen dated January 1, 2021

    Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Holy Mother of God and the Octave of Christmas*

    The Blessed Virgin Mary says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

    “Each and every person that walks the face of the earth is My child and I am their Mother. Like any mother, I long to tend to the needs of My children. I desire that they turn to Me with trust, through prayer in their every need. I take all of their needs to the Heart of My Beloved Son, Who listens intently to My prayers. He follows closely the Will of the Father."

    "Therefore, you are never alone in your needs, not in any given present moment. Pray for your trust in this throughout the New Year."

    Read Galatians 6:7-10+

    Dear Bhavanaji,
    Good Day.

    Deeply expressed the relation between the child and mother.

    Mother is the representative of God and Son of Goo too even come to this world through Mother.

    Caring mother in her old age is a privilege to us as once upon a time she cared her and we cannot return back the mother she did to us.

    Even she becomes old or insane we should not forsake her.

    Thanks and nicely conveyed the message.

    God Bless you and everyone.
