Religious Poem

To God and my 4 children.

Thank You Lord

© Antoinette McDonald
I wish to thank you Lord
For allowing me to be a mother
I accept these precious gifts you've bestowed upon me wholeheartedly
I pledge to raise these miracles to reflect your light
I promise to cherish them
I will love them unconditionally
I will take them by the hand and guide them through life
I will teach them right from wrong
I will share with them patience, kindness, gentleness, joy, and laughter
I will show them compassion, understanding, thoughtfulness, and gentleness
I will shine upon them faith, truth, and prayer
I will pick them up when they fall
I will dry their eyes when they cry
I will comfort them when they are sick
I will calm them down when they have fears
I will instruct them that it is because of YOU that they have life
