God's Masterpiece is Mother

God took the fragrance of a flower,
The majesty of a tree;
The gentleness of morning dew,
The calm of a quiet sea.

The beauty of the twilight hour,
The soul of a starry night;

The laughter of a rippling brook,
The grace of a bird in flight.

Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,

And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply – Mother.

[Herbert Farnham]

Proverbs 31:27-28 ... She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
