To Love My Children

(2013 Throwback)

From the pages of “The Book”, as His words exit my lips

Every night just before the clock strikes eight

To love my children is to protect them- with the whole armor of God

Positive affirmation, speaking words of encouragement and faith

To love them is to NOT blurt out harsh unkind words

Cutting deep into the soul, once they’ve escaped

To love my children is uplift and soothe them

As the soft lyrics of a spiritual hymn eases their minds

What greater love is there for my children,

Than to share a gift as precious as the Lord and His word

To know Him, is to love them

For there is no greater love
