Happy Mother's Day!
I Promise to Hold Your Hand
You entered this world and your tiny wrinkly fingers curled around my own
In that simple gesture, you gave me your trust and I promised to hold your hand, forevermore
Through first steps and new adventures
Through sprinklers and mud puddles
As you become conscious of your beautifully perfect, God-formed body
Through achievements and wrong turns
Through new love and heartbreak
As you learn about Christ and walk into His water
Through finding the one and becoming his bride
As you welcome your very own miracle of life
And although I promise to hold your hand through every step of life, I know that one day you'll be the one holding my hand
Through wrinkles and loss
Through aches and change
As I enter into His glorious gates
Your hand now rests in God's
He will hold you, guide you, love you, delight in you
And on the day you join the angels in Heaven, you'll find me waiting to hold your hand, once more, forevermore
