From a grandma's vantage-point I can say from this...
...to this ...
is a blink!
...to mothers/homemakers and future mothers/homemakers
Thou, Keeper of love's sacred springs
Where childhood's feet splash through
Thou, daughter of the King of kings
The world depends on you
Thou, hand that rocks the cradle, oh
Though humble seems thy role
There is no greater charge, oh no
Than that of a child's soul
Thou, matriarch with tender voice
Thou mother in the home
'Child makes a choice and then the choice
Will make who they become'
...so, thou with baby in thy arms
Or children at thy knee
Be of good cheer, thy presence warms
Both home and family
Thy gentle voice is like a song
Thy touch, like hope unfurled
Thy common toil should rank among
The grandest in the world
Thy confidence in God to guide
In pathways, true and right
Thy mother-mild to kneel beside
Thy little child at night
Oh, may the comfort of thy love
And faithful 'being there'
Be like a poignant symbol of
God's faithful love and care
Thou, teacher of obedience
May love's humility
Make home a royal residence
For God and family
I cannot force you to listen to these messages below but I do ever-so-highly recommend it!(after hubby suggested that I might like them...he listens to this speaker sometimes while he is driving)
Messages by Jack Graham to exhort and encourage godly girls and women, esp. wives and mothers.

Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
