God’s Masterpiece

The Lord was into his 6th day of overtime, creating Mothers, when an angel appeared to Him and said”, You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one.”

“Have you seen the specifications on this order?” God asked. “She has to be completely washable but not made of plastic. She needs to have 180 moveable and replaceable parts,

 She must be able to run on black coffee and leftovers, have a lap that completely disappears when she stands up, and a kiss that can cure everything from a broken leg to a broken heart.

Oh, and six pairs of hands.”

“Six pairs of hands?” said the angel. “No way!”

“Actually,” said the Lord, “It’s not the six pairs of hands that are causing the problem, it’s the three pairs of eyes.”

“That’s on the standard model,” said the angel and God nodded.

“One pair to see through closed doors and ask”What are you kids up to in there?, even though she already knows

Another pair in the back of her head so she can see things that she she really shouldn’t see but needs to know about. And of course the eyes in the front that tells a child she loves them and understands even when they’re in trouble, without uttering a word.

 “Lord,” said the angel,“go to bed. Tomorrow is another day.”

“I can’t,” said the Lord,” I’m so close now. Already I have one that can heal herself when she’s sick, feed a family of six on half a kilo of mince, and get an eight year old under the shower.”

The angel circled the model very slowly. “It’s too soft,” she sighed.

“But tough,”said the Lord.” you cannot imagine what this Mother can do or endure.”

“Can it think?” asked the angel.

“Not only think,”replied the Lord.” but reason and compromise as well!” 

Finally the angel bent over and ran a finger across a soft cheek.

“There’s a leak,” she said.

 “That’s not a leak,” said God. “It’s a tear.”

“WHat’s it for?” asked the angel

” It’s for joy, sadness, disappointment,pain, loneliness, and pride.”

“You’re a genius,” said the angel.

And God smiled softly. Not for what he had accomplished but for the joy His creation would bring.


From one mother to another. I know  only a mother will understand the rigours and the joys of being a a MOTHER

…….there’s nothing else that can compare! 


Soul Searching

Published September 5, 2013 by Healthy Living with nature

No Time, No Time….


I knelt to pray, but not for long.

 I had too much to do.

 I had to hurry and get to work, 

For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer

 And jumped up off my knees. 

My Christian duty was now done.

 My soul could rest at ease….

All day long I had no time 

To spread a word of cheer.

 No time to speak of God to friends.

 They’d laugh at me I fear.

No time! No time! TOO MUCH TO DO!

 That was my constant cry, 

No time to give to souls in need

But…. at last the time to die.

 I went before the Lord,

 I came, I stood, with downcast eyes.

For, in His hands God held a book,

 It was the book of life.

God looked into His book and said:

“Your name I could not find.

I was going to write it down….

 But, I never found the time.”

Wistful Wishing

Published September 3, 2013 by Healthy Living with nature

I wish for:

Comfort on days that are difficult,

Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Rainbows to follow clouds,

  Laughter to soothe yearning lips, 

Sunsets to warm aching hearts

Gentle hugs for sagging spirits,

 Friendship to brighten each day,

Beauty for longing eyes to observe,

 Confidence for when in doubt,

Faith to help flagging belief,

Courage to know our true selves,

Patience for acceptance of truth,

And LOVE to make life complete.

Daddy’s Delight

Daddy’s Delight


Walking In Dad’s footsteps…….


“Walk a little slower Daddy”, said a child

so small.” I’m following in your footsteps and

I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,

 Sometimes they’re hard to see;

So walk a little slower Daddy,

 For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up,

You’re what I want to be;

 Then I will have a little child

Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,

 And know that I was true;

So walk a little slower Daddy,

 For I must follow you.”

…….is what little children do.
