"Daughter of Mine"
by Linda S.
from Virtuous Daughters, August/September 2020~Volume 20, Number 3
“Daughter of mine, a woman so kind,
how did you grow up to be so fine?”
A voice in answer so quiet and low,
“you trained me up in the way I should go.”
“Daughter of mine, so busy was I,
how did I teach you, when found I time?”
“Diligently you taught me all through the day,
as a young child in a Mother's special way.”
“Daughter of mine, If this be true,
what are some things that I taught you?”
“I learned to esteem others better than me.
not to love only in words; but also in deed.
Philippians 2:3, 1 John 3:18
I learned by example to love sisters and brothers,
as I saw you look on the things of others.
To always walk in truth you taught,
God's commands taught from the heart.”
Philippians 2:4, 3 John 1:4
“Mother of mine, You are so kind,
You are the one who is so fine.
I'd hear you pray, and learn how true,
the realness of God is in you.”
“Many a time I’ve failed and stumbled,
Daughter of mine in tears I’m humbled.”
"But as he which hath called you is holy,
so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;"
1 Peter 1:15
