The Flower of Respect By Brenda Drake

Happy Mother’s day. Gifts are great but love and respect is of far more value.

The Flower of Respect

Consier the flower …it is a beautiful thing
It is a chosen gift for pauper or for a King
Lovely and sweet smelling….though often shared
They are fragile and must be treated with care
A flower has the ability to lift your spirit when you are sad
With the touch of God it inspires and makes a heart glad
Mothers are like a flower too
How many times has she bloomed for you?
She is there from your beginning and even till the end
She is your greatest fan, ….your greatest friend
Her love is powerful, with aroma of her own
She is truly the beauty of the godly, well run home
Her place of honor is well known in heaven’s realm above
For like the flower that blooms she also shows God’s love
What a wonder she is to see
When you show her love she is renewed right in front of thee
There is great value in a child’s words of praise
Like a flower of respect are the words “Happy Mother’s day” 

Ephesians 6:2-3
Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
