I Wanna To Be More Like That
If I was a perfect mom, I would be to the “T” what this poem describes but since I’m not its fun to study it to remind me (and the other members of our household) how to do better.
Just to be tender, just to be true,
Just to be glad the whole day through,
Just to be merciful, just to be mild,
Just to be trustful as a child:
Just to be gentle and kind and sweet,
Just to be helpful with willing feet,
Just to be cheery when things go wrong,
Just to drive sadness away with song,
Whether the hour is dark or bright,
Just to be loyal to God and right,
Just to believe that God knows best,
Just in His promise ever to rest,
Just to let love be our daily key,
That is God’s will for you and me.
