Granddaughter baked a cake last night
And topped it today with candlelight
Then asked the children to come near
She had a story for them to hear

A story about a Holy birth
When God sent His Son to earth
This is our Savior’s special day
She said, as they bowed heads to pray

There’d be no Christmas on this earth
Without our precious Savior’s birth
Let’s not forget God’s gift to man
And honor Him, whenever we can

The children then blew out the flame,
As they sang praises in His name.
Happy Birthday, Jesus, they sang out
In their efforts to be devout

I’m sure God smiled when He heard them sing
Pleased that they were remembering

Still in my heart


Mama was small
Just five foot two
Dearest person
I ever knew

Made all our clothes
And washed by hand
Helped with homework
Gardened our land

Tended chickens
Milked the old cow
Hoed the garden
And fed the sow

That was Mother
When I was young
Still in my heart . . .
Her praises sung
