I Made Her Friday, May 8, 2009 - 6:32 PM

About ten years ago, my son found this article and he typed it up really nice and gave it to me for Mother's Day along with his gift. I don't know where he found it or who wrote it but I have kept it all of these years and thought I would share it this Mother's Day.

I made her. She is different. She is unique.
With Love I formed her in her mother's womb.
I fashioned her with great joy.
I remember, with great pleasure the day I created her. (Psalm 139: 13-16)

I love her smile.
I love her ways.
I love to hear her laugh
And watch the silly things she says and does.
This is how I made her. (Psalm 139: 17)

I made her pretty and not beautiful because I knew her heart,
and she would be vain...
I wanted her to search out her heart
And to learn that it would be Me in her
that would make her beautiful...
and it would be Me in her
that would draw friends to her. (I Peter 3:3-5)

I made her in such a way that she would need Me.
I made her a little more lonesome than she would like to be...
Only because I need her to lean and depend on Me.
I know her heart. I know if I had not made her like this
that she would go on and choose her own way...
and forget Me...her Creator. (Psalm 62:5-8)

I have given her many good and happy things...
Because I love her. (Psalm 84:22 and Romans 8:32)

Because I love her,
I have seen her broken heart...
And the tears she has cried alone.
I have cried with her,
And had a broken heart, too. (Psalm 56:8)

Many times she has stumbled and fallen alone
Only because she would not hold my hand.
So many lessons she has learned the hard way
Because she would not listen to My voice. (Isaiah 53:6)

So many times I have sat back
And sadly watched her go her merry way alone,
Only to watch her return to My arms sad and broken. (Isaiah 66:2)

And now she is Mine again..
I made her, and then I bought her..
Because I love her. (Romans 5:8)

I have to reshape and remold her,
To renew her to what I had planned for her to be.
It has not been easy for her or for Me. (Jeremiah 29:11)
I want her to be conformed to My image...
This goal I have set for her,
BECAUSE I LOVE HER. (II Corinthians 2:14)

All the original phrasing has been left the way I received it.

I LOVE this, and would like to have permission to copy and paste to my web sites. It is beautiful and so applies to my daughter...would like to use it for THIS Mother's Day to her.

I know that you are very thankful that you have a son so thoughtful as to give you this beautiful poem. You can be very proud, too. You are so blessed my new friend.
