Thank You Mum

By Lucy Wall

I wrote this poem because I wanted to show my gratitude to my Mum for everything she’s done for me over the years. From the little things such as putting plasters on my knees and comforting me when I fell to the much bigger things in life. Things such as her wisdom, guidance, encouragement and teaching me about the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In hindsight I can really see the constant, godly influence my Mum has been in my life and how she has stayed faithful to her ministry even when I wasn’t staying faithful to mine. Although this poem has been written by me for my Mum personally, my hope is that others may be able to relate to the sentiment, the emotions and the gratitude of the poem too.

The Beginning Of Sorrows

It seems that the more time passes the further away from God society is moving. Sometimes when I look at the lost condition of the world and hear how hateful people can be towards God it fills my heart with despair. I often think of the Bible passage from Romans 1:28-32 which reads,

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them."

I Remember

By Lucy Wall

“I Remember” is a poem I wrote for my Mum and Dad’s Ruby Wedding Anniversary and gave it to them framed as a gift. It’s quite a simple little poem but it speaks of just a few of the happy memories I have from growing up. It also shows my gratitude to them for all their love and hard work over the years and ultimately my gratitude to Jesus for blessing me with the family that He gave me.
