Victorian Lace on Mother's Day
Let's take a journey back in time
To centuries long ago
When everything was beautiful
And gentle streams did flow.
Where happy children graced the halls
In mansions on a hill
Where charm and grace did set the pace
In memories, lingering still.
A time when ladies met for tea
At tables set for two
Southern Belles with things to tell
In misty morning hue.
Corsets here and bustles there
Such lovely flowing dresses
A touch of eloquence was found
Beneath those lovely tresses.
All dressed up in fringe and lace
With gowns of flowing white
They held their children close to them
And tucked them in at night.
With locks of hair pulled up in buns
And topped with pretty bonnet
The legend that was left behind
Goes nearly like a sonnet.
The century now has turned the tide
They since have gone away
And other mothers fill the earth
To brighten Mother's Day.
Through the passing years in time
One thing will stay the same
The precious name of mother
Her love will always remain.
For all the ladies gone before
I pray for heaven's grace
To all the mothers here today
I wish you frills and lace.

Ephesians 6:1-3 (KJV)
Children, obey your parents in the Lord:
for this is right. 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.
May His glorious graces and beautiful blessings
abound to you on Mother's Day and always!
