This Is Your Mother …

{ Tags: , , \ May31 }

I look at her with awe
this woman of great courage
in the darkest night of her life
she continues to believe and to hope
in a God of mercy
in a God faithful to his promises.

Men have failed in this hour
to go the distance our fellowship demands
one has betrayed, the other denied
the man on the cross
she now lovingly gazes at
and to think he is her Son.

What sufferings can a mother bear
what agony can her heart endure
before she finally lets
her quiet sobbing become a wail
of lament?

“Woman behold your Son”
the voice from the cross
the voice of Him whom another voice has proclaimed
“Listen to Him”
the voice of one about to accomplish
what He was Sent to do
I turn my gaze upon Him
to hear what he desires
“This is your Mother.”

And from that day onwards, the beloved disciple took her into his own.
