Mother’s Day has been celebrated on the second Sunday of May since 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson declared it a national holiday but it was originated by Ann Jarvis, a devout Methodist woman.
Harriet Olson, Chief Executive, United Methodist Women is quoted saying, “Ann Jarvis was convinced that mothers, women, but especially mothers, had to work for peace because they could see the ravages of war in their husbands and in their sons, in a way that was so focused and so clear that their voices would be powerful. And that’s what’s at the genesis of the current Mother’s Day.”

Mothers are Forever By Julie L. McCarty
Anxious prayers ascend to heaven, The young mother depends on God, To nurture the life she's been given. When the mother hears the first cry, The tiny child claims her heart, A bond that cannot be broken, Deep passionate love from the start.
God’s Masterpiece is Mother By Herbert Farnham
God took the fragrance of a flower... The majesty of a tree... The gentleness of morning dew... The calm of a quiet sea... The beauty of the twilight hour... The soul of a starry night... The laughter of a rippling brook... The grace of a bird in flight... Then God fashioned from these things A creation like no other, And when his masterpiece was through He called it simply – Mother.

Everything Mom By Joanna Fuchs
How did you find the energy, Mom, To do all the things you did, To be teacher, nurse and counselor To me, when I was a kid. How did you do it all, Mom, Be a chauffeur, cook and friend, Yet find time to be a playmate, I just can't comprehend. I see now it was love, Mom, That made you come whenever I'd call, Your inexhaustible love, Mom, And I thank you for it all.
His Mother By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Even He that died for us upon the cross, in the last hour, in the unutterable agony of death, was mindful of His mother, as if to teach us that this holy love should be our last worldly thought - the last point of earth from which the soul should take its flight for heaven.

Wonderful Mother of Mine By Clyde Hager
I pray every night to our Father above, For that wonderful mother of mine. I ask Him to keep her as long as He can That wonderful mother of mine. There are treasures on earth, That made life seem worthwhile, But there's none can compare To my mother's smile.
A Mother’s Love By Calvin M Lake
A Mother's love, a Mother's care, A Mother's sigh, a Mother's prayer A Mother's work, and Mother's day, Leaves little time for any play. A Godly Mother with Godly love, Is treasure from God above, A Godly Mother with Godly care, Has God's help when she sighs a prayer.
God’s Helpers By George W. Wiseman
God could not be in every place With loving hands to help erase The teardrops from each baby's face, And so He thought of mother. He could not send us here alone And leave us to a fate unknown; Without providing for His own, The outstretched arms of mother. God could not watch us night and day And kneel beside our crib to pray, Or kiss our little aches away; And so He sent us mother. And when our childhood days began, He simply could not take command. That's why He placed our tiny hand Securely into mother's. The days of youth slipped quickly by, Life's sun rose higher in the sky. Full grown were we, yet ever nigh To love us still, was mother. And when life's span of years shall end, I know that God will gladly send, To welcome home her child again, That ever-faithful mother.

Thank God for Mother’s Love By Anonymous
There is no love, like a mother's love, no stronger bond on earth... like the precious bond that comes from God, to a mother, when she gives birth. A mother's love is forever strong, never changing for all time... and when her children need her most, a mother's love will shine. God bless these special mothers, God bless them every one... for all the tears and heartache, and for the special work they've done. When her days on earth are over, a mother's love lives on... through many generations, with God's blessings on each one. Be thankful for our mothers, for they love with a higher love... from the power God has given, and the strength from up above.

Mother’s Day By Carol Matthews
A Mother loves right from the start. She holds her baby close to her heart. The bond that grows will never falter. Her love is so strong it will never alter. A Mother gives never ending Love. She never feels that she has given enough. For you she will always do her best. Constantly working, there's no time to rest. A Mother is there when things go wrong. A hug and a kiss to help us along. Always there when we need her near. Gently wipes our eyes when we shed a tear. So on this day shower your Mother with Love. Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough. Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind. Be gentle, be good, be helpful, be kind. Happy Mothers Day
To Mother By Thomas W. Fessenden
You painted no Madonnas On chapel walls in Rome, But with a touch diviner You lived one in your home. You wrote no lofty poems That critics counted art, But with a nobler vision You lived them in your heart. You carved no shapeless marble To some high-souled design, But with a finer sculpture You shaped this soul of mine. You built no great cathedrals That centuries applaud, But with a grace exquisite Your life cathedraled God. Had I the gift of Raphael, Or Michelangelo, Oh, what a rare Madonna My mother's life would show!
For You Mum On Mother’s Day By M.S.Lowndes
I want to tell you, Mum That you're special to the Lord, And you are valued in His eyes, For no one loves you more. And Mum, I want you to know How blessed you really are, For I know that it was never easy, Those past years were quite hard. But even through the years gone by, I believe that God was there, Reaching out with loving arms, Though we were unaware. And He is still beside you Longing to be a part Of all the things that interest you, For you're special in His heart. For even in the daily struggles That seems to be part of life, The Lord longs to be involved And fill the void inside. So Mum, on this Mother's day, I just want you to know That you were always appreciated And that Jesus loves you so.

Motherhood By Helen Steiner Rice
The dearest gifts that heaven holds, The very finest, too, Were made into one pattern That was perfect, sweet, and true; The Angels smiled, well-pleased, and said: "Compared to all the others, This pattern is so wonderful Let's use it just for Mothers!" And through the years a mother has been All that's sweet and good For there's one bit of God and love, In all true Motherhood.
Her Love Is Like An Island By Anon
Mother's love is like an island, In life's ocean vast and wide A peaceful, quiet shelter From the wind, the rain, the tide. 'Tis bound on the north by Hope, By Patience on the west, By tender Counsel on the south And on the east by Rest. Above it like a beacon light Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer; And thro' the changing scenes of life I find a haven there.

Only One Mother By George Cooper
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky, Hundreds of shells on the shore together, Hundreds of birds that go singing by, Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather. Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn, Hundreds of bees in the purple clover, Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, But only one mother the wide world over.
Mother By Nikita Gill
The water of her womb, your first home The body she pulled apart to welcome you to the world. The spirit in you she helped grow with all she knew. The heart that she gave you when yours fell apart. You are her soft miracle. So she gave you her eyes to see the best in the worst. You carry your mother in your eyes. Make her proud of all she watches you do.
A Mother By Christy Ann Martine
A mother wraps her love around the heart of her child, keeping each beat steady through the rhythm of life until wings take shape and it's time for the soul to take flight.
My Heart By Sharlynn N. Manning
She's always been there for me. Just talking to her can make me happy. She tells me of the hard times she's been through In hopes that I won't go through them, too. She's an independent woman of stature and grace. She has beautiful eyes and a lovely face, An audacious strength from deep inside. In her I know I can confide. She's my guardian angel who'll always be A very special part of me. She takes pride in caring for her kin. She gives us hope and things to believe in. If I didn't have her there for me, I wouldn't be half the woman I turned out to be.
Dear Mother By Herman Vymislicky
I'm writing you to tell you that I love you Something I hardly ever do. I never tell you enough how much I love you and It's something I must do. I need to let you know mother how much You really mean to me So I'm telling you now you mean the world to me. I need to thank you for all you do for me. Your unconditional love toward me means a lot to me. You've never turned your back on me and I know it's something you'll never do. Anytime I need someone to talk to You're always there to help me through And anytime I need a favor you always seem To be there, too There's nothing in this world that I could do To pay you back for all you do. When God gave me to you, That's the best thing he could ever do, So this poem is dedicated to you Because I don't know how else to say Thank You.
What Mother Means By Karl Fuchs
"Mother" is such a simple word, But to me there’s meaning seldom heard. For everything I am today, My mother’s love showed me the way. I’ll love my mother all my days, For enriching my life in so many ways. She set me straight and then set me free, And that’s what the word "mother" means to me.
M-O-T-H-E-R By Howard Johnson
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold,
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
A Thank You Note By Lang Leav
You have told me All the things I need to hear Before I knew I needed to hear them To be unafraid Of all the things I used to fear, Before I knew I shouldn’t fear them.
Mother By Lola Ridge
Your love was like moonlight turning harsh things to beauty, so that little wry souls reflecting each other obliquely as in cracked mirrors... beheld in your luminous spirit their own reflection, transfigured as in a shining stream, and loved you for what they are not. You are less an image in my mind I see you in gleams pale as star-light on a gray wall... evanescent as the reflection of a white swan shimmering in broken water.
