How exciting! A brand new, made up, job well done!, poem style by my bloggy friend, Robin! Today we make history together. Robin made it; We’ll write it. It’ll be recorded in the halls of internet fame forever: Cuz you know, once you blog it you can’t take it back. 😛

I’ve chosen to write my Pensieve about Motherhood. A challenge since the poem utilizes each of the five senses. But I believe I can do it. Let’s see:

Proverbs 14:1 “The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish tears it down with her own hands.”


Envisioning each hope for her children as clearly as her own, a mother’s eyes unique alone

Laughing, sharing, correcting, teaching and guiding- a mother’s words imprinted on the hearts of the young

A mother’s hands doing double duty to discipline and comfort must never stop with the work to be done

No scented candle can compare with the fragrance of a baby’s embrace, a nuzzled neck at bedtime prayer, or the aroma of a wisely built home

The fruits of these labors sweet, a passion fruit unrivaled in all else of life.

Visit Robin @ Pensieve to see more! I can’t wait to see what everyone else wrote and I’m sure Robin can’t either. The above photo is of a statue by Charles Grafly at Wichita State.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
