Barbara Elizabeth (Ruzicka) Ponder

June 27, 1953 ~ October 4, 2021 (age 68)


A Mother’s Love

A Mother’s love is something that no one can explain;

It is made up of deep devotion, sacrifice and pain

It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may

For nothing can destroy it, or take that love away.

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,

And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking…

It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,

And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems…

It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,

And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation…

A many splendored miracle man cannot understand

And another wondrous evidence of God’s,

Tender guiding Hand.
