Remembering My Mother In Law

I married my husband when I was a mere 16 years old. This quickly helped me to grow up and one person that I will never forget is my mother in law. She was very special to me. Never knew a stranger and opened her door to all. She loved to be in the kitchen, hang her clothes outside to dry and lead a simple life. This poem brings back alot of what I remember about her

Bless this Home
Ella Miller

Bless this home, O Lord, we pray
Guard it safely night and day,
Bless the family living here
Bind them close with love and cheer.

Bless the food which is prepared
And each guest with whom it's shared.
Bless the children through the years
Guide them in their joys and tears.

Bless the Mother - tender, kind
And the Father by her side
Bless their pure and faithful love
Making home like Heaven above.

Bless this home, O Lord, we pray
Where we live and walk and play,
Bless us all that ever we
May live O gracious Lord, with Thee
