Families Without Dads or Moms

When others may think that a family cannot function normally with the absence of a parent, God can give strength to mothers and fathers who do their best to provide for their young children. The Bible says that God is mother to the motherless and father to the fatherless. Single parenting can be successful and fulfilling with faith in God's love and forgiveness.

One Strong Mother

Children are raised without a Dad,
Others may think they had it so bad.
This Mom has turned from
The past to find
That without the Lord's Grace
They would be left behind.

No one could remove
The inborn conditions they faced
Misunderstanding caused
Their loss of Grace.
Now this mom and her young
Will get on with their lives.
Love and forgiveness
Can remove this demise.

A man's bitter regret
What has been done is done.
Many years later
He still loves each one.
He still has the memory
Of their faces that glow
Now older, the children
May not know.

I enjoyed your look at those with one parent to raise them and how by the grace of God it can work. The Bible says that God is a father to the fatherless and He dandles us on His knee as a mother does her child and will be to us as a nursing mother.

Blessed and hopeful look at some difficult life situations.

Great write up. This is very sad when a child has to be raised by one parent. It is amazing how great single parents do while raising children. :)
