Who Was This Woman?

Updated on August 24, 2009
 

Who was this woman small and humble?

She gave up her home, her family, garments

Her love helped "as others fumbled"

She was obedient no matter how she yearned

Patient and earnest

Meditative and firm.

Only if guiding others was her story told

Her pain she took as a blessing

To honor her mate's mold

Imagine how her own suffering burned within

As she gave of herself

And gave up her turn of worldly things

For forgiveness of sin

Who was this woman that chose to suffer

Who could not do enough like her Savior?

Who was this woman who knew no bounds?

Who saw no lines drawn?

In color, race, religions, or even garbage mounds...

Who was this woman who only would serve?

Who cared for the poorest of the poor?

***

She sweetly kissed the foreheads of the dieing

Held hands while

Comforting babes as they lied crying

She fought for care where ever God steered

She saw all humans

As Gods precious children and dear

Her shoes resembled the pitiable

She ministered to the hopeless and ones in despair

Her sisters were equals valuable as they were

Dwelling in buildings rancid, hardly livable

Shame had no room to be there

Heat and cold was much of the time insufferable....

When the needy needed and none could be found she prayed and prayed

God graced her with blessings that would astound...!

When there seemed to be nothing more to give

Her eyes half shut gave way to miracles and bliss

She had no fear when lepers came near

She had the strength to endure their pain

When others shunned, ridiculed and leered

How could she know such desolation and still be able to face everyday

With out insurmountable hesitation?

Who was this Woman?

To love us all so?

Who was this woman that had Christ's glow?

Was she met with banners as she entered in?

Does her robe flow with pastels and feathers now fluttering with no sin?

I see her crown with jewels of stars

Every one of them that ever has and never has been found

Is her path now paved where ever she floats with velvet of purples, rose, and royal gold?

I see her laughing smiling now

With the radiant light of the Almighty bouncing off her brow

Her feet are now soft

Her hands so smooth

She rest when she wishes in the gardens constantly in Fluorescent bloom

I see the children she loved till they left

The hopeless who hug her because she loved them while they took their last breath

Who was this woman who had so much faith?

Who was this woman with amazing grace?

A woman of pure love

I know she was

A gift to us from Our God head above ...

      It had to be Mother Teresa...a woman apart, one who set a standard that would be impossible to attain but one to strive for.

      What a fitting tribute to one who is still so much to so many

      Angels are on the way to you.

      That was beautiful Lisa. A picture of the woman popped into my head about halfway through, and then a name also appeared when I looked at a picture near the end. St. Mary? I voted this up++, shared and pinned it.

      Dear Readers~

      Wow everyone! Thank you so much!

      To think I thought for the longest time no one was commenting on my writings? Yet here I am finally catching up on all your wonderful comments! The reason being I have not answered your comments recently and in a timely fashion is that I had no idea they were there, because maybe my notifications were set wrong? I do not really know? Yet I am hoping I fixed the problem by playing with the notification buttons. We shall see. But the main thing is that I can tell you how each one of your comments delight my heart and I truly appreciate them all. Have an awesome day everyone!

      This was great Lisa Luv!!!

      No, I was not stumped. LOL.

      I knew right away who your were speaking of, because I have heard so much about Mother Theresa since I was a child. Plus, she is one of my Mother's and Sister's favorite persons of all times.

      Thank you for sharing this lovely poem.

      Take Care,

      N.E.

      I knew from the moment I began reading who this woman was, I wrote of her in my hub,,,The Power of One. There was only one woman this could describe, only one so documented whose grace was more recognized by the touch of her hand than by the accolades given from the President of the United States.

      What a beautifully written and portrayed tribute to the most benevolent woman in recent times....Thanks!
