Lemuel’s mom was a very wise lady
When talking to her king who was her baby.
She shared wisdom even on strong drink
And letting the poor drink not to think.
Yet when she talked about his future queen,
Wow, her words were humble and keen.
A hard worker who cares for the poor,
Instead of scolding the servants about the floor.
Good and busy with her hands and skills,
Instead of throwing around those dollar bills.
Respected and known by a good husband and king,
Instead of nagging him for every expensive thing.
Caring for her family as a mother should,
Instead of expecting everyone else to do them good.
And then of all things she actually words,
“Favor and beauty take back seat to fearing the Lord!”
What an awesome truth revealed in your truth,
A woman of royalty keeping it all about YOU!!
