A boy went out to play one day… a new path he chose to walk each day…The path he chose to walk was new to him, he walked into the glade, and there before him was a small lake of blue water…He sat and looked at the waters blue, and wondered how the lake got so far back in these old woods…And as he watched a women came and sat besides the lake so blue. She bowed her head as if to pray, the woods grew quiet the birds did not sing, and clouds covered the sun, and the blue waters turned to gray, taking the beauty out of the day. And as he watched the women prayed , he saw the tears she cried that day, they fell into the waters like rain, so sad a thing he watched that day…And when her eyes ran out of tears, she looked to heaven and thanked the Lord like she new he had heard, saw every tear, and heard each word… The clouds moved back the sun came out, the birds began to sing… she then stood and looked back once more upon the waters blue, she sighed a breath and then turned away, and left the waters as though no one knew….I held my breath as she walked away, I did not see which way she went she just faded into the mist, but I knew with in my heart that I would not see her again, but I would always remember what I had seen that day, I think Angels sent me that way by the waters blue , so I would always tell the story of the day, I saw a lady cry by the little lake with waters blue, so I could tell people like you. As I walked home I wondered what I had seen and why she cried so hard, what had been so bad, and what had made her so very sad and why she was so alone…when at last I was home I saw my mother at the door looking out for me, my mother saw my face and she could tell that I was sad and asked me why, and as she spoke I began to cry… I told her the story of the women by the lake so blue, and how she had cried and asked my mom if she knew…Yes son sit down and I will tell what I know of the women who cries by the water blue, at least what I have heard people say as I lived long out this way. Her story is long but its about a mothers love, the way I feel about you my son, a love that knows no bounds, has always been and always will be there is no end, it reaches out beyond time and space, love once born can never die, and if we make it grow with our hearts and soul and always feed it with all the love that is with in us, then that love grows to a place that fills every corner of our life’s and becomes one with us, so then it lives in every breath we take in, and moves through our thoughts in a thousand ways a day as memories flow through our minds ,of times and places gone by, and the dreams we hold for tomorrow. A mother’s love is beyond all the words that any one could say, it’s a place she holds deep within her heart and nothing can take that away. The lady you saw who cried by the waters blue lost her son to evil men who took him and locked him away 10 long years they have kept him from her, She has no money she has no way to beat these men at their games, OH no I cried we must help the lady by the waters blue, bring him home so they again can be a family, like you mom and me… she looked at me with sadness in her eyes, and said son I wish that was so, but in life each of us a cross we bare, a trial we go threw and this my son is the lady by the waters blue. She told her son when this began that she would go to God each day and ask him please to set him free. She asked the angles to save her tears so God could see how many fall as she cries out for him to hear. It started as a puddle, and then it grew, and grew, until it became a pond, but still the tears came each day till it turned into a lake ,and each day she comes for prayer and yet more tears fall, and some say if she has to she will cry till there is a ocean there. Well mom I had to say there has to be something we can do, she smiled at me with love in her heart and said yes son I know the very best way son, you and me can pray , so we bowed our heads and I asked the lord to smile down at her and her son and asked if he could make things right for her to win this fight, and bring him home, so no longer would she have to cry and no more tears would have to fall, Lord I know no one but you that can help the lady by the waters blue… Someday I pray its soon, I will walk that way again, and look for the lake so blue and pray that it is gone, and left behind is just Gods love and grace, but always will I remember her face and the tears that fell that day the wonderful thing God showed me , something that only comes from God above A Mothers love.
