A Cup of Tea

Some folk are proud of what they have attained,
Are quick to tell of this or that degree,
Or, better still, parade a PhD
To show their family status is maintained.
But there was one who lived a humble life;
No attributes of learnÚd scholarship,
But full of honest homely stewardship:
A dedicated mother and a wife.
God called her with a heavenly request
To service, and her homely skills were brought;
"I'll make a cup of tea for you," she thought.
Her home then was immeasurably blessed.
God doesn't call you for your PhD,
Just offer, from your heart, a "cup of tea."
