My mother, Sis Myrtle (Red) Owens was a true Christian mother. Especially listen as you browse this page to the words of the Altar Call Musical selection below "I Still Hear Mama Praying" which superbly describes her and many other Christian mothers. The two most important things in life to her were God and her family.

I dedicate this tribute to the memory of my mother

A Song Mama Used To Sing
Altar Call
Chester D.T. Baldwin

"I Still Hear Mama Praying"


I still hear mama praying,

I still hear mama praying;

and the prayers that she prayed,

they're still keeping me day by day;

oh I still hear mama praying for me.

Verse 1:

When mama bowed her head

And knelt down in fervent prayer

She knew how to call on the name of Jesus

For she knew that he'd meet her there

Oh, she thank him for health and for strength

Just to run this Christian race

Oh but she never, she never failed

To pray, pray for children

Saying Lord save them by your grace


Verse 2:

Now the one that you call mama

She may be sleeping in the arms of our God

But the memories of the family devotion

Causes us to always trust in our Lord

Oh, she prayed for the Lord to bless and keep her children

Always let the love of God abide

Oh and the prayer that she prayed will cover

Cover us till we meet her, meet her on the other, other side


Pray for me,

pray for me.


Oh, I still hear mama praying for me.


Amazing Grace

My Mama Used To Say

Mother, God rest her soul, used to come up with funny and inspirational words of wisdom in one liners. I know many of you have similar one liners to share. I'm thinking about collecting them and putting them in a book. Here's some examples:


My Mama Used To Say, Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free.

My Mama Used To Say, I brought you into this world, I can take you out.

My Mama Used To Say, It's good to be on top of the ground instead of the ground on top of you.

My Mama Used To Say, Don't get your meat and bread at the same store.

My Mama Used To Say, No brag, Just Fact.

My Mama Used To Say, My mouth don't make any promises my body can't keep.

My Mama Used To Say, If you see someone without a smile . . . Give them one of yours.

My Mama Used To Say, I'm not into breaking up anybody's unhappy home.

My Mama Used To Say, You don't stop living because you grow old, you grow old because you stop living.

My Mama Used To Say, If you have to eat crow, eat it while it's hot.

My Mama Used To Say, She can't help it, she just has big bones. (On being Over weight). Then she would say, "but she has a pretty face." (She always found something good to say about everybody.)

My Mama Used To Say, It's not the size of the dog in the fight that counts, its the size of the fight in the dog.

My Mama Used To Say, In our home the man is the head of the house . . . but I'm the neck that turns the head.

I invite you to share your Mother's one liners and funny words of wisdom with us.

Phoenix, Arizona

My mom would tell me that she loved me no matter what and that God blessed her by making her a mother. My mom said that all babies are gifts from God to be cherished and taken well care of.

My mom said a lot even without words.

When I was crying she would hold me, stroke my hair and tell me it would be alright no matter what the challenge was. And having her do that made me feel stronger, like it would be alright.

I miss my mom.
