Some Bible birthday verses for mothers include Deuteronomy 5:16, "Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you," and Isaiah 66:13, "As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you." A birthday poem example is, "Nobody can fill the unique place you do."
Any appropriate verse, such as Eileen Bailey's "A Great Mother" or "A Mother Like You," or "All You Are to Me" by Jessie Sanders, may be added to a birthday card for a mother. Some classic poems about mothers that are useful for both birthdays and Mother's Day include William Blake's "The Little Boy Found," Anne Bradstreet's "Before the Birth of One of Her Children" and Christina Rossetti's "Sonnets are Full of Love." Include an explanation about how the poem or Bible verse pertains to the relationship or relates to the recipient.
Make the card more special by inserting a small gift, such as an attractive handkerchief. The card can feature a vintage or personal photo, surrounded by a unique frame, to double as a gift. Floral cut-outs, scraps of wallpaper and yarn embellishments can be added to highlight the poem on the front of a card, making it into a piece of art for the mother to display.
