Frances Matney Woodard (1922 – 1991) was born in Huntington, Texas the eldest daughter of a Methodist minister. After working for the US Military during World War 2, she attended and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After marrying, she settled in Longview, Texas where she was very active as a Sunday school teacher, youth & children’s choir director, church secretary, choir member, songwriter, and soloist at her Church and throughout East Texas.

She was a Spirit-filled believer who loved the Lord. She was a prolific writer who dedicated her last years in this world to writing songs and poetry, many that were never distributed or published outside the family. I am very proud to share some of her writing with the world. I pray that it blesses you. — Harrison Woodard


A Mother’s Day Wish

By Frances Matney Woodard

(1922 – 1991)

Some mothers are sweet and dear

Some are full of cheer

Some cook delicious food

Some occasionally seem rude

Some get busy and snappy

Some always seem so happy

This day is for every kind

To keep this thought in mind

I bet all those above

Belong to some child they love

And today none will be blue

If someone says, “I Love you.”
