Mother’s Day 2015

May 7, 2015

“Hundreds of dew drops to greet the dawn; Hundreds of lambs in the purple clover; Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn; But only one mother the wide world over.” George Cooper

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and with it will come happiness, celebration, grief, and loss. Happiness and celebration because of the recognition that is due to our mothers for their extremely important role and impact they have had on our lives. Grief and loss because many of us have had our mother’s leave us for the next life and other’s who have not known the gift of children and being called “mom”. The truth is that a woman does not have to be a “mother” to biological children to be a “mother.” A woman is a “mother” to the children she may teach in Sunday School or Wednesday night Bible classes. A woman may be a “mother” to the young women of the congregation. A woman may be a “mother” to the people of the community that the church is located. This needs to be at the forefront of our minds and this is worthy of celebrating along side of the original intent of Mother’s Day.
