Our Mother's Day Celebration was a success.
A wonderful sermon about mothers and what they do for the church was followed by the kids giving appreciation gifts of potted flowers to all the mothers. Thank You Moms for all you do, we couldn't make it with out you.
A quick fact about Mother's Day: Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia who started Mother's Day celebrations also filed a lawsuit in an effort to stop the over- commercialisation of Mother's Day. She lost her fight. Anna had hoped for a day of reflection and quiet prayer by families, thanking God for all that mothers had done.
Quotes from a few of our Presidents about their mothers:
I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. ~Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President
My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. ~George Washington, U.S. President
There never was a woman like her. She was gentle as a dove and brave as a lioness... The memory of my mother and her teachings were, after all, the only capital I had to start life with, and on that capital I have made my way. ~Andrew Jackson, U.S. President
