Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day! May 10 we celebrate moms and almost every church will use that as their basic theme from the pulpit. I think it is great and needed as we are told in scriptures to honor our father and mother. Just for a moment though, please consider another side to this day: those that have lost their mother, those that have had an abusive mother, those that want to be mothers but never will. Please remember them in prayer on this day that may for some be very painful. Remember those that have never known a mother...and perhaps never known a father either. Remember the mothers caught in the 'sandwich generation' - caring for their children while caring for an elderly parent. While you honor your mother this Mother's Day, please say a prayer for those who be at a totally different place in their lives.
