Pastor’s message for May

A Mother’s hands reach out to bless her children
and reach up to praise the Lord.
They’re always loving, often praying, and
ever giving more than she keeps for herself.
A mother’s hands may tire
but they never expire in their efforts
to do good for those she loves.
A mother’s hands may age,
but her influence lasts forever.

I found this verse on the front of a greeting card on a Christian supply site. For many people, this speaks to how they view their mothers. Mothers do so very much for their children when their children are young and even when they are adults. They continue to do so very much when they become grandmothers, also. We can never be grateful enough for all of what our mothers do for us all of our lives.

My Mom died a little over a year ago. We are grateful that her health led her into a care facility at the end of 2019, so she was taken extremely good care of by the staff of that care facility during Covid. We suspect that it would have been a disaster if she had still been living alone in her own home when Covid hit. Instead, they took terrific care of her and doted on her at the facility. The staff there became like family to her.

As we know, we someone dies, there is that year of firsts – birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and memories without them. My Mom’s birthday was in February, and when it came around this year missing her hit me much harder than I anticipated. So I decided that instead of leading worship on Mother’s Day this year, I am giving myself a break. I am taking Mother’s Day weekend off this year. I just need to take care of myself this year as all those memories of her come flooding back.

I hope that you are able to celebrate with your mothers and grandmothers this Mother’s Day. It is a wonderful day to honor those special women in our lives. They continue to be part of our lives forever. I wish you all many blessings on your celebrations.
