Message of the Month - "Moms of her Children"
by Dr. Roy "Skip" Miller
1908 - Mother’s Day is observed for the first time at Philadelphia. Suffragist-temperance worker Anna May Jarvis, 44, attended a memorial service last year at the Methodist Church in Grafton, W. Va., for her mother Anna Reeves Jarvis who died at Philadelphia May 9, 1905, conceived the idea of an annual worldwide tribute to mothers.
1913 - Pennsylvania makes Mother’s Day a state holiday.
1914 - The first national Mother’s Day is proclaimed by President Wilson.
In the Holy Scriptures, we find examples of many women, mothers, who have played powerful roles in God's plan for the salvation of man.
Eve, the first woman and mother, was given children. And from those children came the descendants that brought forth Abraham and Sarah, Isaac, Moses, and Joseph the step father of Jesus.
Remember Deborah, who was a judge over all of Israel, a prophetess, a spiritual leader and a mother.
Remember Ruth, Naomi, and Rizpah whose two sons were sacrificed to the Gideonites for restitution.
In the New Testament, we hear about Elizabeth mother of John the Baptist, Mary mother of James and John, Prescilla and Lois and Eunice Grandmother and Mother of Timothy. These along with many many others. And of course Mary the Mother of Jesus.
Here is to you, to the Mothers, the Moms of her children!
Mother’s May Day!
A Happy Mother’s Day Poem
Dr. Roy "Skip" Miller
Mother’s day is the second Sunday in May.
Mother’s day is to honor our moms and to say,
I love you, and in my heart you will stay.
Mother’s day comes but once a year.
A mother’s day never ends and its clear,
That on this day, I wish to bring you good cheer.
Mother’s day comes when flowers bloom.
Her child grows up and always too soon,
To catch her breath as we reach for the moon.
Mother’s day should not be just one Sunday in May.
Mothers should be honored day after day.
My mother today is your day, now rest, go, and play.
Prayer of Thanksgiving of God's Love
Dear Lord, Father God in heaven, the Maker of all creation, Holy and awesome is Thy name. Oh, how my heart sings that You should love me so! You, oh Lord, have given us such a precious gift in Your Beloved Son Jesus the Christ. For none was found more perfect in all of heaven and earth and beneath the earth but our Lord Christ Jesus. That He should die for our sins and cover us with His atoning blood. Yet death could not hold Him, Sheol could not contain Him for He rose from the grave and appeared, talked and ate with the saints until He ascended to sit at Thy right hand and has been given everything and everyone in all the heavens and earth. My I contiue to seek Your face oh Lord. To draw closer in my walk with Thee and keep all that my Lord, my God commands. For Thou art my Master, my Father in Heaven. May I glorify you in all that I do! Of this I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Submitted by: SM
