A Word From The Pastor
…come in various sizes, shapes and forms. Treasures also conjure up jewels, gems and other valuable items. For me, the month of May is filled with treasures of sorts for a variety of reasons. Flowers and plants are in full bloom. The days are generally comfortable; sunny and warm, not too hot or cold – ideal!
May also means thoughts of mom and Mother’s Day. Which brings to mind what great treasures they are (or were) in our lives. Even though my mom is no longer with me, she is always close by, in my heart. I got my love of flowers and gardening from her. I cherish many wonderful memories of both her and my father. When I reach for those memories, it is like opening a chest full of treasures. Each one precious, with special meaning and importance. I am blessed to have had the parents I had.
This Mother’s Day, if your mother is still living, do something special for her. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive. I am certain she would say, ‘just spending time together is all she needs and desires.’ If being together physically is not possible because of distance or for other reasons, a phone call, face-time or something similar would be a great option. If your mom is no longer with you, treat another important lady in your life – your wife, sister, mother-in-law, niece, aunt, friend, with a special act of kindness. Let them know what a treasure they are to you.
To all moms and ladies, whether you are a mother or not ~ Happy Mother’s Day!
