Greetings: May is the start of summer, flowers are blooming, and you can finally begin entertaining outdoors again. With many people being vaccinated, we are looking forward to a return to our church services. God has blessed us by giving the scientist the knowledge to develop the vaccine. The biggest event this month is Mother’s Day. The love of a mother is never exhausting. It never changes--it never tires--it endures through all; in good repute, in bad repute, and in the face of the world's condemnation, a mother's love still lives on. Her children rise up and call her blessed (Prov.31:28). H.W. Beecher said: “A mother’s heart is the child’s classroom.” The Lord has blessed us with Mothers therefore let us always honor them from our hearts. Mother’s, I believe that your love, even at its best, is only a shadow of the love of God, a dark reflection of all that we can expect of Him, both in this life and the next. I exhort all mothers and mothers at heart to pray for your children daily, and they will see you as a prayer warrior on their behalf. Let us give Praise to all the mothers and mothers at heart who fear the Lord because she is blessed, and God is pleased as she watches over the ways of her household. In the wisdom of God, the family is the most important institution He created. As goes the family so goes the cities, the nation and the world. Mothers help shape their children who in turn shape the world. Another event this month is Mental Health Awareness Month. Memorial Day, Monday, May 31st. A Federal Holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties while serving in the United States Armed Forces. We who are born again are in the army of the Lord. We should always put on the whole armor of God and daily fight the enemy of God.
