HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, godmothers and all women who fulfill motherly roles as they provide God’s nourishing and sheltering love, healing touch and wise guidance to the those around them. May our good and gracious God continue to bless them in many ways but especially with all the love, patience and wisdom needed to raise children who are healthy and strong in body, mind, and spirit so they can make a positive difference in today’s challenging world.
