Happy Mother's Day to you all. This is my Sunday to have children's church. I love it. Finished making Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies a few minutes ago. They love their snacks. Of course today we will talk about honoring their mom's and dads, mostly moms today. Beautiful pictures will be drawn and colored for mom. We also are learning a new song.
Sung to "Pop Goes the Weasel"
We come to worship God today.
We come to praise our mothers
For all that they have done for us"
(Children stand and clap) this gets a bit loud
Then we have prayer time where they can pray for mom, dad, grandparents, dogs, cats, goldfish, whatever is important to them. This goes on a long time.
Then I go home take two Advil and think about how sweet and cute they are.
Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Work six days and do everything you need to do. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to God, your God. Don't do any work--not you, nor your son, nor your daughter, not your servant, nor your maid, nor your animals, not even the foreign guest visiting in your town. For in six days God made Heaven, Earth, and sea, and everything in them; he rested on the seventh day. Therefore God blessed the Sabbath day; he set it apart as a holy day.
Honor your father and mother so that you'll live a long time in the land that God, your God, is giving you.
