Treasures In The Garden
We would like to wish all Mother’s a very Happy Mother’s Day. And may all Mother’s who have passed away enjoy eternal HAPPINESS.
A prayer we said for all Mothers around the world, in church this morning:
God of LOVE
listen to this prayer.
God of holy people, of Sarah, Ruth and Rebekha
Holy Mary, Mother of Jesus,
bend down your ear to this request
and bless women of our families.
Bless them with strength of Spirit,
they who have taught our children
how to stand and how to walk.
Bless them with the melody of your LOVE,
they who have shared how to speak,
how to sing and how to pray to You.
Bless them with a place at your eternal dinner table,
they who have fed and nurtured the lives
that were helpless, but embraced in their LOVE.
Bless the women of our families today,
now , in this lifetime, with good things, with health.
Bless them with joy, LOVE, laughter, and pride in our children
and surround them with many good friends.
May the women who cared for young life
be carried one day to Your Divine embrace:
there for all eternity,
to rejoice with family and friends.
This blessing and all graces, we pray,
descend upon the women of our families. Amen.
My word for today is “MOTHERING!”
I remember my Mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. Abraham LIncoln.
