May ~ June 2017



April showers bring May flowers.  At least that is how the saying goes.  Well I guess we are going to have plenty of flowers this May.  All the better to celebrate and decorate Mothers and those who have served our country in the Armed Forces.  The month of May will focus our attention upon the women who have blessed our lives, mothers, wives, grandmothers, and other special ladies.  Winston Churchill once said, “An ounce of Mother is worth a pound of preachers.”  Ouch!  But truthfully, he is more on target than I’d like to admit.  This Mother’s Day let us never forget those women who have helped shape our lives and point us toward God.  We also want to give thanks to those men and women who have served our country in the military.  Freedom is worth fighting and sacrificing for.  This Memorial Day, we will pause to give expression of our thanks to those who have served and died in keeping our nation free.  One of the reasons that mothers have had the freedom to shape our spiritual lives is because men and women in the military sacrificed to perpetuate that freedom.  God Bless America; God Bless our Mothers; and God bless those who paid the price to allow us to say God Bless America.                                           Pastor Mike
