Condolences to nurse Dawn Culp as her furbaby, Clyde Culp, recently crossed the rainbow bridge.
I hope all mothers and ladies had a great Mother’s Day, just as great as mine. Mine was very special and great in many ways.
I began my celebration on Saturday with the men of Rockford Church of God treating the mothers to a special dinner with the best steak cooked by Brother Thomas Taylor and other side dishes by the other men of the church. I don’t believe any other man or woman can cook a steak like Thomas.
We ate, took pictures, shared Mother’s Day memories, and of course saluted Jesus’s mother and other special mothers who have gone to be with the Lord. We had a lot of fun having fellowship together.
On Sunday we saluted all mothers, while Pastor and Lady Hill’s daughters treated us with gifts. Sister Misty Hines treated us with a great message from the book of Proverbs, chapter 31. She didn’t just speak only about virtuous women as most speakers do and leave it there.
She went beyond and explained much more. She said a virtuous woman, mother and a wife is a brave woman who battles and fights for her family. She takes back what has been stolen by the enemy through prayer.
Mothers are the prayer warriors for the family and the church, etc. Sister Hines truly blessed us mothers for speaking more on a virtuous woman.
Pastor Hill gave us more on motherhood and children. He spoke from Exodus 20:12 and Genesis 3:20. There are two births of a mother. Having a baby and having a change. He told the children you cannot be wrong with mother and right with God.
He gave seven ways to honor mothers. A mother is so special and powerful that God created a woman on the sixth day and rested on the seventh. I wish all mothers and children could have heard this message from Pastor Hill. He was on fire.
My Mother’s Day came to a close with some special honors. However, this “close” is not an ending; it’s a sunset. “A sunset is not an ending, but a pause before a fresh start.”
My husband, Butch, did something so special for me. I cannot share it all. My grandson, Chesley, made my Mother’s Day closing with great honor.
Last but not least two great men of God; my pastor, Chris Hill, and my brother in Christ, Pastor Jeff Fuller; honored my work for God, the church and the community publicly (on Facebook), not because of me, but because of them. It touched my heart deeply.
Not too many pastors will do that because of pride, and they are the top man. God is the Most High, and He deserves to be honored through His people. Thank you, men of God. I will continue to pray for you and your church families.
Happy birthday to a very special lady, a woman of God, Pastor Stephanie Fields on May 28. Birthday blessings to all May babies.
