"In all they do, they prosper." (Psalm 1:3b)

As we grew up (at least in my case), I cannot ever think when my mother was wrong.

I know my mother wasn't perfect, but she was in my eyes.

I trusted her with my life; I depended upon her for almost everything. (Anything else I probably trusted that my father would be there to help me.) I was a very blessed child.

My brother, Skip, and I were very blessed in the mom we had.

This weekend we are giving thanks for mothers. Why is it that after Christmas, Palm Sunday, and Easter-that Mother's Day tends to be the Sunday next highest in attendance? Probably because of that person in our lives who "...delights in the law of the Lord, and on His law they meditate day and night." (vs. 2) That was our mother, Dorothy Worth Waddell Nipper.

Our mom was the one who always had her bible open and would share her faith with us as we grew up. When she didn't have that bible in her lap, she always gave us just and helpful advice, knowing what scripture had to say.

Praise God this weekend for our mothers. Where would we be without them? They brought us into this world - which, among so many other gifts - is the greatest gift they have given us! As much as our mother loved us, even more amazing is the fact that...

...God loves you and so do we!

Gospel Of The Week

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

"I have revealed you[a]  to those whom you gave me  out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word.  Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.  For I gave them the words you gave me  and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you,  and they believed that you sent me.   I pray for them.  I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me,  for they are yours.  10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine.  And glory has come to me through them.  11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world,  and I am coming to you.  Holy Father, protect them by the power of[b] your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one  as we are one.  12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by[c] that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

13 "I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.  14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them,for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.  15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.  16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.  17 Sanctify them by[d] the truth; your word is truth.  18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.  19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

John 17:6-19
