We had a good worship service today. There were three candles lighted to symbolize the women whom we know and love: those who have died, those who are still with us, and those women with no biological children but have a nurturing role in our lives. The children’s choir sang our call to worship and the college ensemble sounded good also. The text was John 19:25-27 and title “Behold Your Mother.” Jesus remembered his mother and she stood by him as he suffered and died. That’s what moms do, they stand by us.
Cally, Lucy, and Matt are blessed to have a loving mom in their lives. Lori has been patient and nurturing to them, even though they can be a handful sometimes. We celebrate having Lori in our lives on this day.
