Moms are difference makers. It has been our tradition at Cottonwood to honor you on Mother’s day during the service, and then give you a gift as you exit. Since we are meeting online right now, we wanted a way to honor all moms through giving a special gift to a community ministry. Be sure to watch the preservice video this weekend to see and hear how the Cottonwood family is making a difference in our community in honor of moms!
Speaking of mothers, I am sure if we could sit across from each other over coffee or tea, there would be plenty of conversation over memories of our mother’s raising us into the women we are today. In the good, the bad, and let’s face it – the sometimes ugly, our moms did the best they could to equip us for life. With each passing year of our boys growing and maturing, I have a whole new appreciation for my own moms. Both the mother who birthed me and my step-mom who has loved me as her very own child, each have made a huge impact on my life.
This Mother’s Day, let’s lift praises to the Lord as we acknowledge our moms. If you’re a mother we celebrate you. If you desire to be a mom and you are waiting for the fulfillment of that desire, we pray alongside you for God’s perfect plan in your life.
Until we can be together again, I’m praying for God’s protection over you, His encouragement of you, and His light to shine brightly through you.
