Happy Mother's Day

"She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her...
Proverbs 31:26-28
Happy Mother's Day to you all. May you have a blessed day!
~~~~~
Loving God, our Creator, we pray:
For new mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility
For expectant mothers, wondering and waiting
For those who are tired, stressed or depressed
For those who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family
For those who are unable to feed their children due to poverty
For those whose children have physical, mental or emotional disabilities
For those who have children they do not want
For those who raise children on their own
For those who have lost a child
For those who care for the children of others
For those whose children have left home
For those whose desire to be a mother has not been fulfilled
Bless all mothers, that their love may be deep and tender, and that they may lead their children to know and do what is good, living not for themselves alone, but for God and others.
Amen
