The Best Mother's Day Gift

Attendance was high at church yesterday. There were a lot of visitors (or members who attend only occasionally) sitting next to Mom or Grandma. It made me suspect that quite a few women responded to "What would you like for Mother's Day?" with "Please don't buy me anything; just come to church with me!" I wonder if that's normal at other congregations or if it's particularly important to the women in our congregation. What is more gladsome to a Christian mother's heart than that her children cling to Jesus in faith and desire to soak up more of His word?

  1. It also seemed like we had a few more people there than normal... but it's hard to tell at Mt. Zion because there's a lot of space.

  2. And on the other end of the spectrum we had quite low attendance.


  3. Sounds like a wonderful day Susan. Had almost all my peeps with me. Two were at Grandma's.

  4. Mother's Day attendance rivals Christmas Eve here in Adell. Sad, but true.
