I will spend it worshipping our Lord, and then go on a picnic with my Mom, sister, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. Unfortunately, my kids are all out of town. My older son will be coming down on Saturday to take me out to dinner.

My mother passed away on 5/01/04. This year, Mothers Day would have been her 75th birthday.
She was and will remain in my heart a treasured gift from God.
My daughter and grands came to town and I'm still smiling. We worshiped, shopped, ate, and laughed a while. I love being a mother,
God is good.
Thanks for sharing,
Lynet

A belated Happy Mother's day to all you Moms, AND to all the Dads who are raising children alone, its difficult to be Mom and Dad! God bless.
---NVBarbara on 5/14/07


Emcee, thanks for your encouragement. Mom's convictions are based on historical evidence & scripture, so I leave that between her and the Holy Spirit. I don't argue against scripture anymore than I argue with my mother. I honor her on a regular basis and, if she doesn't want to celebrate a holiday, I honor her wishes and don't push the issue. As for my son, we have a special bond that isn't defined by a dinner (which I did accept, though I still wished he'd saved his money and spent it on himself, lol).
---AlwaysOn on 5/14/07


Always on::If God instituted Marriage& propagating the species .He also introduced Love & thanks as in the 1st Commandment & also the 4th Honour your Mom & Dad.Sorry your Mom has been mislead & iscreating a pagan tradition which is wrong & False You need to show her the way.Love your neighbour as yourself .Take your sons gift of a dinner Its his love you are throwing in his face.
---Emcee on 5/13/07




I had a wonderful day with my mother, and father.
I'm not wrapped up in the pagan roots, nor will I pay any attention to them.
When Secretary's day rolls around, what will we tie that to, or Boss day? I suppose it's rooted in a pigpen somewhere. So everyone who buys flowers will be rooting around with the pigs. I do think we can swallow camels to avoid gnats. When there are so many crummy things going on in the world, why do you want to ruin a day to honor your mother.
---Trish on 5/13/07


My mother believes mother's day has pagan origins (worshiping Rhea, the Greek false goddess mother of heaven), so doesn't like us to celebrate. Fri. she called to tell me the news had reported this too. Today she spoke to me about scriptures admonishing us not to adopt heathen customs or celebrations. My son wants to treat me to dinner, but I want him to save his money (he's a struggling college student/musician, lol). Hope everyone here has a blessed day, filled with truth and love.
---AlwaysOn on 5/13/07


Ooops--sorry Jack; I guess I misunderstood; now I understand you lol :/

---Emcee on 5/12/07


I'm taking my Mom shopping today. I want her to pick out something she would like.
My backyard is beautiful. I've made a special dinner. This afternoon, it will be Backyard Spa day. I'm giving her the works under the trees. Facial, hands, feet, hair, everything. She's "extra special", and you should let your mothers know it, too.
---Trish on 5/12/07




** Jack, I do understand your point, but please do NOT ASSUME I am a Catholic-basher!!!**

Calm down. I simply used names of people who directly addressed me.
---Jack on 5/12/07


thank you, and Happy Mother's day to all moms everywhere..Even if your not a mom your just as special to the ones who consider you to be a seconed mom..God Bless All
---mary4964 on 5/12/07


I wish my Mother was still alive so I could tell her once more what a great mother she was. Not just on Mother's day, but daily.
---NVBarbara on 5/12/07


Jack, I do understand your point, but please do NOT ASSUME I am a Catholic-basher!!! Where did I seem to sound like that? I have a very nice friend who is Catholic, and so is my stepdad and I respect them.
---Mary on 5/11/07


Dear Mary, Trish, Madison101, RebeccaD, and others,

I put the two postings I did to get people to think.

To think about how UGLY some of the polemics and catchphrases hurled at Roman Catholics sound.

You didn't like it when they were aimed at you? Then don't use them on other people.

I hope I got my point across.

Cynthia...Is that before or after you hit them?

It is a good thing to honor your mother every day, but please don't forget mom on Mothers's day. It will make her feel not forgotten and appreciated.
Jack,

Happy Mother's Day!

---Bernie on 5/10/07


** Dead Work, Jack?
Did not God tell us to honour our parents?**

Yep. It's a dead work, especially if you limit it to one day a year.

I repeat, it's just the cult of the Great Goddess in pop-evangelical terms.

It might be "mother worship" instead of "Mary worship," but do you think God is fooled by mere externals?

Why are you quoting RC teaching to me, Trish?

# 1 "During the 1600's, England celebrated a day called "Mothering Sunday". Celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter), "Mothering Sunday" honored the mothers of England.

# 2 During this time many of the England's poor worked as servants for the wealthy. As most jobs were located far from their homes, the servants would live at the houses of their employers. On Mothering Sunday the servants would have the day off and were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers. A special cake, called the mothering cake, was often brought along to provide a festive touch.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there. You are very precious in God's sight. Mother, the sweetest name I know. I had a wonderful, God-fearing mom and dad, for that matter. I was and still is blessed.
God gave Mothers a very important position in life. Nothing is more important than what Mothers do. Happy Mother's Day
---Robyn on 5/9/07


Jack, setting aside a day of festivities to give your mom a little extra attention is not so wrong, is it? Mom's should be loved everyday, agreed, but there is nothing wrong with a standing yearly brunch with Mom.

Jack, I hope you have/had a good relationship with your mother.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
SECOND EDITION
PART THREE
LIFE IN CHRIST
SECTION TWO
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
ARTICLE 4
THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
He was obedient to them.
The Lord Jesus himself recalled the force of this "commandment of God."
---Trish on 5/9/07


The Apostle teaches: "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 'Honor your father and mother,' (This is the first commandment with a promise.) 'that it may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth."

The fourth commandment opens the second table of the Decalogue. It shows us the order of charity. God has willed that, after him, we should honor our parents to whom we owe life and who have handed on to us the knowledge of God. We are obliged to honor and respect all those whom God, for our good, has vested with his authority.
---Trish on 5/9/07


Jack, I think you've really flown over the coop with this little tantrum you're throwing. You're mad at all of the pops who hold revivals, have an altar call, sing a few hymns, and tell the RC's (RC cola)to throw away the beads. You're mad as a hornet, again, and taking it out on mothers.
Very extreme. My mother is darling, special, I'm going to tell her so, too.
---Trish on 5/9/07


Jack: I usually agree with you, but this time I think you are coming out of left field. Scripture says to honor our mother and father. Spending a day with our mothers, enjoying family fellowship is not dishonoring to God in the least. How could you think such things?
---Madison1101 on 5/9/07


No, Jack. It is a day for the true Mothers out there. I guess you don't do nothing for your mom (if she is still living)? There are many whom have children, but doesn't deserve to be called a mother. First we will go to Sunday School. And then I don't know what my husband and children has in store for me. Madison: cherish every minute you have with your family. I lost my mom in 2001, and I hardly ever see my brother and sisters.

Celebrating Mothers' Day is a dead work and it takes attention off the Creator and puts it on the creature.

It's nothing more than a thinly disguised form of worship of the Great Goddess.
