Thoughts for the Month of May:
In looking at a scriptural calendars there are five special days we recommend you pay attention to:
NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, Thursday, May 4:
This day is set aside as a day of prayer. In today's world there are many things to pray about. This year, the National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 4th.
MOTHERS DAY, Sunday, May 14:
This day is set apart every year in honor of motherhood. On the second Sunday in Many families and churches make a special point of honoring Mothers.
Mother's Day received national recognition on May 9, 1914. On that day, President Woodrow Wilson signed a joint resolution of Congress recommending that Congress and the executive departments of government observe Mother's Day. The following year, the President was authorized to proclaim Mother's Day as an annual national observance. This year Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 14.
ASCENSION DAY -- Thursday, May 18:
This day celebrates the rising of Christ into Heaven. It always falls on a Thursday, exactly forty days after Easter. It has been observed widely since the A.D. 300's. This year it is on Thursday, May 18.
ARMED FORCES DAY, Saturday, May 20:
This day honors all branches of the armed forces of the United States. Each year it is celebrated on the third Saturday of the year. The date this year is Saturday, May 20.
MEMORIAL DAY -- Monday, May 29:
This day is a patriotic holiday in the United States. It is a day to honor American service men who gave their lives for their country. In most of the Southern states, it is observed on the last Monday in May. This year it will be Monday, May 29. Many have died for the freedoms we have as Americans. We owe a debt of gratitude for all who have given their lives for this liberty. May we do our best to preserve the freedoms they gave their life for.
***KEEP THESE SPECIAL DAYS IN MIND AND GIVE THEM THE HONOR AND RESPECT THEY ARE WORTHY OF.***
A Mother's Prayer:
O, God you are the perfect parent,
You know my children so well, so much better than I,
You know their inner needs.
You watch them growing and truly understand them,
You care deeply for them and love them unconditionally,
For these reasons I ask your help in raising my children...
no, not your help -- more than that.
Lord, you bring them up - I hand them over to you,
Just don't let me get in your way.
Don't let me interfere with your parenting.
But, Dear Lord, when you need human help - USE ME
When they need to hear words of love - USE MY VOICE
When they need comfort - USE MY ARMS
When they need teaching - USE MY MIND
When they need understanding - USE MY HEART
And when they ask about You - USE MY FAITH
So that they too will come to know you as the perfect parent.
