A History Of Mother’s Day

A History of Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day, in one form or another, has been around a long time.
In ancient Greece, a celebration honoring mothers occurred every Spring.
In the Middle Ages, a custom called Mothering Sunday began when children, who often left home early to learn a trade or become apprentices, would be released from work every year on the forth Sunday of Lent to attend church with their families. As they returned home, they often took cakes or little gifts to their mothers. This was termed “going a-mothering.” To this day, Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
Anna Jarvis had been particularly touched at age twelve while listening to her mother teach a Sunday school class on the subject “Mothers in the Bible.” Mrs. Jarvis closed the lesson with a prayer to this effect: I hope and pray that someone, sometime, will found a memorial mother’s day. There are many days for men, but none for mothers.

Anna never forgot that moment, and at their mother’s graveside service, Anna’s brother Claude heard her say “… by the grace of God, you shall have that Mother’s Day.”
On the second anniversary of her mother’s death, May 12, 1907, Anna led a small tribute to her mother at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Gafton, West Virginia. She donated five hundred white carnations, her mother’s favorite flower, to be worn by everyone in attendance, no more than a third of the fifteen thousand people who showed up could be seated.
After that, things begin to take off. Various states jumped on the bandwagon, officially proclaiming a Mother’s Day each year, and, in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially established Mother’s Day a national holiday to be held on the second Sunday of May.
A woman is the only way a child can be brought into the world. After Adam and Eve,
THANK YOU TO ALL MOTHERS
LOVE
SACRIFICE
CARE
HEAL THEM OF THEIR HURT/REGRETS

WE ARE ALL HERE BECAUSE OF A MOTHER’S INFLUENCE

NONE OF US ARE WHERE WE ARE JUST BECAUSE OF OUR OWN EFFORTS.
((Mother who complimented her son’s drawing when she came in))
After Adam and Eve, every other child was born of a woman.
2 Timothy 1:5 NKJV
when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.
The word of God is the the nail and right living the hammer that send the nail home. Lois and Eunice for years lived their faith before Timothy
(((I married my mother. Sweetest kindest loyally devoted woman)))
A Mother spends the greatest amount of time with her child during the most formative years of their lives. INVEST YOUR TIME. USE YOUR INFLUENCE.
2 Timothy 3:14–17 NKJV
But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned
2 TIMO
2 Timothy 3:14–17 NKJV
But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
A Mother must grow in her love of the word. SHE CAN ONLY GIVE WHAT SHE HAS GOTTEN AND PASS ON WHAT SHE POSSESSES.
A Mother must grow in her love of the word. She can only give what she has gotten, only pass on what she possesses.
Mother’s give husbands a reason to fight and children an examle to follow.
