PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!
On the sixth day God created mothers. He had already worked a long overtime day, and an angel said to God, “Lord, you sure are spending a lot of time on this one.”
The Lord turned and said, “Yes, but have you read the specs on this model? She’s supposed to be completely washable, but not plastic. She is to have 180 moving parts, all of them replaceable. She is to have a kiss that will heal everything from a broken leg to a broken heart. She is to be able to function on black coffee and leftovers, and she is supposed to have six pairs of hands.”
Six pair of hands said the angel that’s impossible!
Well it’s not the six pairs of hands that bothers me so much, said the Lord. It’s the three sets of eyes. She supposed to have one pair that sees through closed doors. She has another pair in the back of her head to see all the things she is not supposed to see but needs to see.
And then she has one pair right in front that can look at a child that just goofed and communicate love and understanding without saying a word.
That’s way too much said the angel. You can’t put that many qualities in one model. Why don’t you rest for a while and start over with your creating tomorrow?
No, I can’t, said the Lord, I must finish in six days and I’m very close to creating someone very much like myself. I’ve already come up with a model who can heal herself when she’s sick, who can feed a family of six with one pound of hamburger, and who persuade a seven-year-old to take a shower.
Then the angel looked at the model of motherhood a little more closely and said, “She looks too soft.” “Oh, but she is tough,” said the Lord. You’d be surprised at how much this mother will be able to do.
Then the angel reached over and touched her cheek. Lord, “This one has a leak, the angel said. I told you couldn’t put that much in one model. That’s not a leak, said the Lord. That’s a tear. It is so she can experience all the joy, the pain, and disappointment that I feel for all my children.
This weekend is Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to all who have ever been a mom, or even had a mom. Happy Mother’s Day to those who have fond memories of their mothers, and especially Happy Mother’s Day to those who have less fond memories.
In Christian Love,
Pastor David Trexler
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
PS: Peace Lutheran will be open for worship next Sunday, May 17 at 9:00AM and 11:00AM. We will keep our distance from each other, but hopefully grow closer to God. If you feel uncomfortable in venturing out, I will continue to post weekly messages.
