Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought 

by Mary May Larmoyeux

"As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you." (Isaiah 66:14)

As Mother's Day approaches, I am reminded of the importance of a mom.  She teaches the next generation about faith, and values, and love. No job could be more important.

You may want to ask you grandchildren to draw a picture of what mom and home mean to them. It might be fun for you to help them frame the picture, for a special gift to their mom on Mother's Day.

And perhaps you'd like to share the words below with a mom you love. They were written by Mary Williams about her home, and were published in a 1983 edition of Rural Arkansas magazine:

"It has sheltered life. It has seen the joy and laughter of children and the quickness of their running feet. It has seen the tears of those who are no longer young and heard their slowing footsteps. It sighs and sometimes groans with its memories and its years. But it puts its arms around those who come within its walls and comforts them and laughs with them ... It is a reflection of a small bit of heaven. It is home!"

A home like this surely is made with the hands of a mom ... hands that pour out God's love!

Happy Mothers' Day!
