Mother’s day Trivia
. Mother’s day is celebrated in 46 countries, but on different dates.
. Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia who started Mother’s Day celebrations also filed a lawsuit in an effort to stop the over- commercialisation of Mother’s Day. She lost her fight. Anna had hoped for a day of reflection and quiet prayer by families, thanking God for all that mothers had done. She never married and was childless.
. Japan’s Imperial family trace their ancestry to Omikami Amaterasu, the Mother of the World.
. Ancient Egyptians believed that ‘Bast’ was the mother of all cats on Earth, and that cats were sacred animals.
. In the Bible, Eve is credited with being the ‘Mother of All the Living.’
. In the vast majority of the world’s languages, the word for “mother” begins with the letter M.

When Did You See the Light?
Have you ever had one of those moments that make you realize how great God really is? God tries to get our attention with his still small voice, and when we don’t listen, well, it’s not so small any more.
What is one of your moments when you realized that God is watching out for you?
Vacation Bible School will take place June 24-28.
