Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful moms, grandmas, adoptive moms, stepmoms and "moms-in-love" out there! Moms always seem to know how to bring comfort, whether it's through a hug or "comfort food" like Mamaw Gloria's delicious homemade chicken soup. Motherhood is a noble calling, definitely not for sissies, and certainly worthy of celebration. We hope you'll all enjoy a very happy, healthy and blessed time with loved ones this Sunday.

A thought from the Word...

Proverbs 6:20-21
My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Bind them always on your heart;fasten them around your neck.
