Happy Mothering Sunday (UK)
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Happy Mothering Sunday to you and all of your extended family new and old.  ( I admit I had to look it up in Wikipedia)
I hope you had a good service in your new church.

Really lovely thank you. Its been a very difficult transition but feel we are home again now.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Happy Mothering Sunday from this side of the pond.  Glad you are feeling at home again.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

Bumping this for this year's UK Mothering Sunday, since it's Sunday there now (not quite Sunday in US Eastern for a few hours, but we'll overlook that  ;D ).

Celebrate your mum!

(When I think of the word "mum" for "mother," [even though given pronunciation, it makes more sense than "mom"], I always think of that silly radio commercial for Outback Steakhouse that they used to run for US Mother's Day, that had a bunch of men singing in bad-fake Australian accents, off tune, off key, and not in time with one another, about "No one ever loves you like your mum, everything we owe we owe to mum, even when she whacked you on your bum..."  It was meant to be goofy.)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

And, of course, Mar. 25th is the Annunciation--the day celebrating the greatest mother in history.

Happy Mothering Sunday to the mums in the UK and anywhere else that doesn't wait until May to do Mother's Day!  I hope you have a lovely day!  :D

Thank you everyone. Lovely service this morning 3 out of 3 offspring to lunch and I can make at least the first bit of chat. Great day.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
