This year Mother’s Day will be on Sunday May 13, 2018. Although my mother is no longer living with us and is at home with our Lord in Heaven, not a Mother’s Day goes by that I don’t think of her and also my wife. Even though my wife is not my mother, she is the mother of my children. So, with that being said, Happy Mother’s Day Mom and my dear sweet wife Deanna. I love you both so much.
In 1868, Ann Jarvis, mother of Anna Jarvis, developed ‘Mothers Friendship’s Day’ along with a committee in order to bring families together after they had been separated by the Civil War. Her daughter would push her agenda forward over the years in honor of the legacy she was leaving behind.
Over the next few decades, the holiday was not an official one but there were small celebrations of it. However, Ann Jarvis died on May 9, 1905, prompting Anna Jarvis to establish Mother’s Day along with the help of Philadelphia merchant John Wanamaker.
The first official celebration of the holiday was on May 10, 1908. The next year, the holiday was widely celebrated in New York and it continued to grow after that over the years.
Make an effort to call your mother, send her a letter or perhaps even get together this Mother’s Day. I am thrilled to be with my wife this Mother’s Day. Even though you are not my mom, I still love you as the mother that you are.
Much love and many hugs and kisses!

What do I do now with my free time since I retired from full-time ministry? Since I spend so much time on my computer reading, I found that I have the ability to write also. I have written numerous sermons but I like the idea of blogging, using short stories or devotional writings to express my experience in ministry.
I have found opportunities to fill pulpits in place of vacationing pastors or vacant pastoral positions. I get plenty of opportunities to teach and that keeps me studying the Bible, which keeps my brain growing spiritually.
I have had opportunities to write devotionals for a major Christian publisher which allows me the opportunity to earn some part-time income. This also is my first time to become a published author. That being said, I believe this has opened up a new channel of income to supplement my Social Security income.
Having created a Word Press website I have been able to post a few blogs of my own, it has been very rewarding spiritually. May you be blessed by my writings.
