Dear Lake Wateree Family:
God had so richly blessed Lake Wateree Baptist Church over the past two months. We have witnessed a baptism at our Easter Sunday Sonrise service, and 3 more happing soon. We have also had 7 new members join the Lake Wateree Family. These are truly exciting times seeing God work among us.
The month of May is when we think about honoring our mothers. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 6:20 -22 that we should keep our mother’s instruction in our heart always. 20 My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. 21 Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck. 22 When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you.
Mothers are not always those who gave birth to the child. They are the women who chose to love the child with the love of God. So, on this Mother’s Day remember all the women in your life that fulfilled Proverbs 31: 25-26. 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. 26 When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness.
Remember as the poem "God created Mothers " says:
When God created mothers,
All as lovely as can be,
He made one extra special,
And saved her just for me!
