My Lord's & Mother's Day!

Here in Canada, and in USA, this past Sunday was Mother's Day.  In UK and some other countries celebrate Mother's Day during lent.  But, we are different, here.

It may sound unusual to you, but I usually give my daughters a card and a small gift each Mother's Day.  I know, this is truly backwards, but I do it.  After all, they are mothers, too!

As usual, I was prepared and ready for the occasion.

Being up early, I went on FB for a short time, before preparing for church and found my daughter B, had blessed me with a Mother's Day greeting, already.  To be honest, I was shocked she was up that early, but it was heart-warming to read her wishes to me.

Knowing B was up, I called her and let her know I was dropping by on my way to go worship.  We had a short visit, along with one of her sons, J... my grandson!  After visiting and wishing each other Happy Mother's Day, I was off.

From time to time, I worship at other churches, in addition to my own church.  This day was one of those days. 

So, I made my way to Heritage Park Alliance Church   www.hpac.org where I attended their 9:00 a.m. worship service.  Luckily, I was able to reach the lady I needed to see, to be able to purchase a ticket for an upcoming event that will be happening, Friday.

The worship service was wonderful.  Since they film their services, I asked if they place them on Youtube, and was happy to hear that indeed, they do.  Here is a LINK for you to access the service, if you'd like to see/hear it!

During the service, I couldn't help but think of my deceased husband, Gordon.  A song he loved, was sung.  I love this song too, but whenever I hear or think of it, I always think of him. 

The song was Amazing Love - You Are My King, by Chris Tomlin.  Here is a LINK to the song.  Here are the lyrics:

Amazing Love - You Are My King, by Chris Tomlin

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken,
I’m accepted, You were condemned.
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.
(Repeat x2)

(Chorus)
Amazing love,
How can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love,
I know it’s true.
It’s my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken,
I’m accepted, You were condemned.
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.

(Repeat chorus x2)

You are my King
Jesus You are my King
(Repeat x4)

(Repeat chorus x2)

You are my King
(Repeat x8)


Before I tell you more about my Lord's day worship, I will have to continue, tomorrow.  See you, then!


Until next time...
