What Is Love  

This is a big question so let us look at one segment of society, our Moms. I was in a store the other day and I heard the screams of a child from the next aisle. The sound was very distinctive. They were in the cereal aisle and the tirade was preceded by, “but I want the Lucky Charms”. The noise started low but ramped up like a siren, gaining to full volume in a matter of moments. How glass was not broken in the store was beyond me. As I came around the corner, I could see so many emotions in her eyes. She was embarrassed over her child’s actions, furious because he was throwing a tantrum and not listening to her request for silence, and exhausted because this was not the first time it had happened that day. I gave her that understanding smile that signalled I had been there and done that and she responded with that skyward sigh that I think all mothers have done. As I stopped to grab something off the shelf, I noticed out of the corner of my eye that she had knelt down beside him, held him by the shoulders, whispered something to him and then gave him a big hug. She did not give into his demands but did let him know that he was loved and forgiven.  

So often, the actions and influence our mothers have in our lives is overlooked and we save one day a year to let them know that we appreciate their role in our lives, but I would suggest we need to remember this every single day of the year. Sunday, I want to focus on all we owe to our mothers but let me share this with you as an appetiser.


She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. 

She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. 

Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” 

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. Proverbs 31:25-31 NLT 

This Sunday, Pastor Todd will bring a message of joy and celebration of mothers. Please join us either in person or online at 10:30 AM this Sunday. The service will be broadcast online on our website (, or you are more than welcome to join us in person at 402 Main Ave. W in Sundre, AB.
