Hope you are all having a fantastic day.
At 9:30 I went to church in our village for a well-attended service led by Nicola. Maureen was on the organ and we sang a few songs including the following one: He has the whole world in his hands, I’m humming it now. After the service, we all gathered for a chat and the enormous apple cake that my friend Lilly baked disappeared very quickly!
This was the Gospel of today’s service.
Jesus said, “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.”
After church, my hubby prepared a lovely Mother’s day diner for both of us, some smoked salmon and pasta. This morning our girls wished me Happy Mother’s day and I feel much blessed, praising the Lord for his goodness.
At 6pm, my friend Lilly is meeting me at home and we’ll walk to the Bank House for a ‘Mothering Songs of praise’ that starts at 7pm. So if you are near Hixon, Weston, Sandon, Salt, Stowe by Chartley or Gaeton and Fradswell, do come. It will be fun!
