HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
M ..... is for the million things she gave me,
O ...... means only that she's growing old,
T ...... is for the tears she shed to save me,
H ........... is for her heart of purest gold;
E ... is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
R .. means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell ...... MOTHER
A word that means the world to me.
Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
THE IMAGES OF MOTHER:
4 YEARS OF AGE My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE Naturally, Mother doesn't know that either.
16 YEARS OF AGE Mother, She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE That old woman, She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE Wish I could talk it over with Mom once more.
TIME TO PLANT A GARDEN
( Some things your Mom may have taught you )
1. SQUASH GOSSIP
2. SQUASH CRITICISM
3. SQUASH INDIFFERENCE
PLANT THREE ROWS OF SQUASH:
PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS:
PLANT SIX ROWS OF LETTUCE:
1. LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER
2. LET US BE FAITHFUL TO DUTY
3. LET US SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES
4. LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL-DOING
5. LET US BE OBEDIENT IN ALL THINGS
6. LET US BE UNSELFISH AND LOYAL
NO GARDEN IS COMPLETE WITHOUT TURNIPS:1. TURN UP FOR CHURCH, PRAYER SERVICE, BIBLE
2. TURN UP WITH A SMILE, EVEN WHEN THINGS ARE
3. TURN UP WITH DETERMINATION TO DO YOUR
BEST FOR GOD'S CAUSE AFTER PLANTING, MAY YOU
"GROW IN GRACE AND IN KNOWLEDGE OF OUR LORD
AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST"
