                                       Bryon Leathers     Morgan Wilson
―The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
    Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
   There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. ―

                                                                  Psalm 19:1-3 (NIV)


There is a language in nature that speaks of the existence of God. It is the
language of order, beauty, perfection, and intelligence. Some time ago a
scientist told me that when he gave serious thought to the majestic order of
the universe and its obedience to unchanging law, he could not help but believe
in God. He had become aware that God was speaking through nature.

God speaks in the certainty and regularity of the seasons; in the precision of
the movements of the sun, the moon, and the stars; in the regular coming of
night and day; in the balance between man’s consumption of life-giving oxygen
and its production by the plant life of the earth; and even in the cry of a new-
born child with its ever-new dimension of the miracle of life.
  Prayer for the day

  The beauty of this day will be a constant reminder of the magnificence of You, God.

Selections from Proverbs 31

 A wife of noble character who can find?
     She is worth far more than rubies. …

   She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is
         on her tongue. ..

  Her children arise and call her blessed;
         her husband also, and he praises her: …

   Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
        but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised …

   Give her the reward she has earned, and let her
         works bring her praise at the city gate.
                     I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.
                           They have clung to me all my life. ~Abraham Lincoln

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 She's way out of date!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?

 Q----"If You Could Change One Thing About Your Mom What
 Would It Be?"
 1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean.
 I'd get rid of that.
 2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my
 sister who did it and not me


                                                  Question----"Why Did God Make Mothers?""
                                                  The answers:
                                                  1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
                                                  2. Mostly to clean the house.
                                                  3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.


                                                 Q----"What Would It Take To Make Your Mom Perfect?"
                                                 1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some
                                                 kind of plastic surgery.
                                                 2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.
