Dear Watermark Church family,

 

This Sunday, May 5, is Mother's Day. Here are some quotes to celebrate our mothers and those in the church who serve as mothers to others.

 

"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her." George Washington

 

"No man is poor who has a godly mother." Abraham Lincoln

 

“My mother was the making of me. She was so true, so sure of me; and I felt I had something to live for, someone I must not disappoint.” Thomas Edison

 

"The impression that a praying mother leaves upon her children is life-long. Perhaps when you are dead and gone your prayer will be answered." D.L. Moody

 

"Homeworking is surely in reality the most important work in the world." C. S. Lewis

 

"The influence of a mother upon the lives of her children cannot be measured. They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness and industry." Billy Graham

 

"For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well." 2 Timothy 1:5
