I am in recovery mode after a very busy weekend! I spent all day Friday decorating for our Mother ~ Daughter luncheon at our church. I had a couple of ladies help me get things set up, but my mind was just spinning with all of the last-minute details. I was worried that I would overlook something important, but thankfully I had written everything down on a very long list that I referred to constantly.
Our luncheon theme was "Vessels Unto Honour" based on 2 Timothy 2:21, "If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work."
Our special guest speaker, a pastor's wife, did a wonderful job sharing some practical ideas on how we can be used by God in our everyday lives.
My camera batteries died before I got many pictures taken, but here are a couple from the fellowship hall that I took just before our meal. We used lots of flowers and greenery. The rest of the program took place in the main auditorium. We had a variety of vessels and pottery around the platform, but unfortunately I didn't get pictures. It looked so lovely!

The best part of the day was having my mom with me. She drove 8 1/2 hours to spend the day with me and the girls. Thank you, Mom! I was so busy running around that I didn't get to spend much time with her, but it was still great to have her with us.
Mother's Day was actually more relaxing for me. We had good services at church with quite a few visitors for Mother's Day. Several special moms were recognized with a beautiful rose: the oldest mom present, the mom with the most children present, the mom with the most visitors present, and the mom with the youngest child present.
Mr. C and the kids took me out for lunch after church. I had requested Cracker Barrel, but apparently a couple hundred other moms picked the same place. :( We headed down the road a bit farther and found a nice restaurant with delicious food and a much shorter wait time. :) I even got a catnap before heading back to church for the evening service.
I plan on getting some R & R on Monday. I hope you all have a great week!
