Scripture for Sunday May 12th, 2019
After this I beheld, and, lo,...
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Happy Mother's Day
Mother's love is like an island
br>In life's ocean, vast and wide,
br>A peaceful, quiet shelter
br>From the wind, the rain, the tide.
br>It is bound on the north by hope,
br>By patience on the west,
br>By tender counsel on the south,
br>And on the east by rest.
br>Above it like a beacon light
br>Shine faith, and truth, and prayer;
br>And through the changing scenes
br>I find a haven there.
"Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her. Many
daughters have done virtuously, but you
excel then all. Favor is deceitful, and
beauty is vain: but a woman that fears the
LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the
fruit of her hands; and let her own works
praise her in the gates."
