At heart I believe the Pentecost story is about such things. . . let’s take a look,
Acts 2: 1-13 at least to start. . .
Anyone pulled from a source longs to go back.
And I was thinking I would make a cd of me singing some "mom" songs,
I found that they said in many ways, everything I wanted to say
Then there are the classics like. . .
When I first did the Good Friday, service I used this song, Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys", to go with Jesus saying "Woman be hold your son, son behold your mother. . . " powerful to think about the similarities, never stay home and always alone. . .
Hey mama, when you leave
Then I found one about Mom's being like angels. . . you see gifts from God, who show us what life and love truly are about. . . our first glimpses.
And then there is what we learn from them about life. . .
This next song is by Justin Townes Earle, who is the son of a legendary singer songwriter, and he himself has become like his father, but it is his mother he wants to be like, she taught him wrong from right. . .
And then some are just sweet, with mom on a pedestal, if only all people could be as lucky. . .
Mother Like Mine
But probably the sweetest and most meaningful to me is Dolly Parton's "Coat of Many Colors" as I have a Mom who loves to sew. . . listen to these words. . .
Still gets me. . . let us pray. . .
Thank you for Moms!
