Mothers Day is May 14, so honoring mothers is the right theme for the May header. As the mothers at the worship service May 7 graced the sanctuary, the photo was taken.

Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” … Proverbs 31:25-30.
