Mother's Day In San Vicente, 2013


Every year, Rancho Santa Fe Mexico Mission participates in a community celebration honoring the mothers of our town.  This event includes efforts from the local police department, museum, and several other area businesses.  I am not aware that other churches join in the festivities, but we make sure that we are present and counted for when it comes to being a blessing to the moms of our little pueblo.  We share gifts, foods and even give away Christian CDs to help let the moms know that Jesus loves them and appreciates the great and noble work they do being mothers.

Here are several video segments that will help let you see what it is that we do and what took place on the 16th of May, 2013.

Mexico celebrates Mother's Day on the 10th of May but with schedules and plans, this actual event took place on the 16th of the month.  A couple hundred moms came to the central park in front of the police station and drank punch, ate some goodies and got gifts.  There was a lot of music and were even pinatas to entertain the children while the mothers had their party in another area.

All-in-all, the Lord blest all of our combined efforts and poured out many blessings  upon these, all-too-often, unsung heroes of the home and family.  God Bless All who helped to make this a very joyous occasion.  Amen!  Now, on to Father's Day, 2013.

God Bless Our Mothers

No truthful man or woman can negate the magnitude of a mother’s place here on earth and her place in the lives of her children.  Mothers are some of the most important individuals that have ever existed.  Everyone, everywhere, needs to realize this as a Divine reality.  There is a very old, but altogether wise and intensely colorful, Jewish Proverb that says this about mothers, ”God could not be everywhere and therefore He made mothers.”  

When we are young our mothers are like a god.  We see them as all-knowing, helpful, powerful and always present.  Mothers are the women that daily provide us with food, drink and protection.   We don’t always know what to say to our Mothers, to express to them all the gratitude we have for them yet certain great sons and daughters have done this charge tastefully and marvelously.

Countless intellectuals have determined that you cannot really understand all things “Mother.” John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, said this about his mother Susanna Wesley, stating that she was so instrumental in his life that she inevitably affected the movement he started and its direction.  All Americans know that Abraham Lincoln led this nation through perhaps its worst and darkest time of greatest crisis; but who was it that made Abraham Lincoln the man that he was?  He said it was his mother.  "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.”  "I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me, they have clung to me all my life," Abraham Lincoln.

I would suggest to my readers that there is not a person sitting here that in one, five, ten, a thousand different ways has not been forever influenced by his or her mother.  I determinedly suppose that you cannot understand who a person is and what motivates them until you understand their past.  And you cannot understand a person's past without understanding the source that co-created that person along with God, that being their parents, especially their mothers.

Consider these two statements: 

"An ounce of Mother is worth a ton of priest."  Spanish proverb

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

To this, I add a few other simple but personal and heartfelt sentiments…

A Mother is like a million drops of dew that have reached out in the early morning hours to greet her children,

A Mother is a special person that knows a lot about thousands of subjects and still humbles herself so as to be the healer of a cold, scrapped knee or the encourager of a tired and cranky little child.

A Mother is like a four-leaf clover, green and bright, royal and purple, white and pure and fragrant like no other could ever be.

A Mother is as delicate as a field full of butterflies on dandelions and as hard as a rock when it comes to protecting her child from harm.

A Mother is unique and special and knows just what to do when it comes to you.  Trust her and follow her instructions and God will bless you, now and forever.

The Maker of all human beings, (GOD,) is recalling all manufactured units, regardless of make, model or year, due to a serious defect in the primary operation and central components of the human heart.   This is due to a malfunction that was discovered in the original prototype units, code named:  Adam and Eve; which resulted in the defect being reproduced in all subsequent units.   This deficiency has been identified as:  "Non-Adherence to the Sub-sequential-Internal-Morality Programming Norms," more commonly known as, S.I.N.   
Some of the symptoms include:

1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of original programming
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion
7. Fearfulness
8. Idolatry
9. Rebellion 

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this imperfection, is providing factory-authorized repair and service, free-of-charge, to completely correct this shortcoming.   The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden and charges of the staggering cost of these repairs.  And, no additional fees are required.  The entire repair cost has been previously paid for.  The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R.   Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN by following the REPENTANCE procedure.  Next, download, ATONEMENT, from the Repair Technician, Jesus; send it to the heart component of the model you are currently using.  No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will gladly replace it with:

1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self-control 

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E., (BEST Instructions Before Leaving Earth), for further details on how to make the soundest use of this fix.  WARNING:  Continuing to operate the human being unit without this correction, voids any and all manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to grave dangers and problems too numerous to list, all of which will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.  For free emergency service, call Jesus, immediately. 
DANGER:  Any human being unit not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace.  An active SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven, so as to prevent them from contaminating future production at the manufacturing facility.  

Thank you for your attention!
P. S.  Please assist whenever and wherever possible by notifying others of this important recall notice and you may contact the Plant Manager any time you like by using, 'Knee mail.'

(Working for God on earth might not pay very much......but His retirement plan is out of this world!)
