May timely topics-memories, memorials, and mothers

events that typically occur in May include proms, graduations, and weddings. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, those are either not happening or are done vastly different than usual. Some are finding quite creative ways to still create meaningful memories.

May is a month of celebrations and remembrances.

In the United States, we call the second Sunday in May Mothers’ Day to honor mothers. We may not be one, but we all have one, although like me, yours may be deceased.

You may have pleasant or not so pleasant memories of your mother, as nurturing may not come easily to some women, possibly because they did not receive it. Sometimes when that happens, other women step in to bridge the gap. They deserve to be honored also.

I married my husband in May; I almost share an anniversary with the Duchess of Sussex, the former American actress Meghan Markle. She and Prince Harry are parents of a cute baby boy, Archie. And now they live in the United States, California. Their marriage has been strained by outside and internal stressors, as have most of ours. I wrote about our marriage journey in this post

Two words that changed my life.

“mothers,be glad” – Weekend Words

“Buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding.” a proverb

Proverbs 23, ESV

Listen to your father who gave you life,

and do not despise your mother when she is old.

Buy truth, and do not sell it;

buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding.

The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice;

he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him.

Let your father and mother be glad;

let her who bore you rejoice.

St. Augustine quote
graphic from Lightstock

St Augustine of Hippo  ( from Numida, North Africa) is the most important convert to Christianity, next to St. Paul. His mother Monica was a  devout Christian while  his father was a pagan. Monica raised Augustine as a Christian but he did not readily accept Christian belief or baptism.

He was educated in philosophy and rhetoric at Carthage  and taught in Rome. There he converted to Christianity, was baptized, and eventually became a priest and bishop.

Augustine  wrote prolifically, much of which we still have available today, including Confessions and The City of God. (source- Spiritual Classics)
