Photos Taken During Mother/Daughter Brunch
On Saturday, May 3rd, our church celebrated mothers with a Mother/Daughter Brunch. We served fantastic Breakfast casseroles, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, egg and cheese muffins, fresh fruit, and French Toast Bakes. Young girls who accompanied their mothers recited poetry and sang songs in honor of their mothers and all of those who attended. Guests then heard a devotional describing the character qualities of a virtuous woman found in Proverbs 31.
Our theme was Hats Off to Godly Mothers so we invited attendees to wear a hat of their choice to this event. What a wonderful time we had during the Hat Parade as hat-wearers shared why they chose the hat they wore! Guests then selected crafts to create – either a fragrant sachet, tissue paper flowers, or decorating handkerchiefs or hats with trinkets, charms, flowers, ribbons, and scripture. Before closing, mothers received gifts for certain categories – oldest, youngest, mother who raised the most children, who traveled the farthest, and the most unusual hat and to those who contributed in a special way to enhance the event. All young girls chose a beautiful hair-bow as their gift for coming.
Men served the meal, and did a truly wonderful job in assisting women with drinks at the tables and helping them carry their trays of food. These men enjoyed their meal while the women moved to the sanctuary for the program.
Young girls learned what all duties a mother performs on a regular basis through the poems they shared and the devotional presented. They also learned how the Lord honors mothers and women through scripture, through table conversations during and after the meals, and by watching their mothers interact with other moms at this event.
I enjoyed hearing women fellowship with one another, and I thank the Lord for His creation of women and His institution of marriage and family.
