Tomorrow has a duel meaning. Not only is it Sunday, but it’s also Mother’s Day. So it’s a great time to stop and ask this question: What does tomorrow mean to you? Is it anything special, or is tomorrow just another day? Here’s what it means to me.
Tomorrow is Sunday, a day of worship. It’s an opportunity to gather with other broken, bruised, bored, and burnt-out people to find the encouragement of hope that comes from the reality of Jesus Christ; the love and the life that He offers. It’s a time to bow before God and submit, to pledge my allegiance, to have someone to whom to be thankful for all of the blessings I enjoy every single day.
It’s a sacred moment and a sacred day; a day that you need to pick back up and elevate to its place of sacredness because you need it. You need to be recharged and renewed, and the only way to do that is to gather with other people to worship God. It almost never happens alone. So join us this weekend at The Gathering. It will be a special time. I promise.
It also means that it’s Mother’s Day, the day to honor our mothers for the sacrifice that they’ve made for us. So Happy Mother’s Day, Mom; for giving me life, even though I was born in Barren County.
It’s also a great time for me to thank my wife, Paula, for the amazing mother that she is. The love and sacrifice that I’ve watched her make over these many years has been a standard by which I’m able to judge human love. It’s a great day.
If, for some reason, your memories of your parents aren’t good, tomorrow you can start making good memories, better memories. It’s all up to you.
Tomorrow can be just another sad workday, a day to be depressed, overeat, sit around, and be isolated. Or it can be the day you get up, get out, and gather with other people who believe that life is to be lived to its maximum and it is indeed good.
