There was an old hymn about a "Lonesome Valley." It
was about Jesus who had to "walk it all alone." "Nobody
else could walk it for him." If you or a friend is in a
lonesome valley of any kind, you DO NOT need to walk
it all alone. We Stephen Ministers are here to walk with
you through your lonesome valley, whatever it is. If you
need someone to walk with you now, call the church
office or talk with a Stephen Leader.
If you are interested in being a Stephen Minister,
walking with someone, please call the church office or a
Stephen Leader: Donna Dennis, Dave Loria, Pris
Peterson or Susan Sapp. 

NEW LIFE TODAY
The origins of Mother's Day are attributed to different
people. Many believe that two women, Julia Ward Howe
and Anna Jarvis were important in establishing the
tradition of Mother's Day in the United States. Other
sources say that Juliet Calhoun Blakely initiated
Mother’s Day in Albion, Michigan, in the late 1800s. Her
sons paid tribute to her each year and urged others to
honor their mothers.
Around 1870, Julia Ward Howe called for Mother's Day
to be celebrated each year to encourage pacifism and
disarmament amongst women. It continued to be held in
Boston for about ten years under her sponsorship, but
died out after that.
In 1907, Anna Jarvis held a private Mother's Day
celebration in memory of her mother, Ann Jarvis, in
Volume 6, Issue 17
Grafton, West Virginia. Ann Jarvis had organized
"Mother's Day Work Clubs" to improve health and
cleanliness in the area where she lived. Anna Jarvis
launched a quest for Mother's Day to be more widely
recognized. Her campaign was later financially
supported by John Wanamaker, a clothing merchant
from Philadelphia.
In 1908, she was instrumental in arranging a service in
the Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton,
West Virginia, which was attended by 407 children and
their mothers. The church has now become the
International Mother's Day Shrine. It is a tribute to all
mothers and has been designated as a National
Historic Landmark.
Mother's Day has become a day that focuses on
generally recognizing mothers' and mother figures'
roles. Mother's Day has also become an increasingly
important event for businesses in recent years. This is
particularly true of restaurants and businesses
manufacturing and selling cards and gift items. 
 Being alone does not mean you are lonely, and
being lonely does not mean you are alone.
 Never do something permanently foolish just
because you are temporarily upset.
 Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to
be right.
 A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can
prove that you don’t need it.
 You don’t drown by falling in the water. You drown by
staying there.
 There are things that we don’t want to happen but
have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have
to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to
let go.
 If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t
change it, change the way you think about it.
 Don’t think of cost. Think of value.
 No matter how many mistakes you make or how
slow you progress, you are still way ahead of
everyone who isn’t trying.
 You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep
re-reading your last one.
 Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak,
sometimes it means you are strong enough and
smart enough to let go and move on.
 Things turn out best for people who make the best out
of the way things turn out.
 If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way.
If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse. 
