Celebrating Mother's Day at The Church of the Epiphany, Gurgaon

On the occasion of Mother's Day, members of the WFCS conducted the service in the Church of the Epiphany, Gurgaon. What caught my attention were the words in the reponsive  reading text which read as follows:

Mothers come in many different forms, and today we celebrate them all.
Thank God for Mothers!
Everyone here is either a son or a daughter.
Thank God for my Mother.
For those women who have joined God in Heaven and whom we miss dearly
Here on Earth,
Thank God for the Mothers of the past.
For Every woman who is working day and night to raise her children right now,
Thank God for mothers of today.
For all women who are expecting, but aren't quite mothers yet,
Thank God for the soon to be Mothers.
 For the women who took in other's children  through adoption and foster care,
Thank God for the Mothers full hearts.
For those women who have lost a child to death and must carrry on,
Thank God for the Mothers who are so strong.
For those women who have desperately wanted to have children of their own
But chose instead everyone else's,
Thank God for the Mothers in Spirit!
We thank you Lord for the women who influenced our lives in so many ways.
We pray that we would honour them in everything we do. AMEN!
