Joke of the day:

Daughter: Mum, what's it like to have the greatest daughter in the world?

Mum: I don't know dear, you'd have to ask Nana.

Prayer for Mothering Sunday:

God, whose brooding Spirit brings life to birth and in Christ restores us to new life, bless all mothers as they care for their families. Feed them as they nourish and sustain; strengthen them as they protect and shelter; embrace them as the love and cherish, that children may grow on secure foundations and all may flourish to your honour and glory.
