  • Special blessings to moms who share faith

    To the editor:

    One day, as Jesus left the temple, He saw a blind man. The disciples asked Jesus, “Why was this man born blind? Was it a result of his sins or those of his parents?”

    “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life” (John 9: 1-3).

    Like the blind man, every one of us was born the way we were born so that the work of God may manifest itself through us. We were purposefully designed by our Creator.
