Mother Daughter Tea Party
OKLAHOMA CITY – The bond between a mother and daughter is very important. Sunday, Feb. 27, dawned cold but clear, with the snow mostly melted and the sun brightly shining. Mothers and daughters from around Oklahoma gathered at Loughridge Camp in Tulsa for our second annual Mother Daughter Tea Party. The year’s theme was “Reflections of Beauty.” Sonia Canó, Southwestern Union children’s ministries director, presented a beautiful worship talk about how important the relationship is between a mother and daughter. She talked about the virtues that Jesus wants us to have and how important it is for us to reflect the image of Christ. Mothers reflect His image, and daughters see the image of Jesus in their moms and reflect that same image. “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30. The mothers and daughters dressed alike in fun party attire, played etiquette games, decorated cookies, ate petite sandwiches and desserts and enjoyed the opportunity to share a special time with each other.
The Oklahoma Conference Children’s Ministry worked hard to make this a special event for our mothers and daughters. In this busy world, it was a blessing to come together and celebrate this special bond of love.
