  4. 4. LIFE QUOTE – “Did you know there was another ‘mother’s day’ in May? The Visitation falls on May 31. This day commemorates the visiting of two mothers, Mary and Elizabeth. Both experienced an ‘unplanned’ pregnancy. Both their babies were still in their wombs. Both trusted God in seemingly impossible situations. Mary had said, ‘Let it be to me according to your word’ (Luke 1:38) and Elizabeth also acknowledged God’s presence in her pregnancy (Luke 1:25).” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life This “Life Quote” is from Lutherans for Life –
