TRENTS MILL NEWS: A holiday focused on your children

Published 1:11 pm Friday, August 11, 2023

Have you spent time with your children this week? It’s always a good day to do that, but Friday, Aug. 11 is a national holiday actually focused on the idea. It’s National Son and Daughter Day across the country. 

This has been around since the year 2000 and while we don’t have a name as far as who came up with it, we can recognize the joy that spending time with family brings. After all, mothers and fathers have their own respective days. Why shouldn’t children get the same? So if you’re able, just give your children a call, send them a message or drop by to see them. Everyone will be better off for it. 

Just a reminder that revival at Cedar Baptist Church runs through this Friday, beginning at 7 p.m. each night. Rev. Billy Swan will preach on Thursday, Aug. 10 and on Friday, Aug. 11, the main speaker will be Rev. Roger Roller, with music by Andrew Bowles.
