Time is not measured by the years that you live But by the deeds that you do and the joy that you give- And each day as it comes brings a chance to each one To love to the fullest, leaving nothing undone That would brighten the life or lighten the load Of some weary traveler lost on Life’s Road- So what does it matter how long we may live If as long as we live we unselfishly give.
May tender memories soften your grief, May fond recollection bring you relief, And may you find comfort and peace in the thought Of the joy that knowing your loved one brought… For time and space can never divide Or keep your loved one from your side. When memory paints in colors true, the happy hours that belonged to you.
God, teach me to be patient, teach me to go slow, Teach me how to wait on You when my way I do not know. Teach me sweet forbearance when things do not go right So I remain unruffled when others grow uptight. Teach me how to quiet my racing, rising heart So I might hear the answer You are trying to impart. Teach me to let go, dear God, and pray undisturbed until My heart is filled with inner peace and I learn to know your will.
A Mother’s love is something that no one can explain, It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away
After the clouds, the sunshine; after the winter, the spring; after the shower, the rainbow; for life is a changeable thing. After the night, the morning, bidding all darkness cease, after life’s cares and sorrows, the comfort and sweetness of peace.
Love is like magic and it always will be. For love still remains life’s sweet mystery! Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange and there’s nothing in life that love cannot change! Love can transform the most commonplace into beauty and splendor and sweetness and grace. Love is unselfish, understanding and kind, for it sees with its heart and not with its mind! Love is the answer that everyone seeks… Love is the language, that every heart speaks. Love can’t be bought, it is priceless and free, love, like pure magic, is life’s sweet mystery!
Grief is a solitary journey. No one but you knows how great the hurt is. No one but you can know the gaping hole left in your life when someone you know has died. And no one but you can mourn the silence that was once filled with laughter and song. It is the nature of love and of death to touch every person in a totally unique way. Comfort comes from knowing that people have made the same journey. And solace comes from understanding how others have learned to sing again.
In this troubled world, it’s refreshing to find someone who still has the time to be kind. Someone who still has the faith to believe that the more you give, the more you receive. Someone who’s ready by thought, word, or deed to reach out a hand, in the hour of need.
You cannot change reality, but you can control the manner in which you look at things. Your attitude is under your own control. Weed out the negative and focus on the positive!
God grant me courage and hope for everyday, faith to guide me along my way, understanding and wisdom, too, and grace to accept what life gives me to do.
No matter how steep the mountain – the Lord is going to climb it with you.
When you ask God for a gift, Be thankful if he sends, Not diamonds, pearls or riches, but the love of real true friends.
When you are in troubled and worried and sick at heart And your plans are upset and your world falls apart, Remember God’s ready and waiting to share The burden you find much to heavy to bear– So with faith, “Let Go and Let GOD” lead your way Into a brighter and less troubled day
A mother’s love is like a beacon, Burning bright with Faith and Prayer, And through the changing scenes of life, We can find a haven there.
The way to real growth is not to become more powerful or more famous, but to become more human and more tolerant.
In everything both great and small, We see the Hand of God in all.
A mother’s love is something that no one can explain — It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain. It is endless and unselfish and enduring, come what may, For nothing can destroy it or take that love away. It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking.
Never borrow sorrow from tomorrow.
ADVERSITY CAN DISTRESS US OR BLESS US The way we use adversity is strictly our own choice, For in God’s Hands adversity can make the heart rejoice – For everything God sends to us, no matter in what form, Is sent with plan and purpose for by the fierceness of a storm The atmosphere is changed and cleared and the earth is washed and clean.
Comfort comes from knowing that people have made the same journey. And solace comes from understanding how others have learned to sing again.
Stop wishing for things you complain you have not, and start making the best of all that you’ve got.
A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above, a handful of happiness, a heart full of love.
There’s always a tomorrow and the hope of something new.
It takes a Mother’s Love to make a house a home, a place to be remembered, no matter where we roam.
Love is the answer, that everyone seeks…Love is the language, that every heart speaks.
