Legacy Of Love . . .

I'm linking up with my niece, April, for her
Mother's Day tribute.
"The Greatest thing I have learned from my mother..."
I hope you'll visit April today!

I cherish the memories of my Mother, Helen. Her love, kindness, beautiful singing voice, & generous heart are a legacy of love to her family. She loved the Lord. I find sweet comfort in knowing that I will see her again in heaven. I thank God for my wonderful mother.

My Mother taught me so much in her lifetime, but the greatest thing she taught me was to love others just as Christ loves you.

A new commandment I give to you,
That you love one another; as I have loved you . . .
John 13:34

Mothers hold their children's
hands for a short while,
but their hearts forever.

You were blessed with a wonderful mother. Mother's Day is always tinged with a bit of sadness for those of us who have lost our moms. I'm happy for you that you know you will see her again.
