Heaven lies in love

Journals of life become memories and turn into twilights of love. Before we know it time has gone and we wish we had more moments of love. Love is precious. It can’t be bought and it can’t bring back time.

Life is delicious. Just a smile … a handshake and time to say, “I love you!”

Anxiety, anger and worry have no room for life. Only those who love open their hearts.

We are living life here now. Let’s live and make love memories. Live so every day is a great day. Make every day a “Love day.” Then put that day in your heart. It will stay there forever.

Today is the time to forgive and to ask forgiveness … time to restore relationships … a time to live just for today … a time to comfort a troubled soul, a time to make every moment count … a time to right a wrong … and a time to make today God’s masterpiece.

Heaven lives in love. Angels are in a wonderful place, too. There is no sadness, no sickness and no tears there.

I have recently lost my beloved husband and a beloved son. In spite of that they have made moments of love for me and they will always be in my heart. When I hear the cooing of a dove and the welcome of dripping rain against our window pane, I will think about Emmitt and Lance. I will see their photos and I will see the tenderness of their smile and the deep love that flows within them.

I want to thank you dears ones for so many things … prayers, phone calls, cards, letters and food. You have made memories for me and I love you!
