  15. Nadine and Family ,
    2 Corinthians 7:6,7 Nevertheless God, comforts those that are cast down,

    A Mothers Love

    A Mother’s love is something
    that no on 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 . . .
    It believes beyond believing
    when the world around condemns,
    And it glows with all the beauty
    of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
    It is far beyond defining,
    it defies all explanation,
    And it still remains a secret
    like the mysteries of creation . . .
    A many splendored miracle
    man cannot understand
    And another wondrous evidence
    of God’s tender guiding hand.

    All our Love to you and the family
