In memory of my Stepdaughter

In memory of my Stepdaughter

My Stepdaughter wrote a few letters and poems to our LORD filling four journals, this is a poem she wrote a few years before she went home to be with Yeshua (Jesus).

Thank you Lord Jesus 4-8-97
for putting this poem
in my heart
"Love never fails"
"Love is patient, Love is kind."
(A pure and Holy gift divine!)
"It does not envy, does not boast,"
(It has a name; the Lord of hosts!)
"It is not proud. It is not rude"
(His faithful Love our sins removed!)
"It's not self seeking"
(Love is free!)
"Love's not angered easily"
"It keeps no record of our wrongs"
(The Love of God is ever strong!)
"It does not delight in evil ways"
(but longs to serve and give him praise!)
"Love rejoices in the truth"
(It's not conceited, not aloof!)
"It always protects. It always trusts"
"It always hopes," (no matter what-
the love of Christ will not give up!)
"It perseveres, "(It always tries!)
"It never fails"
(It never dies!)
