Above all, love each other deeply,       

              because love covers over a multitude of sins.

~I Peter 4:8~

Quote that I ran across yesterday –

Love the people

God gave you

Because He will

Need them back

One day.

I have a long list of people I have loved who no longer walk the face of this earth.  Some were family member, but others were special friends.  Once they are gone from this earth, I can only plan to see them in heaven one day, but when I get there it will be wonderful to again see all of these people who touched my life.  We have to invest our lives in others to realize how important they are to us.



Oh, what precious memories I cherish!
