The love a mother has for a son
is without measure.
From the moment that life begins
a mother’s heart is our heart.
Her heart is our life,
until we are born.
Then she carries us in her heart
and in her prayers.

Her love for us is over shadowed
only by God’s love.
As we are in our Mother’s heart
We are in the heart of God.
He carries us in His heart until the day
we are joined once again with Him.

His love knows no bounds,
His love has no limits.
His love is with us
even in our darkest hour.

May God’s love and blessing
be with you in this hour of need.
May 2002 to Dennis

    Beautiful John. I am visiting my mother now as I write. She is 85, and not doing so well.

    It was ten years after my mother died that one Sat morning I picked up the phone and dial her number. It was a rather strange feeling. Maybe she picked up at her new address.

    Treasure the time you have with your mother.

    John, I have written a poem for my mother. It is the hardest poem i have ever written, and I have spent the most time on it than anything I have written. I would love for you to read it. “Mama I remember.” I have been editing it for about 8 years. It is about done i think now.

    John Stevens Jul 6, 2010
    I would love to read it. Some of my stuff has taken two years.

    This is a very beautiful poem John, which touched me on all levels as I read. You have crafted a very tender, loving, heartfelt write for your dear friend in penning this very touching write. The poem is so finely expressed, with maternal love painted so well in the pictorial grandeur which flecks each line. I love how you indicate through your very well chosen words, that the only love greater than a Mother’s is God’s! So true, dear friend. I feel certain your dear friend will always cherish and treasure this poem John and be ever most appreciative of your great kindness in inking it for him. God bless you both. Superb penning John. Thank you so very much for so kindly sharing. I wish you a very beautiful and blessed day – enjoy!

    I cherish your words Mari Very kind, very sensitive. My friend is doing well these days. Happy as if he had better sense. My time was his time when this was written.

    Mari Jul 13, 2010

    During the same time my friend lost his wife and mother, he lost his job, insurance which for a diabetic is a really big deal, a vertebrae in his neck was falling apart which caused great pain. Frankly, it all seemed hopeless but with God, all things are possible. His son was married two months ago, on their card I signed it and wrote, “Love does not keep score.”

    Mari Jul 13, 2010
    THANK YOU for so very kindly telling me about your dear friend, John, bless you both. What a dreadful experience he has been through but how wonderfully lucky he was that he had an earth Angel there to protect him and help him back on his feet again. John, that was an absolutely beauteous quotation you put on his dear son’s Wedding card. You are a wonderful person John – please don’t ever change dear friend. God bless you always.

    John Stevens Jul 13, 2010
    Thank you Mari

    Great tribute John. I especially liked how you smoothly transitioned from a mother’s love to the love of God!

    John Stevens Jul 17, 2010
    It is all in the heart, isn’t it? That which pumps life through out us, our life force. Thanks Leslie.
