Memories

A time to live*…
To each of us, the precious gift of life is given.
Each breath we take, each beat of our heart, Is like the ticking of a clock…
“one second…one minute…one hour…one day…one month…one year…one life time.”
 
A time to die*…
For each of us, our earthly life ends. We leave behind the footprints of our life.
Each word we spoke…each look we gave…each thought we thought…each deed we did…
Is our self-portrait on the canvas of life.
 
 A  time to mourn*… a time to weep*…
For each of us, there is a time when we say goodbye to those we love…
And for those we love, there is a time when they will say goodbye to us…
In each, memories are left behind…memories of a life lived…a life loved.
 
Memories…
The” footprints” that we leave on another’s heart.
 
Memory Bears…
Personal creations made from your loved one’s favorite clothing…
For you to “hold and hug” as you remember.
 

 “May your memories linger always”

 *From Ecclesiastes, chapter 3
