Eulogy for Momma
One of the many things I can say when I speak of my mother is that she loved her family. She would routinely do without so her children could have more. Even as far as wearing worn out clothes so we could have new ones. So I find it fitting to use this passage to define what love is.
1 Corinthians 13:4-10 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.
I believe one of my favorite authors Francis Chan said it best when he said “God’s definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love.” As I look around this room I see that love reflected in the eyes of those that cared for her.
With that we honor her memory by the love she shared and taught to us and we continue her legacy by the love we share with others. Remembering always that indeed love never fails. It conquers all.
