"Where Has Love Gone"

Through the years and many tears, parents give their love on and on but when the children are grown and gone the years, one must ask just where has that love gone.

Another year a teacher greets a class all new and strives to reach them all and few; then so quickly the year is through; one must ask just where has that love gone.

Then today the sun shines bright to warm our lives and to glow away the night but then alas the day does pass; one must ask just where have those rays gone.

Through the years of love and many prayers, a preacher delivers each sermon anew but quickly find from all the cares himself old and not ready yet to be through; one must ask just where has that love gone.

Love will grow when planted as given away, just as yesterday's sun does glow hope of a brand new day.

It was last night's sweet falling rain that will by it's refreshing, give abundant growth to next year's grain.

So when we ask just where has this love gone, the answer is it has been given away, so that we may pass it on.

Written by Bob Wood

Ecclesiastes 3: 15 ... That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

It is wonderful to know that God is love. This means that real love is eternal. We become discouraged from time to time and our love may feel a little weak but we must remember, it is we that are weak and not love. Love is constant. Couples married many years see their spouse die and they sometimes ponder what was it all for. It was for the children your reared. It was in the love you displayed that others could see love in action. As I look back in my life I remember a few teachers that really influenced my life in a major way. It is not necessarily the college professor that causes you to work for success. I have noticed that one of the most important servants in our churches and secular schools are the ones dedicated to working with preschool and earlier grades. We remember from their teaching memory verses, abc's, songs and much more. I have come to really believe that the best results of love are to be harvested in the future for generations to come. Oh sure there are definite benefits for today but they were made possible by love given long ago. If you feel you need more love in your life, then give the love you have away. Keep it going. May God Really Bless You! Keep shining and be As good as you can be and when you have a chance you pray for me.
