MRS. ANGEL LOVE

There is this older lady who always seems to keep a smile on her face;
Her words always have such a sweet and encouraging taste.
She is a beautiful lady and Angel Love is her name;
Her mannerism can be defined as calm and tamed.
Every day, it seemed that she kept an abundant amount of joy in her heart;
She holds a godly love within her that will never depart.
People were confused about her good character because of what they knew;
How could she possess so much joy after all of the tragedy she had gone through?
It seemed as though death and catastrophe hit her all in one year;
How could this lady be happy and not shed one little tear?
One June, her husband died of brain cancer all so suddenly;
Her only two sons died in a car accident within the next two weeks.
That July, she was laid off from a job where she had been employed 20 years;
That August, she lost all of her possessions in a house fire but her joy never disappeared.
She had to live in a shelter for some time and wouldn’t take much help from anyone;
During the time of all of this tragedy, she carried happiness that weighed a ton.
Even the people in her church didn’t understand that joy of hers which held such a shine;
She was always found helping and giving to others time after time.
Now she lives in a big beautiful home with 4 adopted children;
She is often seen fellowshipping with her adopted ones, church members and friends.
I ran into her a little while ago and found myself gazing at her love that was so bright;
In my eyes, above her head, it appeared to be a halo of shining light.
I couldn’t help but to walk over and say, “Mrs. Love, I have a question for you”-
With a smile, she responds, “Well, my dear, I have an answer for you, too.”
I asked, “With the tragedy you’ve faced, what is this happiness that everyone sees?” –
Mrs. Love replies, “My dear child, I live by continuously praying standing up as well as kneeling down on my knees.”

A strong woman
