FC: In God's Loving Arms | Sherry Lynn Potter
1: Sherry was a loving mother, a caring sister, a wonderful daughter and a loyal friend. She was and always will be a very special part of me. God gave a gift to the world when you were born. A person who loves, who cares, who sees a persons needs and fills it. One who encourages and lifts people up, who spends energy on others rather than herself. Someone who touches each life she enters and make a difference in the world. I hope that you may realize what a gift you were to everyone who has ever know you. Your love and memory will live on through your children, Timmy and Nathan. I know that as you watch over them, they are going to make you proud. This is not a time for us to shed our tears, but we should all be thankful that we were given the chance to have known her. I will alway treasure the times we spent together and cherish the memories that were created. I Love You | In Loving Memory

61: A mother is special, she's more than a friend. Whenever you need her, she'll give you a hand. She'll lead you and guide you in all that you do. Try all that she can just to see you get through. Good times and bad times, she's there for it all. Keep your head up, be proud, and always stand tall. She'll love you through quarrels and even big fights, or heart to heart chats on cold lonely nights. My mother is the greatest that I've ever known, I think God made my mother like He'd make his own. A praiser, a helper, an encourager too, nothing in this world that she wouldn't do. To help us succeed she does all that she can, raised a young boy now into a man. I want to say thank you for all that you do, please always know mom, that I love you.
62: All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my Angel Mother
63: You are the sunlight in my day, You are the moon I see far away. You are the tree I lean upon, You are the one that makes troubles be gone. You are the one who taught me life, How not to fight, and what is right. You are the words inside my song, You are my love, my life, my mom. You are the one who cares for me, You are the eyes that help me see. You are the one who knows me best, When it's time to have fun and time to rest. You are the one who has helped me to dream, You hear my heart and you hear my screams. Afraid of life but looking for love, I'm blessed for God sent you from above. You are my friend, my heart, and my soul You are the greatest friend I know. You are the words inside my song, You are my love, my life, my Mom.
65: M......is for the Million things she gave me. O......means Only that she is growing old. T......is for the Tears she shed to save me. H......is for her Heart of purest gold.

83: Psalms 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me besides the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oils My cup runneth over, Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever
84: One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints. Other times there were one set of footprints. This bothered me because I noticed that During the low periods of my life when I was Suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints. So I said to the Lord, "You promised me, Lord, that if I followed You, You would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods Of my life there have only been One set of prints in the sand. Why, When I have needed You most, You have not been there for me?" The Lord replied, "The times you have seen only one set of footprints Is when I carried you." | "Footprints in the Sand"
88: We all need someone To talk to in our life, A friend to whom we run In times of stress or strife A friend who's alway there Throughout the years, A friend we know will care And take away our fears. A friend who's alway near Waiting for our call, To wipe away our tears, And lift us when we fall. A loving friend indeed, On whom we can depend To fulfill our every need.

125: If tomorrow starts without me, And I'm not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand, And said my place was ready, In heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind; All those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye For all my life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for, So much left yet to do, It seemed almost impossible, That I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, The good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, I'd say good-bye and kiss you And maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, That this could never be, For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me. | And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From His great golden throne, He said, "This is eternity, And all I've promised you." Today your life on earth is past, But here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last, And since each day's the same way, There's no longing for the past. You have been so faithful, So trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things, You knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven, and now at last you're free. So won't you come and take my hand, and share my life with me? So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, For every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart.
127: Today may you be at peace, Knowing that you are exactly where you Need to be, and have everything you Need to fulfill God's purpose for you. Today may you believe That you are God's precious child In whom He is well pleased Today may you feel the love Shining through all of creation From the beginning of time Till the end of eternity. Today may you trust That all is well, And you are safe within God's arms forever
128: A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take | MOM
129: A child is the greatest joy and the ultimate blessing | God grant me the serenity To accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; And wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world As it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life And supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. | CHILD
130: “We are only given today and never promised tomorrow. So be sure to tell someone you Love them."
131: We little knew that day God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly. In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories. Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same. But God calls us one by one. The chain will link again. | Love

137: LIFE IS A JOURNEY, NOT A DESTINATION | When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no tears in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free Miss me a little but not for long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love we once shared Miss me but let me go For this is a journey we all must take And each must go alone It's all part of the Master's plan A step on the road to home When you are lonely and sick of heart Go to the friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me but let me go
138: "You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close you eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn you back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. or you can do what she'd want: Smile Open your eyes Love and go on." | Forever In My Heart
141: God saw I was getting tired as He put his arms around me and he whispered come with me There is a place for you in heaven where there is no suffering and no pain all you have to do is look up to the sky and know that you will see me As I am an angel in the stars what a great place to be I am an angel of God and a sparkle I shall be Know that I'm watching over you just look up and see I'm looking watching over you please don't be sad for me I'm your angel in the stars where I am happy now you will see and one day you will be with me
