A LIFE WELL LIVED

Mother Teresa

 

ADMIRED MORE THAN GLITZ AND GLAM

WALKED ON EARTH AS MEEK AS A LAMB

Hugs to you for the fond reminder!

    Once in a school, a teacher described the gentle ministry of Mother Teresa as a ‘hidden’ example of Christ as a Light of Hope in a world of pain and despair. Thank you for blog.
