Apr 21 – Shirley Temple

Shirley Temple Black died in February at the age of 85.She was a much loved American film and television actress, singer, and public servant, most famous as a child star in the 1930s. After retiring from acting at age 22, she went on to hold several successful diplomatic posts. Though a success on many fronts, she said that her greatest role was as a wife, mother and grandmother. She once said, “there’s nothing like love, real love, nothing.” How true! But there’s no love on earth as great as God’s love. He loved so much that He gave Jesus, His Son to provide forgiveness and cleansing all who sincerely ask,. John wrote-.” This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Or, as the gospel song says,- “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell.”
