"I love you, Mother," said little John.
Then forgetting his work, his cap went on,
And he was in the garden swing,
And she had the wood and water to bring.
"I love you, Mother," said rosy Nell;
"I love you more than tongue can tell,"
Then she teased and pouted half the day
‘Till her mother was glad when she went to play.
"I love you, Mother," said little Nan;
Today I’ll help you all I can.
My doll and playthings I know will keep."
Then she rocked the baby fast asleep.
Stepping softly she brought the broom
And swept the floor and tidied the room.
Busy and happy all day was she,
Helpful and good as a child could be.
"I love you, Mother," again they said,
Three little children going to bed.
How do you think the mother guessed
Which of them really loved her best?

The Lord Jesus proved His love by the deeds He did here on earth. People came to him with their problems, knowing that He cared. Even the children could feel His love and were not afraid.
Let us love like the Lord Jesus loved, not just with words, but by our deeds (the things we do).
"My little children, let us not
love in word,
neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth."
1 John 3:18
