Love, a word we so freely use,
Yet which has about it a sense of mystery
Speaking of the deep bond between us,
That special chemistry.
Love, that weathers life’s ups and downs,
That expresses itself in treats and chocolates
And in a thousand other ways
Between the two of us.
Love, a word which speaks of God
For ‘God is love’, so different from
The caricatures and bizarre ideas
Some seem to have.
Love. Which sent Jesus to the cross,
Freely going, freely giving of Himself
So that our sin-stained life might be washed clean
And we become the ‘children of God.’
Love. So real, so powerful, so moving.
The love of God, beckoning us to follow Him.
