Such Love

 

Valentine’s Day – the day we set aside to celebrate the love we hold in our hearts for those most precious to us. We choose gifts we hope will convey the deepest feelings of our hearts. We search for the right words to express a love that goes beyond our ability to convey.

A few years ago I wrote a “Valentine” to the Lord – a humble attempt to say thank you to the One who loves us with perfect love:

I open my eyes to morning light

and You are already there

waiting, listening –

I have only to whisper

within the stillness of my heart.

I give you the day,

the one You

penned before I was born,

And You stand

with outstretched hand.

 

I sometimes walk with heavy heart,

discouraged and confused.

You listen, with infinite patience

to the words You’ve

heard so many times before,

 

and send the answer once again.

No well-deserved condemnation

or  reproach,

simple grace that embraces

this troublesome child,

and gathers up the tears.

 

How to say, with simple words,

what such love means.

The heart cannot speak

clever lines and perfect prose;

it’s language is the

giving of itself to the One

who gave everything.

“Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go for to You I entrust my life.” Psalm 143:8

Happy Valentine’s Day dear ones,

Linda
