Love one another


No new words today – just a few that have already been spoken by others.

“I may not the worlds smartest man, but I know what love is.”   Forest Gump

 

“Light of the world, shine on me – Love is the answer

Shine on us all, set us free – Love is the answer

When you feel afraid – love one another

When you’ve lost your way – love one another

When you’re all alone – love one another

When you’re far from home – love one another

When you’re down and out – love one another

When all your hope runs out – love one another

When you need a friend – love one another

When you’re near the end – love one another

We have to love one another”          Todd Rundgren

I will have peace – because you love me

I will love you – because you love me

Love makes us one”        Mark Ettinger

Faithfulness and Fruitfulness


You send the rain

You give the sun

Blossoms open from your light

Fruit comes from within your flower

Created by your love and power

Fruitfulness from Holiness

Faithfulness and nothing less

I’m opened by your light

I feel your love and power

Let your fruit come forth

From this open flower

And the seed that brings even more

A seed that’s sprouted  with roots down deep

The tree growing and showing its leaves

Faith waters it  – fruit grows from it

Time ripens it-I live from it

Faith brings the fruit that brings more faith

Faithfulness and fruitfulness

From one tree
