Love So Sweet

Characteristics of Love!  Click the link: Love

 

Its sweet like the nectarof the garden flower,

its soothing like the buzzing

of a bumble bee,imagesZO0FS1WZ

its warm like the rays

of the morning sun,

its the search of a love so pure

which keeps me on the run.
its the pulse in my vein,

the thoughts in my brain,

in every breath that I take,

the smile my lips make,

its in the twinkle of my eye,

till the day I die.
its the dream in my sleep,

its springs freshest leaf;

a love so rare like this

will always be with me for keeps.
its the warmth of my blood,

as my feelings flood,

as says my heart’s beat,

its depth touches the ocean’s feet.
even if its heart searing pain,

with nothing to gain,

I will feel it as the tear on my cheek,

and without words my soul will speak.
a feeling so sincere,

a bond so strong,

I know my soul will never guide me wrong.
I will wait till my last sunset,

till my heart slows down with a dull ache,

till my eyes are wet,

till I meet my soul’s mate,

yes, I will wait.

Friendship

We grow closer to each other
When we’re closer to the Lord,
The common faith that we share
Binds our hearts in one accordImage result for friendship

 

For friendships last a life time
When built on Jesus Christ,
Throughout each different season,
We find we are in life

 

Friends are there through times of grief
And times when hope is gone,
Always there with encouragement
So we can carry on

 

So thank the Lord for giving you
A true and faithful friend,
To laugh with you, and cry with you,
On whom you can depend

 

For friends will stay no matter what,
Giving you support
And together your hearts truly unite
With the love of the Lord.

Love of Friends

157653954

People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
Not on success or on worldly fame,

But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
For only the knowledge that we’re understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,

And we rob ourselves of life’s greatest need
When we ‘lock up our hearts’ and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find
A kindred spirit whose heart and mind

Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life’s completeness and richness depends
On the things we share with our loved ones

Bond of Perfection

image

But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. Colossians 3:14 NKJV

The value and worth of each and every person is based upon the life that Jesus gave for us.

Through His Son, God has placed the highest value on each person. We care about others, not because we like their personality or because we have been treated fairly, but simply because God cares for them as He cares for us.

We all have needs; we all need forgiveness, and we all need Jesus. We can’t pick and choose the people we will be kind to, or respond to in love. (Well, we can but that is definitely not the heart of God. ) We can’t hide from people and wish they would go away either.

No, God is always reaching out to people, and He uses us to touch their lives too. This is the “bond of perfection”.

Enjoy His Presence

What is prayer?

Well, sometimes its a calming place of silence where we can find hope for a renewed mind and life. At other times we wrestle, and struggle for an opportunity to tell God what we’ve done wrong, and seek His forgiveness. And it is in that forgiveness, we find freedom and a reason for celebration.

We thank Him for all that He’s done for us, and all that He’s yet to do in our lives. Prayer can also be a very intimate time where the Lord whispers His love for us, and in return we tell Him how much we adore Him.

Many of us have designated prayer times, and there is nothing wrong with that at all. However, these blessings are not limited to a particular time during the day. We can talk with Him throughout the day in an ongoing conversation. Simply thanking Him, confessing, worshipping, and simply enjoying His presence.

Prayer isn’t a secret formula that we use to get what we want in life. It shouldn’t be based on how we feel, how long we pray, how loud, or by using any particular or “correct” words. When we communicate with our Father, we pray in faith, simply and sincerely, knowing that we are experiencing a powerful moment between us and our Father.

There is nothing any better than having a strong connection with God, through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
