In preparing for a message I will be sharing this weekend, which has to do with “relationships”. I’ll be talking about how every relationship should consist of 4 things: Trust. Love. Giving. Forgiveness. I also jotted down this poem while processing…
Walking, talking, breathing, believing.
What am I seeing? Is it two lives redeeming - time.
Sublime purpose to co-exist, experience bliss,
reminisce, turn and twist through
journeys of love, both agape and fileo.
The giving tree is monumental.
to produce fruit with roots. of forgiveness.
Trust built on bloodied cross
hope maintained - redeeming loss
of that which once seemed unredeemable…
Relationship / Kinship / Friendship
Maybe we could call this -
a wish for perfect union,
a desire for holy communion
between forgiven sinners, once hungry beggars,
no longer left alone strangers. But rather
rope holding lovers, or twine connected brothers,
or cord bonded sons and mothers,
Fathers collecting wonders —
of laughter, through tears,
long days - short years.
This… is Relationship.
This is what Jesus intended
Hearts mended, broken lives blended
into His tapestry of grace / let’s replace the space between us
With comforting hugs and kisses
With warm gentle words and wishes
Washing over hurtful offenses
because this… is Relationship.
