I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Devotion A Reflection of Him

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm: for love is strong as death; …Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned (despised).
Song of Solomon 8:6-7

Love is…Warm, cuddly.
Sentimental, snugly,
Googly eyes Passionate sighs,
Love is all this.

Love is more…Holding tight
Even when all’s not right,
When he’s got the virulent flu, . . . or you.
How can you resist?

Love is Deeper–higher,
A cleansing fire,
Forgiving wrongs, Holding on,
Faithful to the end.

For true love is a reflection
Of Christ’s resurrection,
Sacrifice at Calvary,
Giving all for love–truly
Sets us free.

Lord, in a culture where vows mean little, help me to stand by mine not only physically, but also mentally. Help me to screen my thoughts and actions that my love might stand strong for you and for the one I vow to love
“’til death do we part.” Amen
