Love Is

Love is patient to slow its pace

And walk with us our street

Love is kind when it takes time

To wash our dirty feet

Love protects from angry waves

And trusts when we can’t see

And hopes in hours before sunrise

When shadows finally flee

After everything in us has fallen

Love still stays standing true

Believing the impossible

That we will make it through


Ducks and Eagles

Way up in the sky

 Eagle soars all alone

Far from the mud below

Flying high in the blue

He thinks it is true

That he’s the best bird in the show

While down at the farm

 Ducky waddles along

With his tribe by the edge of the stream

Leading them on

To the cool water’s edge

Where their dirty feet 

Can be washed clean

Now that I your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet, you should also wash one another’s feet. John 13:14 NIV


Every Detail His Design

The Lord is my Shepherd. I have everything I need. Psalm 23:1 ESV

Drifts of snow on lonely hills

Pot-holed city streets

Blossoming of lilacs

Each keep their chosen beat

To the melody that God composed

Through slow and racing days

Each calling our attention

To His almighty ways

Yes – everything we need is ours

But not all things we would

Every detail his design

Of all things for our good

  1. Love the first one on love.. but then I loved the duckies too! Maundy Thursday and the foot-washing is my favourite liturgy of the whole church year. What a lesson. Then he showed them the full extent of His love… Thank you for sharing all three.
