Love is

Love is not a response to how another treats you, but a decision of how you will treat another.

A Bright Light

I am a bright light
Shining in the night sky
Big and bold and beautiful.

Often admired
And by which many are inspired.
I am indeed honored in this place.

I know that I am a dull rock
Having no light of my own.
The light I give is what I have received from you.

I am pleased to be your reflection.
(Reprinted from I Do, by Doris Trueheart)

You keep me from Evil

(Meditations on 1 Chron. 4:10)

Oh God,
You are a blessing to me,
For your hand is upon me.
You keep me from evil
That my heart may not be grieved.

(Reprinted from I Do, by Doris Trueheart)

Break Me

Break me that I may be fixed.
Prune me that I may grow
Stronger and bear more fruit.
Purge me that I may be clean.
Empty me that I may be filled.
Save me that I may die
To rise again to live forevermore.

(Reprinted from I Do, by Doris Trueheart)

Chameleon

Pink, red, orange,
Green, black, blue,
Brown, yellow, turquoise.
Tell me, what's your hue?

You change your colors at will
To blend with your habitation,
Hoping not to be discovered,
For fear of your expiration.
Not seen, not heard.
Not one dissenting word.

Your effect is null.
And your life is dull
Because your life you sought to save,
Yet it has brought you to your grave,
And “Useless” is your epitaph.

Yet you came with purpose:
Destined for your life to make a change.
But you allowed Fear to grab a hold;
And the whole course of your life, He did rearrange
So you would never see the perfect will of God complete
And let your life be lived and ended in defeat.
