It can be hard to tell what’s real,
From what’s not,
Besides the fact that,
What’s true for you,
And what’s true for me,
Could be a million miles away…
A distance great enough to form a chasm,
A million miles deep,
Or make a million children weep,
Or arouse a million sleepy bears,
Or stir up the waters of an entire ocean.
But there’s really only one truth worth mentioning here,
And that is the love light of Christ,
Shining down so that we might absorb,
And reflect this love light back out,
Into our world…
For Christ’ love light alone,
Is strong enough to disintegrate every barrier,
Bridge every chasm,
Offer deep rest and perfect healing peace,
Dry every tear,
Or calm an entire ocean.
For Christ’ love light raises us swiftly,
To higher ground…
Placing us in that holy meeting space,
My truth and yours…
May we go there now.
A blessed and holy St. Valentines day to my Word Press family and greater world family.
