A Story of Love

My youngest boy and I were talking
About the many meanings of love
And just what a great gift it is
Lovingly sent from up above
Love has to do with sacrifice
By simply showing how we care
Material things mean nothing
If true love's not already there
Just caring and understanding
Being somewhere because we can
Calling up on the telephone
Just gently holding someone's hand
Some people buy love with money
And sadder to say - some accept
But when that money is all gone
Then one really has nothing left
Yes, I'll take love over money
I'll take love over silver and gold
Money can't keep us company
Or give us a hug when we're cold
I've seen money do awful things
Like tearing apart a family
The love of money can corrupt
I know for, it happened to me
No, our money cannot buy love
God given love just can't be bought
Though it may gain us attention
It's not the real comfort we sought
I'd like my Grandkids to love me
Not because I could buy them things
I'd like them to love me for me
For contentment that true love brings
Thank You Lord, for showing us how
How to express Heaven sent love
And that's what love is all about
God's greatest gift from up above

|Amen Paul! Truly Christ said it all, it is in the love of money that is the root of all evil. It is when you give yourself away that you see the real importance of life! Thank God for his grace and mercy that supercede all things and we are rewarded by the love and forgiveness of Christ, we see it in the faces of our children and grandchildren and it makes us be what we are to be, love.
I truly enjoyed this poem!

You captured God's greatest gift and orchestrated it into a poetic song.
Yes, when all else fails we need to show our love for one another.
This is because - "Love never fails" Why? Because God IS love!
Thank you Paul for this poetic reminder!
May you be showered with peace, love and blessings in Christ,
