Love: A Variation on a Theme

Posted by Cinda On July - 3 - 2013

If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything in its place, but have not love, I am a housekeeper ~ not a homemaker.

If I have time for waxing, polishing and decorative achievements but have not love, my children learn of cleanliness not godliness.

beachwalkLove leaves the dust in search of a child’s laugh.

Love smiles at the tiny fingerprints on a newly cleaned window.

Love wipes away the tears before it wipes up the spilled milk.

Love picks up the child before it picks up the toys.

Love is present through the trials.

Love reprimands, reproves and is responsive.

Love crawls with the baby, walks with the toddler, runs with the child, then, stands aside (yet ever so near) to let the youth walk into adulthood.

Love is the key that opens Salvation’s message to a child’s heart.

Before I became a mother, I took glory in my house of perfection.

Now I glory in God’s perfection when I hold my children.

As a mother there is much I must teach them, but the greatest of all is LOVE!
