*A Love to Remember*


With affectionate hands He shaped me
He shaped my eyes, mouth, nose, and ears
then He selected my family
and there I was swimming in my mother's womb
with a new sense of warmth and belonging

With the push of a loving mother
I was slowly drafted into this world
My eyes were still closed
but I still felt His love
for His eyes followed me wherever I went

As I grew up I saw the world
I even dared to taste of its pleasures
daring even to taste the fruit I was told not to touch
but I still felt His love
for His eyes followed me wherever I went

Then one day I heard His voice
asking me to remember His love
telling me no other love can compare
and I listened in tears
and I ran straight into His arms again

He told me I'd never experience true love
unless I first understood His love
Then when I finally understood
He gave me someone to love
He gave me someone to share His love

There I was again
still in this world
but no longer of this world
No longer will I forget
that He loved me first
and it's the way He loved me
that I will never forget
.
On this beautiful Valentine's day
I choose to remember God's love for me
I choose to remember the way He loved me first...


Happy valentine's day everyone
