Poem: The Strength of Love

The ether abounds with forces which act upon us; Some that strengthen and others that weaken: compassion, empathy and love are of the former, as are determination, hope, trust and resolve, there are many more. A mother's love is fierce and all consuming; it knows neither fear nor boundaries. It is powerful beyond imagining and faces fire and fate without flinching. I tell my daughter that her child needs her to be powerful and courageous; that the child feeds on the courage of the mother. I look into her eyes and tell her this because she is my child, as he is hers. Love is not emotion, it is conviction, it is strength of purpose and will, it is the threads of life woven tightly together and dyed in the colors of life, bright and dark together, a strong a weave. All the love that we have discovered flows through us from the very source of life itself, that roar of holiness which can not be named. All we know ,and more, is there, within reach, once hands, heart, and spirit open to release and to receive. Having put on the full armor of God, stand... breathe and stand in, on and with love as you walk bravely into the loom. All that have ever loved walk with you as companions, as family, as kindred hearts. Abba...... Abba....
