Gods love

"God's Love"
God's love is all around us
And beautiful it is to see.
Like Autumn leaves a falling
And the rippling of the sea.
Like flowers in full bloom
With colors glowing bright.
Like fireflies all around us
Just lighting up the night.
God's love is in a rainbow
Shining in the sky.
And with the little birds
That are ever flying high.
In our little children
Precious one and all.
In Winter and in Springtime
The Summer and the Fall.
God's love is on the mountain
Where the trees are very green.
And down in the valley
Where much of life is seen.
In a time of sorrow
God's love is surely found.
When all your friends and loved ones
Are come to gather round
God's love is not just things
That we can see or own.
It's also what's inside us
To help to take us home.

"The LORD appeared to us in the past,
saying: "I have loved you with an
everlasting love; I have drawn you
with loving-kindness. " ~Jeremiah 31:3~

Jesus said "I no longer call you servants,
because a servant does not know his master's
business. Instead, I have called you
friends, for everything that I learned
from my Father I have made known to you."
~John 15:15~
"God is love, and he who abides in love
abides in God, and God in him."
~1 John 4:16~

"God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us." ~Romans 5:8~

Of all creation's treasures rare,

Not one compares in worth with man;

In God's own image he was made

To fill a place in His great plan.

—D. De Haan*

Our value is not measured in what we
make of ourselves, but by the
One who made us.*
How blessed are the children

Who in their fathers see

The tender Father-love of God,

And find their way to Thee.

*Our heavenly Father longs to spend
quality time with His children.*
Loved with everlasting love,

Led by grace that love to know—
Spirit, breathing from above
Thou hast taught me it is so. —Robinson
*God's love knows no limits.*

"It is no small thing to be on terms of
friendship with God."
