love freely given

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Adore

FMF-Adore-300x300

To love and care for with deep affection

I love the thought and concept, and even more,
the reality of adoration
of the One G-d who deserves it all

Adoring the One
who gave all for me
Adoring the beautiful uncreated One
Today, moment by moment by moment

He gave me all
He gave me life

I get to receive His love
and pour out myself at His feet
I get to be a fragrant offering on behalf
of the One who has captured my heart
I get to give myself fully and freely
for the sake of the one who consumes my soul

Adoring, capturing, unquenchable love
Given to me from the One who is jealous love

Fill me with Your love
Your love that is burning fire
Your love that is holy desire
The beauty of love given and taken,
shared one with the other
That I get to partake of all of my days

A
Given
Life
All
for
Love

a tiny flame from an aching heart

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

because

I write
because
I pray
because
I breathe
because
I am

nothing of my own to give
except my heart,
no offering that looks extravagant
just my “yes”
no sacrifice or else I would bring it
just day to day following my Father’s way
nothing drawing attention
of the world
or the peoples
just a tiny flame
from an aching heart
that I willingly offer
to the G-d of my life

this is my offering today
this is my gift of love to You
