A Heart to Love You

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:



A Heart to Love You


This gift You’ve given
The gift of a heart to love You
The gift of intimacy with You
This gift of friendship with G-d
I do not take it lightly

Let me never forgot all You have done
That I might know You
That I might love You
That I might be Yours
All of the days of my life

Thank You for giving me the gift of life
You who are filled with love, with joy, with beauty
Thank You that I find life inside of who You are
That Your life sustains me

Who am I
That You formed and fashioned me in my mother’s womb
To be Your child, Your beloved One
To give myself fully and completely to You in love
To love You with all of my heart, mind, soul and strength

I love You
Let me love You more
Thank You for a heart that has been softened and touched by You,
by Your presence
Thank You for a heart that has been molded and made,
day by day,
into the image of the Creator
Thank You that I am united with You in love

What a beautiful gift You’ve given
Thank You, beloved G-d
Thank You, Abba
Thank You, Melech ha’Olam
There is none like You
