Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Who Am I?

Recommended Posts

Who am I?

Sometimes I wonder...

I am a disciple...stumbling along an old, rocky path

An angel? No...just a woman...

Straining just to touch the hem of His garment

Longing to be closer, ever closer to Him

I am a mother...my children are grown...my nest is empty

But no...I am a grandmother, and I am still needed

I am a great grandmother! Once again, I sing pretty lullabyes

As I cuddle soft innocence in my arms

Who am I?

I see my reflection looking back at me...

My father's hazel eyes that reflect my every mood

Deep emotions will change them from soft brown to green

No secrets will they keep

Hair gone silver now...not as thick and curly as it once was

Falling softly around a bemused smile

The woman in the mirror...young for my years

Although those laugh lines are showing

Who am I?

I am a dreamer...I know the world is a good place

Full of wonderful, caring neighbors and friends

But I see the way that it is changing, and I fear for the future

A future I will not see...

I am a friend...I am wise in my years...I love to give advice

But I am also foolish...the child in me refuses to grow up

Although I am growing old

I still believe in the magic of childhood

My little dog, my Raggedy Andy...he is the light of my eyes

He is my joy and my comfort

Always by my side, always ready with a tail wag or a snuggle

When I need a hug

 

Who am I?

I am a child

I am a mother, a lover, a friend

I am old and wise, I am young and silly

I am a woman

Full of love, with a big, warm heart

But full of sadness, too

I am a writer, I am a bard

A teller of tales, a singer of songs

I am a poet

Who am I?

Sometimes I wonder...
