The Fullness of Love

Faith does not end
Though our eyes cannot see
Beyond where sky brushes sod
Faith swells from fathoms
Of mystery
Where hearts trust humbly in God

Hope does not end
In spite of our grief
It leaps from well-springs within
Hope is the foothold
Of our belief
In He who forgives every sin

Love does not end
Though death kisses the cheek
Of those we cherish most dear
Beautiful love
When we cannot speak
It flows in every tear

During the wedding reception, (my friend, the pianist at Rob and Emily’s wedding) received word that her mother had passed away. She left the house of rejoicing to go to the house of mourning…
Love; the fullness of both joy and sorrow align in its every breath.

 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor. 13:13
