Manifest Evidence


A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; 
as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 
 By this all will know that you are My disciples, 
if you have love for one another.” 
John 13:34-35

With the abundant rain we've been blessed with
in southern Ontario, Canada,
fields and gardens beam 
with Nature's/Mercy's opulent pleasure!

The most beautiful bloom 
in the garden of life
is love
Love is patient and kind...
1 Cor.13:4

Not by grand pomp and show
Or flourish of fine word
But by our love, others will know
That we follow the Lord

…not by the high or low
Of status, color, creed
But by our love, others will know
That we are Christ’s, in deed

Not for glory or praise
Or Duty’s rigid bent
But by compassion’s gentle ways
Love’s grace is evident

Not to create a throne
For self-indulgent pride
But by our love, God’s love is shown
His glory magnified
