Patrick's Poem: "You Are.."

Here is a wonderful poem our very own Patrick (Woolly) wrote about how God is everything to us..it so wonderfully expresses how much Papa means to us!  I'm calling it "You Are.." for I don't know the title and feel that sums it up so well, as it is filled with thoughts about who He is!  Hope that is okay with you, Patrick!  I'm putting it here for all to enjoy:

"You Are..." 

You are the light that shines within me.
You are the song that soothes my soul.
You are the life that lives within me.
You are the One that makes me whole.

You are the gift that fills my present.
You are the answer to my past.
You are the secret of my future.
You are the Truth that holds me fast.

You are my every inspiration.
You are my courage in the night.
You are the hope that holds my head high.
You are the thought that sets me right.

You are the glory of the sunset.
You are the myst’ry of the stars.
You are my first and last and all between.
You are the peace within my heart.

You are the comfort brought by others.
You are the kind words of a friend.
You are the secret in a stranger’s smile.
You are my rainbow’s end.

You are the Love that burns within me.
You are the Love surrounding me.
You are the Love I can depend on.
You are my Love, Lord, eternally.

  2. Thank you Mathew, may we know that we ARE filled with God's Love! (Is that what was meant by Agape? I mean. is that what Jesus was asking Peter - Do you love with my Love? Or even, Do you KNOW that it's my love that you love with? That we are that close, we are one and that my love is your love?)
    This poem sings inside of me. I remember sort of asking for these words so as to be able to express myself in my own way and then when they were written down, it was as if the Holy Spirit was offering a tune as well. And though you can't hear me sing my version, I wholeheartedly believe that if you ask, the Holy Spirit will give you the tune as well! Many blessings! Patrick
