NO GREATER LOVE

LAST SIGNS OF AUTUMN, PHOTO BY KATHY BOECHER


A tiny droplet of water clings to a dying leaf – hanging on for dear life,

Soon it falls into oblivion into the waiting earth below,

The tears of a child sets off a chain reaction of frustration, helplessness,

Defiance, insecurity and a plethora of emotions,

Only to be replaced with a smile big enough to consume the hardest of hearts;

You fall in love – once – again – another time – again,

Each time you believe it’s the real thing, the only thing,

Life changes you, your opinions, your goals,

You fall out of love.

Saline fills the eyes and tears result. Tiny capsules filled with emotion waiting to be released.

Self worth can be squashed in a second, with just a word, creating a mountain of anxiety and angst.

Is there anyone who can wipe away the tears?

Is there no one who feels our pain?

Will our tears ever be erased, never to return?

While we walk this planet, hearts will break.

Tears will fill swollen eyes.

Life will go on.

But there is a love much greater than we can ever know.

A love that has no boundaries, conditions or expectations.

Just pure unblemished love that transcends the ages.

The love of God is available to all.

It’s freely given.

Because you are loved by the Creator of the Universe.

He treasures you as His own child.

He loves purely.

He asks only that you believe,

Trust,

Have faith in His plans for you.

Surrender.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Poems such as this one stir up more intense feelings than normal for me. Witnessing our Savior throughout these verses . . . again cherishing a single love, none greater. Blessings to you Kathy for igniting a flame filled with love, faith, and hope.
