'God is love....' -john
'love is patient, love is kind. it doesn't envy, it doesn't boast,
it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it
is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not
delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. it always protects, always
trusts, always hopes, always perseveres
love never fails...' -paul
the artist Raffi is a big child advocate..."child honouring" is his deal...it is a movement that involves both a covenant and a philosophy to turn this cracked ball, we call home around...have i read up on it...can i say 'this is the answer!' not so much, but i dig Raffi and i think he's a compassionate man...
and...i believe in love...agape "God" sort of love...oh my experiences have been 'glimpses'...my dispersion of it has been in 'slivers,' but i think it grows...some places it's even poppin.' when buttressed up against paul's quote from 1st Corinthians...i am reminded of Mike Yaconelli's phrase...God's 'sticky annoying love'
if what i feel and experience regarding my children is somehow a shadow...a type...a brief glimpse into this thing called "love." then this Folkster says, 'heap it on' and let me receive it because it's the only thing that's gonna satisfy my heart...and it's the only thing worth giving away....or something....fin.
