A Labor of Love

 

Follow Me, I will make you fishers of men,
Seek first my Father's Kingdom in heaven above.
Through our rhyming words this glorious message we send,
Writing poems for Christ is a labor of love.

Jesus came that we might have abundant life and,
Faith as passionate as the heat of a wood burning stove.
Through our poetic visions we share God's redemptive plan,
Writing poems for Christ is such a labor of love.

Ask, Seek and Knock--Ask for what you need in His name,
Present your request at the throne of grace above.
Through our literary images, lives are often changed,
Writing poems for Christ is a wonderful labor of love.

Have faith in your God, wash each others feet,
Practice holy living as sweet as the aroma of a clove.
Through our poetic insights our faith becomes complete,
Writing poems for Christ is a joyous labor of love.

Man shall not live by bread alone -- pray every day,
Bear much fruit to glorify your Father above.
Through our creative thoughts others seem to find their way,
Writing poems for Christ is an exciting labor of love.
