Bow the knee...
'And now these three remain:
and love.
But the greatest of these is love.'

1 Corinthians 13:13

Quiet and peaceful... on one sunny morn,
Yet I was disturbed by sudden sounds born
From out of nowhere it seems ... and something went wrong...
The birds were not singing their song.

I did peek out the door and when doves took to flight,
From a disruption descending and rather than alight
and eat seeds left for them...
... some flew away...
I wish they'd been able to stay.

I walked with my dog and greeting as I traveled,
waving and smiling while I tried to unravel
more confusion .. I can't seem to unwind...
that can't be right, God gives us a sound mind.

When i replay songs and words I have thought
Strange circumstances tore life apart
I stood in a valley and said I would go..
Wherever You lead, though it frightened me so.

For though my mind can't sort out every detail
I know one thing is true, love cannot fail,
I can choose to dwell on what I can't change
Or on truth that sees all and will comfort again...

...every downtrodden heart and continues to love
the frightened, the weary and
scattered sweet doves.
