Where is Love?


 Love is in the gentle words
you offer a friend in pain
and in a radiant rainbow
that follows after the rain.

 Love is in the mountains
majestically towering above
and in the face of small children
and the parents who raise them with love.

 Love is in all of creation,
created in every part,
and most of all love can be found
when God dwells in your heart.

Very touching, Connie.

I especially like the part about love being found in the face of a little child...their hearts are so pure and their love so freely given. What a blessing to have these little ones in our lives!
